Luxury Italian watch manufacturer Panerai has unveiled its latest masterful timepiece, the Lo Scienziato Luminor Tourbillon GMT PAM00768. The new immaculate watch features a P.20005/T movement system alongside a six-day power reserve. The dial itself features minute and second hands as well as day and night indicators, finalizing the dial’s mechanics with the watchmaker’s in-house tourbillon escapement.
The overall movement of the internal workings, which can be seen via the hollow casing, showcases the complex inner-workings that prioritizes itself on strong architectural design. The 47mm diameter body was built via a technique known as direct metal laser sintering, allowing for a luxurious final look. The fiberglass lasering method allowed for Panerai to superimpose five levels of titanium metal powder, layer by layer, which harden throughout the process. This allows for the material to be roughly 40% lighter than if using traditional titanium.
