Panerai Luminor Tourbillon GMT – Lo Scienziato
"Lo Scienziato" is back, more impressive than ever. Don't miss the video.
The first watch of the collection was launched in 2010 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the celestial observations of the Tuscan genius Galileo Galilei. Through the power of determined innovation, Lo Scienzato has deliberately pushed Panerai’s existing technical and mental boundaries and it is today as one of the most challenging projects of Panerai Laboratorio di Idee.

Profoundly changed in appearance, the Luminor Tourbillon GMT - Lo Scienziato already forceful personality is now highlighted by a Grade 5 titanium case, with a sandblasted finish and a steeper gradient. This polyvalent, tough material has high resistance to corrosion, and is at the same time 40% lighter than steel. But what makes the case unique is the way in which it is created, using 3D printing with Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS). Most importantly, this process enables a caseband to be formed which is hollow inside, reducing its weight to a record 18 grams without reducing its strength or water-resistance. The bezel, winding crown and lever of the crown-protecting Safety Lock™ device are all made of carbotech.
The Luminor Tourbillon GMT uses the P.2005/T calibre, a hand-wound mechanical Manufacture movement with GMT function, introduced by Panerai for the first time in 2016. Mechanical interpretation with steam punk influences are all that remain of the conventional layout of mechanical watch, which has been distorted and intentionally stripped to the bone. The result is a minimalist design with an original, modern approach, including its three spring barrels mounted in series (patented) which provide a power reserve of six days. It too is entirely made of titanium; this has helped to restrict its weight to just 23 grams. The result of Panerai’s expressive power and technical skills, it relies for its performance on a tourbillon device with a cage designed to rotate – once every 30 seconds instead of the traditional 60 seconds – on an axis which is perpendicular to that of the balance wheel. The movement has now been further developed to display the power reserve indicator on the front of the watch for the first time.
The Panerai Luminor Tourbillon GMT is supplied with a second strap made of black Velcro with charcoal grey stitching and a titanium clasp, in a box made of grey sandblasted cherry wood with the Panerai logo engraved on the lid.
Representing a blend of Italian design with Swiss watchmaking technology, Officine Panerai follows the inspiration of its home city of Florence, which was the cradle of the Renaissance movement and all the art and science for which it was famous.Find out more >
