Panerai Launches Luminor Series Lo Scienzato Two Time Tourbillon Watch

The Panerai Creative Workshop (Laboratory of Ideas) created another technological achievement, adding a new LoScienzato (meaning ‘scientist’) two-time tourbillon watch (model: PAM768) to the Luminor series. .

   The history of the scientist project dates back to 2010, when Panerai launched the first LoScienzato watch (the other two watches were L’Astronomo and the Jupiterium), in honor of Galileo Galilei’s invention of the astronomical telescope and observation of astrology 400th anniversary. These timepieces have become coveted masterpieces by Panerai collectors.

   LoScienzato is used to name Panerai’s most technologically advanced watches. ‘LoScienzato aims to advance Panerai’s existing technology and inner boundaries, revealing exciting new horizons and dimensions.’

   The new work of this year’s creative workshop, the Luminor series tourbillon timepiece, is one of the most challenging projects to date.

   This watch features a 47mm diameter five-grade titanium case, which is sandblasted and contrasted with the Carbotech carbon fiber composite crown and bezel, while emphasizing the army green and gunmetal gray hollow dial.

   The use of advanced materials (titanium and carbon fiber) has reduced the weight of this watch by 40% (compared to steel). This watch is equipped with a P.2005 / T manual winding movement and has a power reserve of up to 6 days. (Photo / text watch home Xu Chaoyang)
