Definitely not a new skeleton, but never the less one of the most beautiful around.
“Lo Scienziato” is one of the many sobriquets earned by Galileo Galilei in the course of his long life entirely devoted to research into extending the boundaries of human knowledge through scientific learning. His discoveries had a revolutionary impact on the development of mechanical timekeeping, which would not be as it is today without Galileo’s formulation of the law of isochronism of the pendulum. Officine Panerai’s link with “Lo Scienzato” is founded on this and reinforced by the Tuscan origins they have in common.
Now it is expressed in the Florentine brand’s new tribute to Galileo: Lo Scienziato – Luminor 1950 Tourbillon GMT Ceramica, a watch of remarkable technical content with costly finishing, a demonstration of the depth of technical horological knowledge that exists in the Manufacture in Neuchâtel. Thanks to the extensive work of skilful skeletonisation and the sapphire crystal porthole in the back, the P.2005/S hand-wound movement with tourbillon escapement, entirely developed and produced in the Officine Panerai Manufacture, is in full view.
Lo Scienziato – Luminor 1950 Tourbillon GMT Ceramica (PAM00528) is supplied with a strap of natural, untreated leather, fastened by an adjustable buckle in blackened steel. The special presentation case in which it is sold also contains a second black leather strap and a screwdriver.
