Watches & Wonders 2020 Shanghai Haute Horlogerie Fair] The first Panerai Lo Scienziato was launched in 2010 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Galileo’s astrological observations in Tuscany, Italy. After nearly a decade replica Panerai watches of development, this watch is back in the public eye, with a classic style that refuses to change. It has to be said that this new Luminor Tourbillon GMT is a sight to behold at Haute Horlogerie Shanghai 2020, so let’s admire it! (watch model PAM00768)
One of the most challenging creations of the Panerai Creative Workshop, the new Luminor Tourbillon GMT Luminor Tourbillon takes Panerai’s watchmaking excellence to a new level with the use of innovative materials. It combines technical excellence with a distinctive aesthetic style, representing Italian excellence in watchmaking.
The case is made of high-performance sandblasted titanium, a material that gives the watch a distinctive look and a distinctive tactile feel. With a diameter of 47 mm, the watch remains Panerai’s distinctive “oversized” size, giving it a tough, tough look. The bezel is made of Carbotech™, a high-performance composite material that gives each watch a distinctive look and personality. This material is also capable of adapting to extreme conditions, making it lightweight, pressure-resistant and corrosion-resistant.
When in the closed position, it presses against the crown to create a seal that prevents water from flowing into the movement, thus ensuring the proper functioning of the watch.
The body of the watch is inevitably boring in monochrome black and grey, while the military green dial, with its openworked design, is the finishing touch, giving it a steampunk feel. The design of this timepiece overturns the traditional mechanical watch design, replacing it with a deliberately distorted and hollowed-out skeleton that makes the most of minimalism. The numerals suspended on the outer edge of the dial, the small seconds counter, the 24-hour display and the power-reserve indicator are also striking.
The watch is fitted on a grey alligator leather strap with stitching in the same colour and a sandblasted titanium folding clasp to ensure a uniform tone. A black nylon strap with a screwdriver for changing the strap and a grey sandblasted cherry wood case with the Panerai logo engraved on the lid are also included. This model is equipped with the P.2005/T hand-wound skeletonized mechanical movement, entirely designed and developed by Panerai, which is equipped with a precision tourbillon and offers a compact and high-performance design. It is worth noting that the movement is also made of titanium and weighs only 23 grams.
Conclusion: This watch is a perfect blend of classic design and avant-garde style, and it fully demonstrates Panerai’s superb watchmaking skills.
