panrai luminor tourbillon gmt 47


The approach is logical. Combining fine watchmaking materials and mechanisms is the guarantee to making a captivating watch. Let us demonstrate with the PAM00768.

Released for the first time in 2010 in a 48 mm ceramic Radiomir case, Lo Scienziato, “the scientist“ in Italian, in homage to Galileo, returns this year in a sophisticated version with a 47 mm Luminor case made of sandblasted titanium. This option chosen by Panerai endows this exclusive timepiece with a completely different personality. Carbotech, which forms the bezel, crown and lever of the crown’s protection mechanism, enhances the high-tech personality of this watch. The green-colored components provide an easy-to-read layout of the time information. Within this modern ultra-light architecture, weighing just 18 g, presides the P.2005/T caliber, which also has a record-breaking weight of 23 g.

The small seconds dial at 9 o’clock is arranged symmetrically with the am/pm indication. Everything is powered by the manual-winding movement equipped with a tourbillon and its cage which pivots once every 30 seconds to enhance the precision and smooth running. Three barrels assembled in series also guarantee an ample power reserve of 6 days, which is displayed on the power reserve indicator.
