Luminor Tourbillon GMT - 47mm
LABORATORIO DI IDEE EXPERIENCE
To celebrate the launch of the new E-Commerce Platform in Europe and Switzerland, one of Panerai’s most amazing creations, “Luminor Tourbillon GMT”, is now available online. The client purchasing this amazing timepiece will be offered the unique opportunity to experience an exclusive private visit to the Manufacture in Neuchâtel - the Panerai Laboratorio di Idee - where “Luminor Tourbillon GMT” was created. Only one example of this timepiece is available for online purchase and therefore there will be only one chance to discover the Manufacture and Panerai Laboratorio di Idee: the research and innovation lab where the technical solutions in the field of high-end technical sport watches come to light.
HIGH - END TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION.
With its Titanium case 3D-printed using the technique of Direct Metal Laser Sintering - technology that allows metal parts to be produced or cavities to be moulded by 3D printing layer by layer - the Luminor Tourbillon GMT is undoubtedly one of the most technical and surprising creations of the Panerai Manufacture in Neuchâtel.

BEYOND THE HORIZONS OF INNOVATION.
"The lightness of Luminor Tourbillon GMT is remarkable, particularly considering its technical features: hours, minutes, small seconds, GMT with am/pm indication, a power reserve of six days with indication of the power remaining on the back, and a Tourbillon escapement. The secret of its lightness lies in the ingenious work of minimalisation carried out by the Laboratorio di Idee at the Panerai Manufacture on the case and mainly on the sophisticated P.2005/T Titanium movement."
"The case is made using a very innovative technology which enables it to be hollowed out internally, forming an extremely complex geometrical cavity. The technology used to build the case is called Direct Metal Laser Sintering: this process builds up the case layer by layer by means of a fibre optic laser using powdered grade 5 titanium. The successive layers merges together and become completely solid and reducing the total weight by 40% compared to traditional titanium."
First Panerai tourbillon calibre in titanium with fine skeletonized bridges and plates. Thanks to the lower density of this material – about half that of the brass of which these components are normally made – the overall weight of the movement is 35% less than that of the P.2005/S skeletonised version. The long power reserve of six days is achieved by the three spring barrels connected in series, and the power remaining is shown by a special indicator on the back of the movement. All this fine work of skeletonising enables the fascinating details to be admired, such as the winding and unwinding of the spring inside each barrel, the intricate interconnection of the wheel work and in particular the rotation of the tourbillon cage, which, in the version patented by Panerai, is fundamentally different from the normal arrangement. In order to compensate more precisely for the effects of gravity on the escapement, thus achieving more accurate operation, the tourbillon cage rotates on an axis which is perpendicular, not parallel, to that of the balance, and it makes a complete rotation every 30 seconds instead of once a minute.Discover calibre
Panerai watches are produced to very high standards of quality. It is worth remembering that the mechanical parts run 24 hours a day when used, so the watch must undergo regular maintenance to ensure long life and good operation.
