THE POWER OF DETERMINED INNOVATION
Lo Scienzato has deliberately pushed Panerai’s existing technical and mental boundaries, revealing the electrifying horizons of a new dimension. Today this model, whose mechanics and style have steadily evolved for almost a decade, has returned to the scene, and it is reaffirming its extrovert character through its dominant presence. Unmistakable, but not unchanged, the new Luminor Tourbillon GMT is revealed today as one of the most challenging projects of Panerai Laboratorio di Idee.
"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.
