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."
