In 2016 at the SIHH watch fair, the luxury Panerai Italian brand introduced one of the most innovative creations – Lo Scienziato Luminor 1950 Tourbillon GMT Titanio.
A highly technical and unique watch with a 47mm diameter titanium case made by #D printing and Direct Metal Laser Sintering technology. Now the Italian manufacturer has presented a new version of this model.
Release of the Lo Scienziato Luminor 1950 Tourbillon GMT The Titanio for the year 2018 uses the same 3D print technology to produce a titanium case in which the process allows the production of metal parts or cavities to be shaped by 3D printing layer by layer, a technique often reserved for top-notch prototypes.
The mechanism which powers the watch is manual winding P.2005 / T with a special turbine patented by Panerai, which was also used to make the previous skeletonized watch.
The mechanism is sceletonized and comes with titanium bridges and plates. The blue hands on the watch are perfect contrast and additionally accentuate the brushed metal finish of the watch. The watch was estimated at €139,000, which is approximately $170,600.
