The ability to present invisible time on the square of the wrist is the fundamental charm of mechanical watches. The tourbillon watch, which is very representative, is even more so. Aside from the precise structure, just listening to its rhythmic operation with ears is a great enjoyment. In 2018, the famous Italian watch brand Panerai introduced the 38mm Luminor Due series of watches for the first time at the SIHH watch exhibition, and presented two complicated timepieces in front of us. Among them, a watch named Lo Scienziato produced a titanium case with 3D stereo printing technology, and was equipped with a Panerai LUMINOR 1950 tourbillon titanium with two tourbillon movements equipped with a tourbillon device. With its classic design and ingenious dial layout, the watch has left a deep impression. Let’s take a look at this outstanding and complex watch together: (Watch model: PAM00767)
A masterpiece of innovative timepieces
I believe that friends who like Panerai will not be unfamiliar with this panel hollow design. In fact, as early as 2016, the brand launched the first Lo Scienziato watch with direct metal laser sintering technology. In addition to retaining the original features of the new model, the details of the appearance have also been adjusted accordingly. The dial is also equipped with blue hands, which are elegantly harmonious with the metal tone of the titanium case. The stitching of the black leather strap also echoes blue, emphasizing the sporty style and complementing the innovative technology used in the watch.

The new watch has a diameter of 47 mm and the case is made of direct metal laser sintering technology. It is made of titanium by 3D printing. The shape follows the brand’s usual pillow design, showing the unique aesthetics of Panerai watches. The bezel is polished and retouched, full and delicate, and the rest is frosted, showing a completely different visual effect. Thanks to innovative technology, the titanium case with complex geometry can guarantee the watch’s excellent water resistance (up to 10 bar, which is equal to a depth of about 100 meters), and it has strong characteristics such as anti-tension and anti-torsion. Has excellent performance, more reliable and durable.
In addition, the patented design of the lug bridge is another major performance of this watch following the classics of the brand. And like the case, it is made of titanium, which has a good corrosion resistance and is about 40% lighter than stainless steel, showing the superiority of the material.
The hollowed out dial, although it looks very lightweight, has a variety of functions, including hours, minutes, small seconds, dual time with day and night display, six-day power reserve display, and the brand’s unique tourbillon device. ; Another small dial at three o’clock shows the day and night indicated by the hands of the central second time zone (two places).
The tourbillon is set above the small seconds at 9 o’clock, and the small indicator of the small seconds dial shows the operating status of the tourbillon. The design structure is different from the traditional tourbillon, which is patented by Panerai. In order to better compensate for the effect of gravity on the escapement operation and to ensure the accuracy of the watch’s travel time, the tourbillon frame is perpendicular to, rather than parallel to the horizontal axis of the balance wheel, rotating every 30 seconds. The speed runs one revolution, which is very different from the traditional tourbillon that rotates one revolution per minute.
The function panel at 3 o’clock shows the day and night indicated by the hands of the central second time zone (two places).
Arabic numerals, bar-shaped hour markers, central hands, second time zone (two places of time) hands, and two function disks are covered with luminous parts. Even in dark environments, the time on the disk can be read clearly, which is very convenient.
If the mechanical feel of the disc surface is not enough, then through the back through the back cover, you can also watch the P.2005 / T manual winding hollow mechanical movement style. The special power reserve display (144 hours) and the spring movement of the spring in the barrel and the precise operation of the gear can be seen at a glance. The movement is hollowed out and equipped with a lower density titanium bridge and plywood to replace the commonly used brass material, which is twice as dense as titanium, which further reduces the weight of the movement, making it lighter and superior.
The black leather strap is decorated with blue stitching and connected with a titanium pin buckle, making the watch easy and fast to wear.

Summary: The new complex watch can be said to be another masterpiece that combines classic design with modern technology. Not only highlights the unique sports style of luxury watches, but also complements the innovative technology used in watches, making the charm of machinery and time perfect again. In general, complex models with tourbillons are rare. If you are interested in this watch, you may wish to pay more attention to it. Watch price: RMB1,018,000
