With the introducton of the Lo Scienziato Radiomir Tourbillon GMT, Panerai has yet another grand complication under its belt, and this time its a skeleton watch. Having just introduced the brands first tourbillon movements only two years ago, the release of this watch is no small feat for the luxury watch brand. Who in comparison to many of its competitors is still a relatively young company. The Lo Scienziato Radiomir Tourbillon GMT is not just a technically impressive watch, from a design standpoint I believe Panerai has crossed yet another bridge in the furthering of the brand by creating quite an elegant piece.
Perhaps they will succeed in gaining a few new followers who might not have considering purchasing a Panerai before. Powered by the hand-wound mechanical movement Panerai P.2005/S calibre, a movement produced entirely by Panerai. The movement is just 10.05 milimeters thick and contains 31 jewels, 277 components in all. The movement allows for a power reserve of up to 6 days. While many skeleton watches display just hours and minute, the Lo Scienziato also displays small seconds, a second time zone, 24th indicator, power reserve indicator and tourbillon. All without seeming to clutter the design of the watch.
The case of the watch is 48 milimeters in diameter and produced in black ceramic with removable wire loop strap attachments in steel. The screw-down winding crown is made from ceramic personalized OP. Each side of the watch is protected by see-through scratch resistant sapphire crystal treated with a double anti-reflective coating. The watch is completed by a PANERAI personalized leather strap with an adjustable steel buckle that has been treated with a special hard black coating. The Panerai Lo Scienziato Radiomir Tourbillon GMT is water resistant up to 100 meters.
