PANERAI at SIHH 2018
SIHH is the perfect time for brands to release new models allowing them to showcase new technologies and creations. This year Panerai did not disappoint.
Lo Scienziato Luminor 1950 Tourbillon GMT – PAM00767
3D Printing with Titanium – innovation and aesthetic beauty combine with this ultra light case and skeletonized dial
A new version of one of the most innovative creations of the Panerai Manufacture: Lo Scienziato with a 3D-printed Titanium case and the P.2005/T Skeletonised movement with Tourbillon regulator.
This new release features a 3D-printed titanium case, created using the technique of Direct Metal Laser Sintering.
The new Lo Scienziato is truly remarkable, in particular it is extremely light. Considering it has a GMT, AM/PM indicator, 6 day power reserve and tourbillon, in addition to the hours, minutes and small-seconds, this watch is light. This is not only achieved by the titanium case but also by the minimalisation on the case and movement.
Panerai is known for it’s big dials. However 2018 brings a twist, with their first 38mm in New Luminor Due Models
- (PAM00755 3 Days Automatic Acciaio in 38mm steel case and mint green leather strap)
- (PAM00756 3 Days Automatic Acciaio in 38mm red gold case and blue leather strap)
- (PAM00903 3 Days Automatic Acciaio in 38mm steel case and blue leather strap)
FU – Chinese Symbol of good luck, long life, happiness and prosperity
PAM00908 3 Days Automatic Acciaio in 38mm red gold case with the FU symbole on the back of the case. It is a symbol of universal importance, associated with the ancient traditions of Chinese culture, and it is widely used as a decoration because of its auspicious power and the beauty of its design. The symbol FU is surrounded by plum flowers, expressing resilience and perseverance, and peonies, symbolising wealth.

‘L’ASTRONOMO’ – Luminor 1950 Tourbillon Moon Phases Equation Of Time GMT Titanio – 50mm – PAM00920
L’Astronomo is the short name given to PAM00920, or “Luminor 1950 Tourbillon Moon Phases Equation Of Time GMT Titanio – 50mm” in full. This is an ultra-complicated, skeletal Panerai that is for the serious Paneristi fans out there. It is special not just because of it’s robust features but because it is also Panerai’s first model to offer moon phase indication.
