  • Catalogue Essay

    Paying its homage to the great Galileo Galilei, one of the most important scientists of all time, Panerai launched the Lo Scienziato series in 2010. With an innovative approach to creating these timepieces, the manufacturer displayed their artisanal craftsmanship via a complex skeletonized in-house cal. P.2005. Featuring a double barrel, the movement boasts a power reserve of up to 6 days with an asymmetrically positioned rotating tourbillon in between 10 and 11 O’clock. Encased in a large 48mm titanium case, one would still expect some heft to the watch as the movement consists many more parts than a regular chronometer. With that said, the cal.P.2005/T is the firm’s first movement with brides made entirely of titanium weighing an impressive 35% less than the regular skeletonized version cal.P.2005/S.

    The present example encased in titanium is numbered 52 out of a limited edition of 150 pieces and presented in excellent overall condition with the full set of accessories.

    Italian • 1860

    Known for its robust designs and large case sizes, Officine Panerai was established in 1860 by Giovanni Panerai in Florence, Italy. Around 1900, Giovanni's grandson Guido Panerai took over, and Panerai became the supplier to the Regia Marina — the Royal Italian Navy. After supplying the navy with high-precision instruments for a number of years, Officine Panerai created Radiomir, a radium-based powder that gives luminosity to the dials of sighting instruments and devices. By 1936, the Royal Italian Navy approached Panerai again with the request to design a watch resistant to extreme underwater conditions. The watch they created became known as the "Radiomir".

    Panerai's watches made during the early twentieth century era were comprised of cases designed and manufactured by Rolex SA, with Cortébert, a Swiss manufacturer, supplying the majority of their movements. The most recognizable designs from the firm are the Radiomir and Luminor. To date, vintage models from the first half of the 1900s, such as the reference 3646 and 6152 models, remain the most desirable among collectors.
