  • Catalogue Essay

    In homage to Galileo Galilei, the renowned Italian scientist and godfather of modern science, Panerai conceived the "Lo Scienziato" collection. Galilei's revolutionary discoveries in physics, astronomy, mathematics and engineering were matched only by his ingenuity in conquering the quandaries of timekeeping. His technique of employing Jupiter's moons as a celestial clock to calculate longitude at sea remains an astonishing innovation.

    To honor this legacy, in 2010 Panerai unveiled the "Lo Scienziato" models, available in Radiomir and Luminor models. The inaugural limited edition flaunting the novel in-house cal. P.2005/S was the Radiomir Tourbillon GMT Ceramica. This stately timepiece, graced with a black ceramic case, was limited to 150 examples.

    The present model, numbered 61, exhibits a captivating semi-skeletonized dial. A triple barrel guarantees a remarkable 6-day power reserve, while a rotating tourbillon occupies the 10 and 11 o'clock positions. An additional hand indicates a second time zone, with a day/night marker at 3 o'clock. Subtle small seconds reside at 9 o'clock, and the rear caseback features a power reserve indicator.

    Offered in excellent overall condition and complete with accessories, this exquisite Panerai treasure pays rightful homage to an extraordinarily ingenious pioneer of science.

  • Artist Biography


    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.
