Fine Print

Bespoke - - EMPEROR 1688 -

Pan­erai’s 2016 halo model is the Lo Scien­zi­ato, which is Ital­ian for The Sci­en­tist. It’s ba­si­cally a 156,500 USD skele­tonised ti­ta­nium Lu­mi­nor 1950 Tour­bil­lon GMT made us­ing di­rect metal laser sin­ter­ing, which is a cut­tingedge form of 3D print­ing. This is the first time 3D print­ing has been used by a watch brand, and the com­pany says the ben­e­fits were not just the abil­ity to cre­ate hol­lowed sec­tions and thus a lighter and stronger end-prod­uct, there was also much less wastage of ma­te­ri­als. In essence, this watch rep­re­sents a gi­ant leap in terms of pro­duc­tion tech­nol­ogy.
