The Lo Scien­zi­ato col­lec­tion, ded­i­cated to Galileo Galilei, is now en­hanced by a new tech­ni­cally re­mark­able edi­tion. The P.2005 me­chan­i­cal cal­i­bre with tour­bil­lon reg­u­la­tor is skele­tonised and, for the first time, made of ti­ta­nium. It is re­mark­ably light con­sid­er­ing its fea­tures: hours, min­utes, small sec­onds, GMT with am/pm in­di­ca­tion, a power re­serve of six days and a tour­bil­lon es­cape­ment. The se­cret lies in the min­i­mal­i­sa­tion on the case and move­ment. Us­ing Di­rect Me­tal Laser Sin­ter­ing, watch­mak­ers build up a 3D ob­ject layer by layer by means of a fi­bre op­tic laser us­ing pow­dered ti­ta­nium. The lay­ers, each 0.02mm thick, merge to­gether and be­come solid, cre­at­ing forms which would be im­pos­si­ble to achieve us­ing tra­di­tional meth­ods.
