The unique 3-D-printed case of the Lo Scienziato was achieved with the help of direct metal laser sintering (DMLS), which creates three-dimensional layers of powdered titanium through a fiber optic laser. The layers, each of which is only .02 mm thick, gradually merge to become completely solid and create a uniform surface appearance.
The DMLS technique reduces the weight of the titanium case, making it lighter than any similar titanium case made using traditional methods. This makes for an extremely light yet rigid structure with minimal fabrication waste and only a minor need for secondary operations. The overall weight of Lo Scienziato's movement is 35 percent less than that the P.2005/S skeletonized version. The ultimate lightness of the watch is the result of fine skeletonizing of the bridges, plates, spring barrels and the bare dial.
