Panerai Lo Scienziato Luminor 1950 Tourbillon GMT Titanio is Printed Perfection

While it might not be getting as much attention as drones, 3D printing is another technology that’s transforming the world around us. And one place it’s showing up is in the construction of high-end watches such as the new Panerai Lo Scienziato Luminor 1950 Tourbillon GMT Titanio. Using a process called direct metal laser sintering, Panerai “prints” the watch’s 47mm case out of titanium, creating a part that’s allegedly 40% lighter than an equivalent steel piece. Further mass reduction is achieved by the skeletal design, which also allows for easy viewing of the caliber P.2005/T and other inner workings as they do their things. Of course, with a retail price of roughly $155,000, there are less pricey entertainment options out there…
