Catalogue Note

With a Panerai certificate, instruction manual and a presentation box with outer packaging.

Panerai launched PAM350 - Lo Scienziato (The Scientist) to pay tribute to Galileo Galilei, one of the greatest Italian scientists in history.  During his life Galileo tackled several time-measurement problems which marked a turning point in horology and embarked on the modern era by demonstrating that the law of isochronism of small oscillations of the pendulum – the period of oscillation of pendulums of equal length is constant regardless of the amplitude of oscillation —could be applied to the measurement of time.  Founded in Florence, Italy, home of Galileo Galilei, Panerai shared the same core value of avant-garde and innovation with this most celebrated genius scientist. 

Panerai PAM 350 Radiomir Tourbillon GMT Ceramica, Lo Scienziato is the first skeletonized watch introduced by the brand which received immediate attention from media and collectors.  It is powered by the in-house Panerai P.2005/S caliber, which is a skeletonized version of the well-known P.2005 movement that sports an impressive number of features including a 30-second rotating tourbillon, a power reserve display and a second time zone indication. The three mainspring barrels store enough energy to power the watch for as long as 6 days without compromising its accuracy.  It is a true collector’s item for Panerai’s most loyal aficionadas.
