Officine Panerai hosted "Time + Space: A Look Back at the 'Clockwork Universe'"

Celebrating 400 years of Galileo’s discovery of Jupiter’s moons

In November 2, 2011 Italian high-end watchmaker Officine Panerai hosted "Time + Space: A Look Back at the 'Clockwork Universe'" at the Explorers Club in New York City to celebrate the 400th Anniversary of Galileo Galilei's discovery of the four moons of Jupiter.

The event was led by a panel discussion featuring the world's leading astronomers: Dr. Owen Gingerich, Dr. Anthony Aveni and Dr. Derrick Pitts. The panel discussed how Galileo's scientific contributions continue to impact modern day watchmaking. Frank Stalder, Director of Research and Development for Officine Panerai, brought the discussion to life with the presentation of  three exemplary Panerai timepieces inspired by and dedicated to the scientist - L'Astronomo, Lo Scienziato and Jupiterium.

L’Astonomo watch is a made-to-order-only timepiece, Panerai’s most complicated watch ever made, the PAM00365. This extremely complicated watch features a a grand complication, with tourbillon, equation of time, indication of sunrise and sunset times for the city chosen by the purchaser, and  depiction of the night sky of that city on a disk on the back plate.

The Lo Scienziato Radiomir Tourbillon GMT Ceramica is a 48 mm ceramic piece with a skeletonized movement made of a fine mesh, a limited edition of only 30 pieces ever made. While the Jupiterium is a mechanical instrument with a watch that shows time and has a manual-wound movement with a 40-day power reserve.
