The Officine Panerai L’Astronomo Luminor 1950 Tourbillon Moon Phases Equation of Time GMT – 50MM (phew!) is the first watch from Panerai to have moon phases indication, along with a new system using polarised crystals to indicate the date. Like its predecessors, the new L’Astronomo Moon Phases is made to order with the Skeletonised movement (visible below) carefully calibrated to each clients chosen location. The moon phases indicator always relates to the sky above this chosen location, taking into account the difference between the northern and southern hemispheres. The Sunrise and Sunset indicators, like the moon phases indicator, are set according to the owners home time so even when traveling these indicators continue to show the conditions in the chosen city – indicated the GMT hand.

The new L’Astronomo Moon Phases is made to order and case material, color of the hands, the engraving, the strap and several other features can be personalized upon request. Visit www.panerai.com for details.
