If you haven't figured it out already, the name of Panerai's first-ever moonphase watch says it all - except for the complexity of building it. The L'Astronomo Luminor 1950 Tourbillon Moon Phases Equation of Time GMT watch will be built on a made-to-order basis, allowing its master watchmakers to personalize the geographic coordinates selected by the buyer. The watch pays homage to Galileo's astronomical studies, is crafted of brushed titanium with a sapphire caseback, has a moonphase indication and an innovative, patent-pending system indicating the date that uses polarized crystals. Even though each date is inscribed in the crystal, the numbers are virtually invisible except when aligned with the date window. The watch can be customized upon ordering, with a choice of case metals, finish, hand colors, Super-LumiNova color and whichever geographic coordinates are closest to your heart, allowing you to take a piece of home with you.

Founded in Florence, Panerai was not only a workshop, but also the city's first watchmaking school, helping to perfect and keep the craft alive under one roof. Equated with high quality, the brand supplied precision instruments such as naval combat sights and a radium-based powder that it developed to make the dials of instruments brighter. Panerai's Luminor collection continues to be a popular timepiece that remains radiant through its luminous Arabic numerals and polished steel casing.The brand's close ties with the navy also instigated the creation of the renowned instrument we know today as the Radomir watch, a high functioning timepiece that features manual mechanical movement, wire lungs and is water resistant. To date, Panerai has continued to support nautical activity, partnering with UNESCO's Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission last year to help promote the sustainable development of ocean sciences. This collaboration yielded The Submersible eLab-ID, a concept watch with the highest percentage of recycle-based material ever.
