Luxury timepiece brand Panerai is paying tribute to Tuscan scientist Galileo Galilei with its Lo Scienziato Luminor 150 Tourbillon GMT Titanio. With a transparent watch face that fits the mold of the most popular style in watches right now, this exuberant watch is stylish and functional.

Galileo Galilei is historically remembered as the genius who discovered that the Earth rotates around the sun, as opposed to the other way around. Honoring him and all his great work, Panerai's 150 Tourbillon watch is absent of a traditional dial and instead allows wearers to witness the fascinating details on both sides of the watch through a transparent watch face. Being see-through on both sides, winding and unwinding of the springs can be viewed by almost anyone.

Limited to 150 pieces, the Lo Scienziato watch is the perfect tribute for the man whose discoveries laid the foundations for the production of mechanical watches.
