The P.2005/GLS (standing for Galileo Luna Scheletrato) is the skeletonised movement of the L’Astronomo - Luminor 1950 Tourbillon Moon Phases Equation of Time GMT. It's personalized to operate in accordance with the geographical coordinates of a place chosen by the owner. It provides the same range of functions as the first L’Astronomo, presented in 2010 on the occasion of the 400th anniversary of the celestial observations made by Galileo as a result of the invention of the telescope. This was the first timepiece created by Panerai with a tourbillon regulator, calendar, equation of time indication and the display of the times of sunrise and sunset and two other innovations: indication of the phases of the moon and an original system for displaying the date using polarized crystals. On the back of L’Astronomo’s P.2005/GLS movement is a day/night indicator which clearly displays the phases of the moon, by means of a system consisting of two superimposed discs which rotate in combination. The upper disc – which is read by a small external index fixed onto the movement – displays the 24 hours of the day, showing the sun during the hours of daylight and the stars of the sky at night.
