Both watches are at first sight not new, but some changes have been made to the existing models. Let us together reveal the secrets …
Glashütte Original Senator Panorama Date (in-house caliber “100-03”):
The bezel has been cut back to make room for a lacquered silver-grain dial whose finely textured surface forms a sumptuous backdrop for deep black Roman numerals and a classic black railroad chapter ring. The panorama date display is presented in black on an ivory ground matching the color of the dial, and new blued-steel “poire” shaped hands enhance the elegance of the new design. The previous versions used a button at 8 o’clock to reset the second hand to zero; the new version replaces the button with a corrector inset in the case.
Glashütte Original Senator Panorama Date Moon Phase (in-house caliber “100-04”):
The watch comes with a new moon phase display: a polished tiny silver moon moves gently on a deep blue disk representing the sky.
Both Glashütte Original in-house calibers “100-03” and “100-04” offer a 55 hours power reserve. They can be admired through a sapphire crystal set in the case back, the calibers feature a screw balance with 18 weighted gold-coated screws, twin spring barrels, swan-neck fine adjustment, skeletonized rotor with 21-carat oscillating weight, and the exquisite finishing characteristics of the Saxon manufactory. The new timepieces are presented in a 40 mm case both polished and brushed surfaces, either in red gold or stainless steel version, and the matt black Louisiana alligator bracelet attaches the watch perfectly to the wearer’s wrist. Depending on the case material, the fold-over clasp is made of red gold or stainless steel.
Glashütte Original makes some outstanding watches and these are no exception. I am not sure about other readers but the red gold is very nice.
