The new Glashütte Original Senator Diary (refs. 100-13-01-01-04 & 100-13-02-02-04) features the traditional design of the recently resurrected German brand, as well as a lovely mechanical “alarm clock” complication that lets you set the alarm time for up to 31 days in the future.
In the Spring of 2010, Glashütte Original has introduced the then-new Senator Sixties Panorama Date (ref. 1-39-52-06-02-04) three-hander. Its main selling point? You are basically getting the original vintage-styled timepiece that now sports with their signature Panorama Date complication: a feature that looks your run off the mill “big date” look like a crude kid’s toy.
Delivered in a nicely sculpted honey-colored gold body, this new Glashuette Original Strasser & Rohde Regulator is equipped with a beautifully executed hand-wound mechanism that features a level of decor that we rarely see even in this price range. In fact, I can predict that the finely decorated mechanism with its different types of guilloche, blued screws and visible synthetic rubies will get almost as much “screen time” as the timekeeper’s silvered dial with its rare regulator-type display.
Unveiled at the beginning of the year in Basel, the Glashutte Original Senator Chronometer remains the most interesting model from the resurrected German brand. Featuring a timeless design with the traditional heat-blued hands looking especially gorgeous gliding over its silver dial, this may very well be a timekeeper of choice for those who think that a good old Breguet is just too obvious for a modern gentleman.
The recently unveiled Glashütte Original Senator Navigator Perpetual Calendar (ref. 100-07-07-05-04) self-winding wristwatch combines an in-house hand-made movement with an almost mind-numbing price tag. I mean, a recommended street price of €15,800 for a timekeeper in brushed stainless steel body is quite impressive even if it is equipped with a state of the art in-house movement, right?
