Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar - Limited Edition

This 100-piece limited edition with skeletonized dial lends the classic perpetual calendar a contemporary appearance.

The latest addition to the Senator Excellence family reveals the beauty and refined character of the movement to its full extent. From the moment it was launched in 2016, the innovative Calibre 36 set new standards in terms of precision, stability, running time and beauty. The new special edition takes up this central theme. 

Skeletonizing has long been a fixture of the repertoire of a master watchmaker. Now Glashütte Original has made use of this technique to implement a fresh, modern design. Finely cut out from within the generous dimensions of the matte grey dial ring are the Panorama Date, moon phase, weekday, month and leap year displays, each accented discreetly with a stepped frame.

The central cut-out shifts the centre of attention to the technical aspects of the galvanic grey module cover plate, whose openings reveal the interplay of the calendar discs. An elaborate guilloche decoration, crafted by hand in the watchmaker's own dial manufactory in Pforzheim, adorns the movement's cover plate.

A contemporary presentation of classic complications

Thanks to its sophisticated mechanism the perpetual calendar displays, along with hours, minutes and seconds, the day of the week, month, moon phase and leap year – all the while taking the lengths of the different months into account. In theory, at least, no manual correction will be required until the year 2100. Two characteristic  complications have been added, the Panorama Date and the exquisitely crafted moon phase. The Panorama Date presents its large-format numerals on the same plane and without a vertical separation bar, while silver stars are set off against the moon phase display's dark blue night sky.

A modern composition in blue and grey

In terms of colour, too, the Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar - Limited Edition is anchored firmly in the 21st century. Set within a 42 mm white gold case, the matte grey dial ring with rhodium plated and polished index appliques and the galvanic grey module cover encounter blue accents. Among the latter are the dark blue Louisiana alligator leather strap, traditional blued hands, the moon phase display's galvanic blue night sky, along with the printed blue minute numerals on the railroad chapter ring, and the leap year indicator. Through the sapphire crystal on the back of the watch, one can observe the finely finished 36-02 automatic movement, which features a power reserve of at least 100 hours.
