Glashütte Original - Two timepieces for the wintertime

Glashütte Original Two timepieces for the wintertime

When nature sinks into snow-white silence, winter has arrived. Two timepieces from Glashütte Original participate in the magic of this cold time of year.

With cool elegance and traditions of the German art of watchmaking, the Senator Cosmopolite, in stainless steel, and the PanoMatic Luna cast a spell on their admirers. 

The Senator Cosmopolite

The timepiece represents precision, whether leading its wearer home to a crackling fire, or to sun-splashed lands far away. Its mechanics display the time of day in two time zones at once – taking Standard and Daylight Saving Time into account – in any of the world time zones currently in use. At its heart is the manufactory’s 89-02 automatic movement, a 4-Hz timepiece assembled by hand from more than 400 individual components, with an off-centre rotor and a 72-hour power reserve.

This year’s new stainless steel model with dark blue Louisiana alligator leather strap is the latest version to join the Senator Cosmopolite line, which debuted in 2015. Executed in the characteristic style of Glashütte Original, the clear design is reduced to its most essential elements. 

Wintry colours – dark blue and white with detail accents in black – determine the overall look of the watch. An auxiliary dial framed in silver at 12 o’clock presents the home time and integrated power reserve. The characteristic Glashütte Original Panorama Date is at 4 o’clock, while two narrow windows at 8 o’clock are set within the curve of the dial.

They use IATA international airport codes in three colours to indicate the traveller’s destination. The 24 time zones that deviate from GMT by a full hour are each represented by an IATA code in black; an additional 8 with half-hour deviations present codes in blue, and the remaining three, each with a three-quarter hour offset from GMT, show an IATA code in red. Positioned at 9 o’clock is the newly designed day/night display with a small sun and starry night sky. 

The sparkling PanoMatic Luna

Details are also the source of the PanoMatic Luna’s fascination. Its refined mother- of-pearl dial recalls a frozen lake mirroring the clear winter sky. The shimmering face of the watch is the product of hand-crafting in Glashütte Original’s own in- house dial manufactory in Pforzheim, Germany. The Panorama Date at 4 o’clock and the moon phase at 2 o’clock, in which a diamond-cut silvery moon and stars shine from the night sky, also reveal the hand of the artist. The big date, although a characteristic feature of Glashütte Original, remains a rarity in a mechanical ladies’ watch.

83 diamonds totalling 1.09 carats lend the PanoMatic Luna the brilliance of ice crystals in the winter sun. Precisely 64 white brillant-cut diamonds adorn the finely polished, 39.4-mm stainless steel case. An additional 18 brillant-cut diamonds on the dial’s rod indexes take up this brilliance in an elegant fashion. The ensemble is topped off by a large, 3 mm brilliant-cut diamond on the winding crown. A light blue Louisiana alligator leather strap with pin buckle echoes the blue of the dial and rounds off the timepiece, which features the manufactory’s 90-12 automatic movement.
