The Senator line has been a pillar of the collection since its introduction in 1997. Today's models are as exquisite and elegant as their predecessors, yet clearly more contemporary, and the flagship of the line remains the Senator Perpetual Calendar.
Made by hand in the manufactory in Glashütte, the Perpetual Calendar testifies to the on-going quest for the perfect union of mechanical complications and art. At last year's fair in Basel the Saxon manufactory presented a beautiful version of this exquisite mechanical timepiece, encased in red gold with a matt black dial. This year's fair brings the introduction of three variations on this sophisticated model: in red gold with a silver dial, or in stainless steel with either a warm silver or a matt black dial.
All Senator Perpetual Calendar displays are arranged to form a clear, harmonious balance, and are easily read through the antireflective sapphire crystal. The day, month and compelling Glashütte Original Panorama Date display shows either white or black numerals against the ground. On the black dial versions, the phases of the moon are revealed by a black disk adorned with silver stars and a radiant silver moon, while the timekeepers outfitted with a warm silver dial show a silver moon on a blue disk.
A discreet, unambiguous leap year display presents a red dot to indicate a leap year, followed by yellow, black and white dots for successive years. The heart of the Senator Perpetual Calendar, easily visible through the sapphire glass mounted in the case back, is the Glashütte Original Caliber 100-02, a superb 28,800 vph automatic movement featuring a screw balance with 18 weighted golden screws and a power reserve of more than 55 hours (+/- 10%).
Its reset mechanism allows easy synchronization of the second hand with a time standard. Unlike other reset mechanisms, the second hand is connected neither to the winding stem nor the crown.
As a result, when the crown is pulled out, the balance remains in oscillation and the movement continues to run, significantly reducing material stress. Pressing a separate button on the side of the case at 8 o'clock activates the reset mechanism. The rotor winds in both directions, providing constant power to the movement.
Exquisitely finished components enhance the artistry of the movement's design: the signature Glashütte three-quarter plate with Glashütte ribbing, skeletonized rotor with 21-ct gold oscillation weight, twin spring barrels and swan-neck fine adjustment. Black Louisiana alligator or black rubber bracelets, both with foldover clasps in either red gold or stainless steel, complement the Senator Perpetual Calendar's elegant and compelling aesthetics.
