Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Collection – Senator Excellence Panorama Date and Senator Excellence Panorama Date Moon Phase – New Models in Blue, Silver Grey and White Dials

The German watchmaker Glashütte Original has given its Senator Excellence Panorama Date and Senator Excellence Panorama Date Moon Phase timepieces a new look, lending the successful Senator Excellence line the distinctive cachet of modern design.

Following the debut of initial versions in a classic style, the watches are now available in blue, silver grey and white, mounted in slightly bigger 42 mm stainless steel cases. With this contemporary, elegant design the brand extends its successful Senator Excellence line, which is based on the award-winning Calibre 36 automatic movement.

The new models underscore once again the Saxon watchmaker’s exceptional dial competencies. After all, each colourful new face is the product of an elaborate galvanisation and finishing process performed in Glashütte Original’s in-house dial manufactory in Pforzheim.

The galvanic blue dial features a refined sunray decoration, the galvanic silver-grey dial is enhanced by a delicate vertically brushed finish and the smooth matte surface of the lacquered white dial version makes a splendid impression.

In Pforzheim, superb craft skill and dedication to detail also guide the integration of the moon phase and Glashütte Original Panorama Date in the dial. And last, but not least, the Pforzheim experts mount the characteristic appliques, contributing in the process to the lasting impression made by this watch – despite having been stripped down to pure essentials. Striking white gold indexes and colour-matched, clear and dynamic sword shaped hour and minute hands complete the harmonious appearance of the new timepieces, forming an elegant unity.

The Calibre 36 – here in versions 36-03 with the Panorama Date and 36-04 with the Panorama Date and moon phase – has already made a name for itself as the epitome of excellence in watchmaking. Introduced in 2016, the manufactory made movement, reduced to the essentials, forms the heart of the entire line.

The Calibre 36 has set new standards with respect to ease of use, particularly evident in these characteristic Glashütte Original complications. Both the Glashütte Original Panorama Date and the moon phase are set using the crown, which makes an additional corrector on the case unnecessary.

Like all other Senator Excellence models, these most recent versions guarantee an exceptional standard of quality. Every single one of these watches bears a special engraving in the form of a “Q” on the case back, to be read as a promise. Together with an individual examination certificate, the Q guarantees the owner that his watch meets the highest standards with respect to stability, running time, precision and aesthetics, and that it has been thoroughly tested over the course of 24 days – under conditions even more demanding than those governing German chronometer certification testing.
