To mark the International Day of the Kiss on July 6, 2018, Glashütte Original presented a new PanoMatic Luna limited special edition watch for women. Studded with diamonds and rubies, the PanoMatic Luna proudly wears the colour of love, permitting this mechanical ladies’ watch to give its classic moon phase display a new, exceptionally enticing appearance.
The dial of the new PanoMatic Luna unites two romantic elements in an elegant composition. On the white mother-of-pearl dial, the softly curved moon in relief and the silver-coloured, starry night sky reveal a poetry all their own. At 2 o’clock, one finds the vaulted opening of the moon phase display, achieved through an equally artistic creative process. The curve of the moon is the product of great manual skill and attentive diamond milling in the watchmaker’s own dial manufactory in Pforzheim, Germany.
This spectacle of the changing crescent moon is complemented by 18 ruby indexes, which offer luminous red reflections on the opposite side of the dial, and serve as a frame for the off-centre hour and minute display. They are positioned together with the small seconds – in classic Pano style – along a vertical axis in the left half of the dial, while the moon phase display and characteristic Glashütte Original Panorama Date adorn the right side.
The bezel on the new PanoMatic Luna is set with 64 brillant-cut diamonds – 0.95 carats in all. They form a glamorous frame for the round, 39.4 mm stainless steel case, whose crown is adorned on the right side by a ruby. Sapphire crystal, antireflective on both sides, assures optimal views from the dial side. The watch is held in place on the wrist by a radiant red Louisiana alligator leather strap, which together with a refined pin buckle ensures a secure and stylish fit.
Ticking within the PanoMatic Luna is the manufactory’s own Calibre 90-12 automatic movement, which can be admired through the sapphire crystal case back. The latter opens up the view to the refined decorations in the heart of the watch, and to the coveted duplex swan-neck fine adjustment from Glashütte Original. A great many other traditional elements of Glashütte watchmaking offer irrefutable proof of the origin of the watch, among them the three-quarter plate, blued screws and characteristic Glashütte decorative finishes.
The new PanoMatic Luna is limited to 50 pieces and enhances the existing collection model with a white, blue or brown strap.
