Glashütte Original PanoLunarTourbillon Limited Edition

Limited to 25 pieces, the PanoLunarTourbillon features a Platinum case housing a flying tourbillon movement and a hand-engraved dial with skeletonized hands. This new haute horlogerie masterpiece combines the highest levels of craftsmanship, technical sophistication and exceptional beauty in an unmistakable design.

The PanoLunarTourbillon is a new edition of its predecessor model from 2013 and a true work of art.

Elaborate engravings adorn the galvanic silver surface of the dial and the back of the movement. These filigree decorations bear witness to the rich traditions of Glashütte watchmaking, lending each watch its uniquely individual character.

The lavishly decorated dial with the characteristic off centre displays is framed by a case in platinum. Both the auxiliary dial for hours and minutes and the Flying Tourbillon with the small second are positioned on the left side of the dial.

An exquisite moon phase display with blue night sky and the watchmaker’s signature Panorama Date grace the right side.

The skeletonized hour and minute hands, indexes and the blued steel tip of the seconds hand provide accents in blue. All engravings on the dial side are executed in Glashütte Original’s own dial manufactory in Pforzheim.

The Flying Tourbillon oscillates, lightly and gracefully, on the left side of the dial. As fascinating as it is to watch, the complication was originally designed to improve precision. With this “whirlwind“, the entire oscillation and escapement system revolves on its own axis within a minute. This served to counter the effect of gravity on the rate precision of the era’s pocket watches.

The PanoLunarTourbillon is powered by the automatic movement Calibre 93-12. The timepiece has a power reserve of 48 hours and a fully integrated moon phase mechanism. The oscillating system with 10 weighted screws and 8 regulation screws ensures optimal rate precision.

Characteristic features of the Glashütte art of watchmaking, such as sunburst finish, blued screws as well as beveled and polished edges, reveal their beauty through the sapphire crystal case back.

The off-centre, skeletonized rotor has an oscillating mass in 21-carat gold. On a screw-mounted decorative stainless steel plaque, one finds the words “Flying Tourbillon” engraved and lined with gold.

The new timepiece is fitted with a blue Louisiana alligator leather strap with fold fastener in platinum.
