Cer­ti­fied dis­tinc­tion

Glashütte orig­i­nal un­veils the lat­est edi­tion of its Se­na­tor Chronome­ter

Virtuozity - - Watch News -

WITH THE most re­cent edi­tion of its Se­na­tor Chronome­ter, the Glashütte orig­i­nal man­u­fac­tory hopes to of­fer cer­ti­fied pre­ci­sion in a dis­tinc­tive and ex­pres­sive dark blue ver­sion.

The Se­na­tor Chronome­ter has been of­fi­cially cer­ti­fied as a chronome­ter by the Ger­man Cal­i­bra­tion Ser­vice. The colour blue, mean­while, is in­sep­a­ra­bly bound up with the Glashütte orig­i­nal col­lec­tion. For more than 20 years the brand has pre­sented, again and again, ex­clu­sive time­pieces in vi­brant shades of blue, thus adding a mod­ern, el­e­gant nu­ance to the watch­maker’s clas­sic colour palette.

The lac­quer is ap­plied and dried in sev­eral coats un­til the pre­cise shade and tex­ture de­sired are achieved. The same care is taken with all el­e­ments of the elab­o­rate dial, as can be seen in the rail­road chap­ter ring, the in­dexes and nu­mer­als, which are finely en­graved and gal­vanised in sil­ver.

Long, slim poire hands are pol­ished in white gold.they glide along their paths above the power re­serve and small sec­onds dis­plays, which are turned deeply into the dial.

The dial is in­spired by the fa­mous marine chronome­ters of the past. in 2016 the Se­na­tor Chronome­ter ap­pears in a newly de­signed white gold case with the Se­na­tor line’s slim bezel, which al­lows the dial to dis­play its full splen­dour. This en­sures not only gen­er­ous views but makes it eas­ier to read the dif­fer­ent dis­plays: the small sec­onds at 6 o’clock, for ex­am­ple, or the power re­serve dis­play at 12 o’clock.

The Se­na­tor Chronome­ter also presents the char­ac­ter­is­tic, colour-matched Glashütte orig­i­nal Panorama Date at 3 o’clock, along with a sep­a­rate day-night dis­play that sim­pli­fies set­ting of the date and is po­si­tioned in a round open­ing above the cen­tre: from 6 in the morn­ing un­til 6 in the evening the small cir­cle ap­pears in white, from 6 in the evening on, in black. A mid­night blue Louisiana al­li­ga­tor leather strap with a white gold foldover clasp rounds out the elab­o­rate form of the new chronome­ter.
