Glory From Glashütte

Plaza Watch International - - The Best of Baselworld 2014 -

With the tongue-twist­ing model Se­na­tor Man­ual Wind­ing Skele­tonized Edi­tion, The Saxons based in Glashütte out­side Dres­den are go­ing back to their roots. No co­in­ci­dence that the vil­lage that built a rep­u­ta­tion for skele­tonised watches was a cen­tre for the best Ger­man watch­mak­ing in the 20th cen­tury. The ex­trav­a­gant new model Se­na­tor Man­ual Wind­ing Skel­tonized Edi­tion is a master­piece which fea­tures the firm’s own Cal­i­bre 49-18, with in­tri­cate me­chan­ics, en­grav­ings and cap­ti­vat­ing de­tails. It’s pre­sented in a stylish, pol­ished red gold case, 42 mm in di­am­e­ter, which frames the skele­tonized man­ual wind­ing move­ment. The model also fea­tures a 40 hour power re­serve. The gal­va­nized sil­ver, skele­tonized dial is dec­o­ra­tively en­hanced by a black rail­road minute ring and drawn Ro­man nu­mer­als. Del­i­cate blued hour and minute hands in­di­cate the time of day.
