Glashutte Original may just be the most underrated and unappreciated high end watch brand within the watch industry. I have been an admirer and wearer of their watches for over 15 years. Their quality, design and respect for the art of haute horology are second to none! Recently Glashutte Original released the NEW Senator Blue- Boutique Editions. These are new versions of two classics of its current collection: the Senator Perpetual Calendar and the Senator Panorama Date Moon Phase. They have polished stainless steel cases and dark blue alligator leather straps with steel fold-over clasps.
The new blue dials of the Senator Perpetual Calendar and the Senator Panorama Date Moon Phase are crafted in Glashütte Original’s own dial manufactory in Pforzheim, Germany. Up to 40 separate operations are required to produce the refined and carefully finished “faces” of the timepieces. The dial manufactory team’s extensive experience allowed them to develop the perfectly tuned, intense blue that gives the new models their unusual shade.
To achieve the desired hue one must exercise precise control over the entire galvanic coloring process, ensuring that the tension is at the correct level, that the dial is submerged in the bath for precisely the right length of time, and that the correct distance is maintained between the elements in the bath, among other requirements.
These watches will be available exclusively in Glashütte Original boutiques in Dresden, Paris, Geneva, Madrid, Dubai, Singapore, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Macau and Tokyo.
