    Glashütte Original just went all funky (new dials for the 39mm Sixties)

    Wow, GO just added a lot of unusual colors to their Senator Sixties line. I gotta say I like the bold step. What are your thoughts?

    Here's the article and some pics from it:

    Interesting, though I generally like more conservative looks in my watches. I'm intrigued by the blue one though.

    Very interesting, though my first thought was "Seiko 5" (obviously just from a looks point of view).

    I like it, and like to see dials like this on higher scale watches.

    Wow, that stamped dial on the brown and the grey are really striking.

    The only thing I could find that bothers me are the names - these are Sixties watches and the colors should be named appropriately, after the appliances that inspired them!

    Aqua should be Turquoise
    Brown was called was brown (OK, really nothing was brown back then)
    Green should be Avocado
    Red should be Harvest Gold
    Gray should be Charcoal Gray

    I like myself best the red one because it is a very unusual color. I really like it when established brands sometimes take a bold approach. It is refreshing compared to the usual black/white/blue/silver offerings. A welcome splash of color.

    The teal one is super sharp.

    I quite like those. I'm not sure I'd personally wear all of them, but even the ones that aren't my style are quite pretty. The smart color-matching on the straps is a nice touch.

    These must have went over very well in the High net Worth Asian focus group
