    Pre-Basel 2015: Glashütte Original PanomaticLunar and PanoReserve

    For Baselworld 2015 two new versions of the PanoReserve and PanoMaticLunar make their debut at the same time. The two timepieces from the successful Pano Collection are now available in red gold versions with a matt black dial, and in polished/satin brushed stainless steel editions with a dark blue dial.


    The exceptionally beautiful and characteristic dials of the PanoMaticLunar and PanoReserve are made in Glashütte Original's own dial manufactory in Pforzheim. In Pforzheim, the city of gold and jewellery, Glashütte Original draws on deep specialist knowledge and long-established traditions in dial-making, thus ensuring that every Glashütte Original watch receives its own dignified and unmistakable “face”.

    The two Pano models from Glashütte Original give prominence to the clear, pure design with its off-centre placement of hour and minute hands and small seconds display. This is evident from a first glance at the PanoMaticLunar models, which present the characteristic off-centre displays in a well thought out spatial arrangement. The areas for hour/minute indicators and the small seconds display lie on a vertical axis within the left half of the dial, while the Panorama Date and the splendid moon phase display are positioned at the lower and upper right, respectively. The placement of the individual displays was inspired by the “Golden Ratio” – the legendary law of aesthetic harmony.

    In 2015 two different variations of the PanoMaticLunar are presented in nuanced new shades; of foremost interest is the red gold edition which features a dial in a matt black tone, hour, minute and second hands in gold as well as 9 gold hour indexes. The exquisite moon phase display presents stars and a golden moon set against a silver sky.

    The PanoMaticLunar models are driven by the Saxon manufactory's Calibre 90-02 – a mechanical automatic movement with 47 jewels and a 42-hour power reserve. The sapphire crystal case back offers an unobstructed view into the refined beauty of the movement and its characteristic Glashütte elements including the three-quarter plate with Glashütte stripe finish, the off-centre rotor with oscillating weight in 21-ct gold, blued screws and the hand-engraved balance cock with duplex swan-neck fine adjustment.

    The stainless steel version presents the characteristic dial visuals in a striking and intense shade of blue – the galvanised dial features silver indexes applied by hand and white gold hands indicating hour, minutes and small seconds. The Panorama Date shows white numerals on a blue ground, while the phases of the moon are shown with a silver moon and stars in a silver night sky.

    The red gold version of the PanoReserve presents a dial in a matt black tone with hands and applied hour indexes in gold on the hour and minute display, the Panorama Date in black on white and a power reserve indicator (Auf/Ab) with a gold hand. The second version in stainless steel features a galvanised blue dial with hands in white gold, applied hour indexes and an impressive Panorama Date in white on blue below the power reserve. In the interest of improved legibility in the dark, all versions feature luminous highlights on the hour and minute hands.

    The heart of the PanoReserve is the manual winding Calibre 65-01 with 42 hour power reserve and 48 jewels. The sapphire crystal case back offers a clear view of the characteristic Glashütte Original duplex swan-neck fine adjustment and other traditional elements of the art of watchmaking in Glashütte: the Glashütte three-quarter plate with Glashütte stripe finish, the hand-engraved balance cock, the screw balance, screwmounted gold chatons and blued screws.

    Also mentioned somewhere else. Really love the blue colour. Still can't stand the stupid text on the dial. Don't need to be reminded that I'm looking at a Panorama data, moon phase or power reserve. Without the text it would be a lot better. Of course the movements are really gorgeous.

    I'd like to see some real world photos of the blue dial. I like both of these watches and it is nice to see another dial color. What I would really like to see, however, is a handwinding version of the Senator Sixties in steel... If they do that, they would have my attention...

    I will be happy to oblige with hands on pictures of the blue PML during Baselworld. I will also ask about any plans around 60's hand wound. So far GO focus has been around developing the chronograph movement and making some cosmetic changes to PML.
