Effortless elegance in black and white from Glashütte Original
The new Senator Chronograph Panorama Date
It takes a certain kind of man to wear a watch as casually elegant as this new version of the Senator Chronograph Panorama Date: A true gentleman with a taste for quality and class, bold yet understated, knowing how to persuade and lead. These were the attributes the designers had in mind when developing the newest addition to the Senator Chronograph Panorama Date family. Glashütte Original now presents a new stainless steel version of the successful model with striking black and white contrasts.
Glashütte Original premiered its integrated chronograph movement Calibre 37 at Baselworld four years ago. With initial appearances in platinum and red gold, the new column wheel chronograph’s functional design, exquisite precision and reliable performance earned it immediate acclaim. The debut versions of the Senator Chronograph Panorama Date were followed in 2017 by a stainless steel model featuring a deep black dial and luminous blue Super-LumiNova highlights.
Black and white elegance for the man of taste
For Baselworld 2018, the Saxon manufactory presents a new stainless steel version of the Senator Chronograph Panorama Date, sure to catch the eye of style-conscious men and women with the high-contrast elegance of its contemporary design: A clear white dial sets off fascinating details presented in deep black. Distinctive by day, the black hour, minute and stop seconds hands, indexes and Roman numerals at hours 6 and 12 become luminous in the dark: Super-LumiNova highlights emit a glowing green light, permitting excellent legibility during night hours.
Handcrafted by the watchmaker’s experts in Pforzheim, the dial speaks the language of contemporary design, made for the man of refined tastes and effortless style. The design reprises the Senator line’s characteristic symmetry, with 30-minute and 12-hour counters complemented by a small seconds dial. The harmonious arrangement of the three chronograph displays is enhanced by the power reserve indicator placed within the small seconds dial. The pure and legible design is enhanced by Glashütte Original’s signature Panorama Date, positioned below the chronograph counter and small seconds triad. In this characteristic feature, the two numeric date discs are mounted at the same level, rendering a central separation bar superfluous and enabling the smooth and impressive display of the date.
The new version of the Senator Chronograph Panorama Date presents an alternately polished and satin-brushed 42 mm stainless steel case, enhancing the cool and sporty elegance of this latest addition to the Senator line. A selection of refined straps allows the owner to reveal yet another facet of his personal style: the brown calfskin model is sewn with off-white thread. A second strap in black rubber is adorned with a lightly textured, laser-cut decoration; both calfskin and rubber versions are available with fold-over clasp or traditional pin buckle closures. A third bracelet, fashioned in polished and satin-brushed stainless steel, is easily adjusted for optimal comfort using the patented, innovative closure, which offers eight separate settings across eight millimetres. A double security mechanism with two buttons on either side prevents accidental opening of the clasp.
Calibre 37: exceptionally robust and reliable
The heart of the Senator Chronograph Panorama Date is the Calibre 37-01 chronograph movement with flyback mechanism and 12-hour chronograph counter. The robust build of the column-wheel chronograph makes for exceptional reliability in day-to-day use. Easy to operate, its excellent rate performance guarantees remarkable precision. With a power reserve of 70 hours, this automatic movement is an exemplary addition to a series of outstanding chronographs from Glashütte Original. Like the man who wears it, self-assured and stylish in every respect.
