Introduced in 2007, the Sixties Panorama Date takes its inspiration from the 1960s, the 20th century’s most exciting decade to life. This collection, among others, is to be seen at the exclusive Golden Bear Lounge by Glashütte Original, located on the 1st Floor of the Grand Hyatt Berlin during the 67th edition of the Berlin International Film Festival. For the 1st time of their 6 years partnership, the German watchmaker is the Festival Principal Partner.
The initial limited edition Senator Moon Phase Skeletonized Edition view came in 18k rose gold. The brand new regular production model one, on the other hand, comes in an 18k white gold case. If you like your watches to look more discreet, then the white gold situation is a blessing. One thing to notice is that the whole case is mirror-polished, and that means two things: 1) it glimmers and glows like mad under direct light and two) for clumsier owners, the opinion is a scrape magnet.Between the moon stage sub-dial at 10 o ‘clock, cone shaped power reserve indicator at 2 o’clock, moments sub-dial at 6 o’clock, and the decorated movement components, the dial could veer on appearing almost chaotic but also the cohesive implementation succeeds. It is a wonderfully elaborate design done in a distinctly Glashütte way.Case dimensions remain the same in 42mm in diameter and 11.2millimeters in height. It sounds modest, but the watch actually wears a little bigger than you might think. That’s because that the lugs are rather long. They do curve downwards so wearing comfort is not too bad. On the other hand, the lug to lug length of this watch is rather substantial, so it wears more like a 44mm or perhaps 45mm watch. Fortunately, the situation is quite thin, which ought to be the case for a watch that is as elaborate as this.The crown doesn’t twist down, but it is signed with the double-G logo of Glashütte Original.
