I have to say that the Glashutte Original Diver Watch Replica grade 37 moves are among the best-kept secrets in the watch world for those who enjoy chronographs. There is nothing else out there quite like it, and it must really get more focus on offering as much performance as it can in a bundle that appears very straightforward and tasteful. I will also note that it has a stop seconds attribute (which means that if you pull the crown out, the seconds hand stops so that you can more exactly set the time). The chronograph seems to be a mere 30-minute chronograph at first, but then you notice that hours are counted not via a dial, but a moving disc observable under 12 o’clock. I was concerned about the legibility of something like this at first, but I learned to really love it – and really find this system for studying a 12-hour chronograph superior to most others. Like I said, the chronograph is a flyback, and operated through a pillar wheel transmission which you are able to see in the movement when seeing it through the sapphire crystal throughout the rear of the case.Finally, Glashütte Original completes the high-functionality package by including a discreet power reserve indicator within the upper left quadrant of this subsidiary seconds dial. It will cut out a little bit of the dial’s indicators, but that is a very small price to pay for this extra functionality that I really enjoy. From a performance standpoint, the 37-02 motion works at 4Hz (28,800bph) with a power reserve of about three times.
In 2014, Glashütte Original revealed a new chronograph movement designed and hand-crafted entirely in its own manufactory in Glashütte. The new Calibre 37-01 column wheel chronograph debuts at the heart of the Senator Chronograph Panorama Date in two versions, one with a platinum case and hand-finished silver dial and the other with a red gold case and lacquered silver grained dial. This year, Glashütte Original adds some sporty charm to the line-up. A distinctive new version of the Senator Chronograph Panorama Date in stainless steel now complements the elegant inaugural models.
