Striking Handcrafted Timepieces With Moon Phase & Perpetual Calendar From Glashütte Original


Senator Excellence Moon Phase Panorama Date

This exquisite timepiece is presented in a 40 mm case in red gold or stainless steel and reflects with its classic design the pure essence of Glashütte Original. The slender bezel permits a generous view of the lacquered dial with its fine silver graining, the laser-cut galvanic black indexes and the matching railroad chapter ring. The moon phase display presents an especially striking union of functionality and aesthetics: at Glashütte Original, the moon disc is elaborately crafted in-house. In this model, it is fashioned in German silver and subsequently galvanised blue. Two round moons are then carefully diamond-milled, which gives them their convex form and silvery brilliance.

Every single watch bears a special engraving in the form of a “Q” on the case back, to be understood as a symbol of exceptionally high quality. Together with an individual test certificate, this engraving guarantees that the watch meets the highest standards in terms of stability, running time, precision and aesthetics. The sapphire crystal case back offers unobstructed views of the finely finished and highly precise automatic movement Calibre 36. Various strap options including black Louisiana alligator leather, synthetic fabric and a stainless steel bracelet are available and offer both elegance and comfort for the wearer.


Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar

The perpetual calendar is one of the most challenging complications in watchmaking. This complex, intelligent mechanism guarantees that the date, weekday and month are always shown accurately – even automatically accounting for leap years – without the need for any manual correction for more than a century.

The Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar by Glashütte Original is powered by the manufacture movement Calibre 36, which sets new standards for precision, stability, running time and aesthetics. The slim bezel offers a perfect view of the lacquered dial with a delicate silver grain, the black galvanised indexes and the matching railroad chapter ring. The small minute markers are printed in a vibrant red. The Panorama Date, the weekday and the month windows are beautifully accentuated by frames in the style of a passe-partout. A separate display below 12 o'clock depicts the leap years; its small hand moves along a scale from 1 to 4 in an anti-clockwise direction.

This stunning timepiece is available in red gold or stainless steel. The polished and satin-finished surfaces of the 42-mm case reflect the light in a beautiful manner. A brown Louisiana Alligator leather strap, which is as comfortable as it is stylish, matches the warm tone of the red gold case. The stainless steel version is complemented by a choice of straps including black Louisiana Alligator leather, blue and grey synthetic fabric and a stainless steel bracelet with fine adjustment mechanism.
