Manufactory Letter 2/2018

Baselworld 2018 – presentation of the new models



Dear Sir or Madam,

Just a short while ago, the 68th Berlin International Film Festival came to an end with numerous "Capital Moments" and top-class movie premieres. Now we are already excited and looking forward to the next big event – Baselworld – which is about to start.

Starting tomorrow, we will be presenting our new products for 2018 at the world's largest trade fair for watches and jewellery. Please do come and visit us at our booth C25 in Hall 1 for a hands-on experience of our latest creations.

We are in Basel again this year from March 22 - 27 to present the most recent additions to our collections. In today's Letter from the Manufactory we are pleased to present an advance look at an exclusive selection of highlights.

We hope you'll enjoy your discoveries.

Your Glashütte Original Team

Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar - Limited Edition

Certified quality, classic complications and fresh design


The latest addition to the Senator Excellence family is limited to 100 pieces and reveals the full beauty of its movement. The skeletonized dial of the Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar - Limited Edition offers penetrating views of the inner workings of its movement: the displays for the Panorama Date, moon phase, weekday, month and leap year are set within the generous dimensions of the skeleton-cut dial ring and discreetly accented.

The central cut-out shifts the centre of attention to the galvanic grey module cover plate, whose openings clearly reveal the interplay of the calendar discs. An elaborate guilloche decoration adorns the movement's cover plate, its sweeping lines broken only by individual red jewels. Like all models in the Senator Excellence line, this timepiece has proven itself in 24 days of testing in the manufactory.

Senator Excellence line extended

Excellence in blue, silver grey and white


This spring the Saxon manufactory presents three new versions of the Senator Excellence Panorama Date and the Senator Excellence Panorama Date Moon Phase, destined for the wrist of the style-conscious gentleman. In a follow-up to the debut editions, these timepieces are now available in blue, silver-grey and white, mounted in a slightly larger, 42 mm stainless steel case.

The new models underline Glashütte Original's exceptional dial expertise: the galvanic blue dial presents a fine sunray decoration; the dial galvanised in silver-grey is enhanced with a vertically brushed finish, and the lacquered white dial offers an impressive matte surface. White gold indexes and colour-matched, sword-shaped hour and minute hands complete the dial visuals in a harmonious manner.

Sixties & Sixties Panorama Date Annual Edition

Cool retro-chic in stylish green


The nineteen sixties have inspired not one, but two desirable new entries in the Sixties Collection: The Sixties and the Sixties Panorama Date with green dégradé dials, both of which will only be available for one year. The domed sapphire crystals, curved hands and idiosyncratic Arabic numerals are among the signature features of this line.

It is the intense green dial, however, that makes the most striking impression. Its dégradé effect blends the lighter hue at the centre of the dial with a darker nuance at its domed edges. The dials also feature a finely structured surface created using original tools from the nineteen sixties.

Friends of refined timepieces can look forward to additional highlights, among them a minimalist version of the globetrotter Senator Cosmopolite in stainless steel, and the very successful Senator Chronograph Panorama Date in a new, high-contrast look.

More detailed information about all our novelties and live impressions of the fair can be found on our website and social media channels.
