Glashütte is a brand I really adore. Not because the out-of-this world design approach or the crazy materials that they use. No, because of the fact they respect a classical dress watch approach and do their utmost best to fully optimize it. The Senator collection is the perfect example of how a classical approach of a dress watch suits modern-day wishes. The Glashütte Senator Chronograph Panorama Date is the perfect example.
Glashütte Senator Chronograph Panorama Date
The Glashütte Senator Chronograph Panorama Date is – besides a mouth full of words – a very cool and classy way of making a chronograph watch. It has a distinguished look and well-balanced details to it. We saw this watch for the first time at this year’s Baselworld and instantly loved it. Why? Because it’s fucking cool – that’s why. The indices are filled with blue lume and only the 12 and 6 are executed in a Roman numerals. This little detail instantly creates a cool contrast within the design of the chronograph.
This particular chronograph finds its energy in the Caliber 37, an integrated chronograph movement developed by Glashütte. This model is the third in line – next to the platinum and red gold models. What I really adore in the design of this watch is the contrast of the dark dial and the strongly visible blue lume. We don’t see the use of blue lume that often and in comparison with the yellow/green traditional lume, this makes a watch much more futuristic.
This Glashütte Senator Chronograph Panorama Date comes with in a 42mm stainless steel case. The Caliber 37 as mentioned before is capable of 70 hours time traveling when fully wound. The fact that this chronograph is so well-balanced in terms of design makes it a perfect watch for almost every occasion. It’s sporty and classy at the same time. Thus perfect as your everyday wrist partner.
