For Baselworld 2015, German watch manufacture Glashütte Original unveils two new versions of its PanoReserve model in red gold with a matt black dial, and in polished/satin brushed stainless steel editions with a dark blue dial.
The exceptionally beautiful and characteristic dials of the PanoReserve are made in Glashütte Original's own dial manufactory in Pforzheim. In Pforzheim, the city of gold and jewellery, Glashütte Original draws on deep specialist knowledge and long-established traditions in dial-making, thus ensuring that every Glashütte Original watch receives its own dignified and unmistakable “face”.
To achieve the desired hue it is necessary to exercise precise control over the entire galvanic colouring process, ensuring for example that the tension is at the correct level, that the dial is submerged in the bath for precisely the right length of time, and that the correct distance is maintained between the elements in the bath.
As is the case with the production of individual components of the manufactory's own movements, the dials too must be produced within specified parameters. Strict standards apply for the dials, above all with regard to the grain, pressure and duration, in order to prevent changes in the colour.
The Panorama Date and the power reserve display present indications in the German language. Along with the “Made in Germany” mark these indications offer a subtle reminder of the origin of the watch and a silent bow to the art of German watchmaking, as practised in Glashütte since 1845.
The new Pano models in red gold are offered with a choice of either a matt black Louisiana Alligator leather strap or a Louisiana Alligator nubuck leather strap, while the stainless steel versions can be worn with a dark blue calf's leather or Louisiana Alligator nubuck leather strap.
