The Glashütte Original manufactory welcomes a new edition in white gold case featuring a dark blue dial to its successful Senator Chronometer line, a collection of high precision mechanical timepieces that unite two richly traditional elements of the German watch brand’s history: the continuing effort to achieve the highest levels of performance in watchmaking, coupled with a refined sense of timeless elegance and beauty.
A watch may only exhibit the proud title of “chronometer” when it has earned a seal of approval from one of the authorised testing institutes. It is a given, at Glashütte Original, that all movements are tested internally against the strictest criteria. The Senator Chronometer offers further evidence of its quality in the form of official certification as a chronometer by the German Calibration Service, and assumes with pride its role as contemporary heir to its predecessors in the art of precision timekeeping.
The dial is inspired by the famous marine chronometers of the past and coupled with contemporary elegance. In 2016 the Senator Chronometer appears in a newly designed white gold case with the Senator line's characteristic slim bezel, which allows the elaborately worked dial to display its full splendour. This ensures not only generous views but makes it easier to read the different displays: the small seconds at 6 o'clock, for example, or the power reserve display at 12 o'clock.
The manufactory movement's refined decorative elements also set a high standard. A sapphire crystal case back permits one to take in at first glance the classic features of the Glashütte art of watchmaking: the famous three-quarter plate, screw-mounted gold chatons and hand-engraved balance cock unite the highest watchmaking expertise with authentic craft skills.
