Glashütte Original has recently presented two new models to its line of Excellence: the Senator Panoramadatum and the Senator Panoramadatum Mondphase. Already in the spring, the manufacturer has laid the groundwork for a new generation of timepiece in his own house with the manufacture 36 movement and two new releases this fall.
Watch Senator Panoramadatum Excellence staged the largest known date in a prominent way. The secret of its remarkable readability is the two ordained concentric display disks that are placed at the same level and thus display the two digits of the date without stem of separation between the two. An exact jumping mechanism offers right now even more precisely the effective date change at midnight. By the same, refined details make this useful feature a style element. This display is integrated in the dial by a discrete rounded window opening and its two levels reinforce the impression of the optical depth. The printed numbers in intense black stand out well from the ivory background.
