With a harmonious dance of cool silver and dark blue tones – Glashütte Original launches the new Senator Chronometer watch, playing with unique color combinations, like setting off turbulent waves in the deep sea. Like the historical models, the new timepiece combines outstanding mechanical precision with a simple design, allowing the time to be read at a glance. As the latest masterpiece of the prestigious precision timepiece from the small town of Glashütte, the Senator Chronometer watch inherits the time-honored tradition, fully demonstrating its extraordinary origins and original essence.
Precision machinery, leader in timepieces
If precision is an international standard, then chronometers are undoubtedly the brightest stars in this field because only the most accurate timepieces can be called chronometers. In the past, accurate and reliable observatory watches were guides for long voyages on the high seas, and marine chronometers from Glashütte became world-renowned in the 19th and 20th centuries. During the development process of the Senator Chronometer watch, Glashütte’s original design team drew inspiration from antique maritime astronomical clocks. It adhered to the high standards of quality and performance in the past. Each watch must be based on five Tests for 15 days by an independent testing agency (Thuringian Office of Weights and Measures) in three different locations and at three temperatures. After passing the test, they can be certified chronometers, protecting busy lives with excellent precision. Replica swiss watches.
Creative colors, extraordinary taste
The Senator series is an indispensable member of the Glashütte original product family. This series of exquisite timepieces are outstanding masterpieces of German precision craftsmanship, cleverly combining complex and precise machinery, elegant and timeless design, and elements with a long heritage.
The new Senator Chronometer watch injects fresh vitality into this series: innovative and cool silver-blue tones, integrating traditional craftsmanship with modern aesthetics.
The dial and hand-wound movement parts undergo a complex and delicate frosted silver plating process: artisans use a mixture of fine silver powder, salt, and water to hand-brush the surface to create an elegant and beautiful luster. Finally, these elements are coated with an electroplated gray coating that complements the polished traditional blued steel hands and applied hour-markers.
Harmonious layout, unique
The silver-blue tone of the dial sets the tone for the design of the entire watch. The 42mm case is crafted from elegant white 18k gold, hand-polished, and satin-brushed for a gleaming brilliance. The sapphire crystal glass and case back allow an unobstructed view of the inner scenery.
Antique marine chronometers inspire the design elements of the dial:
- The hour and minute hands are set in the center.
- The slightly inset small seconds hand is set at 6 o’clock.
- Glashütte’s original and representative large calendar display is set at 3 o’clock.
Antique watches are also the source of inspiration for the concave shape of the bezel, which makes the visible space of the dial larger and more eye-catching. The bezel also features a delicate knurled edge – a decoration once used on marine chronometers to improve grip stability.
Paired with a dark blue Louisiana alligator leather strap with a white 18k gold folding buckle, it looks elegant in every move.
Exquisitely decorated, pleasing to the eye
The Senator Chronometer watch is equipped with Caliber 58-08 original manual winding movement, which is accurate and reliable. The movement vibrates at a frequency of 28,800 times per hour and has a power reserve of 44 hours and 40 minutes. In addition, this watch is equipped with a sophisticated stop-second device: after pulling out the crown, the time display stops, and the second-hand returns to zero and stays in that position. During the time-setting process, the brand’s iconic minute stop function ensures that the minute hand jumps to the next minute mark with a perceptible ticking sound, ensuring that the correct relationship between seconds and minutes is always maintained. And let the time setting reach second-level accuracy.
Caliber 58-08 original manual winding movement also constitutes a pleasant visual enjoyment. Through the sapphire crystal glass case back, the classic features of Glashütte’s watchmaking art come into view: the famous three-quarter plate, screw-fixed gold sleeve, hand-engraved balance cock, etc., all made with ingenuity. A masterpiece of art.
The new Senator Chronometer silver blue model will be available in Glashütte Original global stores and some authorized dealer boutiques from August 2023. Swiss replica watches store.
