Glashütte Original presents two new models of the collection Pano, a timepiece with an original design and extraordinary craftsmanship, proposed in new elegant declinations, thus the new versions of the PanoMatic Lunar and Pano Reserve, with handcrafted deep blue dials framed by a red gold case.
The new PanoReserve and PanoMaticLunar from the German watchmaker Glashütte Original exhibit an original and contemporary design. A polished and satin-finished red gold case frames the characteristic asymmetrical configuration of these two models. The hour / minute and small seconds dials are aligned along a vertical axis on the left side, while the feature Panorama Date, with white numbers on a blue background, is set just below 4 o'clock. Luminous touches on the gold hour and minute hands ensure perfect legibility in all light conditions.
The PanoReserve's fan-shaped Auf / Ab (up / down) power reserve indicator is positioned at 2 o'clock, while the words "Panoramadatum" (Panorama Date) e "Gangreserve" (power reserve), in German, recall the origins of the watchmaking company.
The PanoMaticLunar impresses with its refined display of the moon phases, with golden moon and stars dotting a silver sky. The indicators have been arranged on the dial according to the Golden Ratio, the law of aesthetic harmony that has inspired artists and architects for centuries.
The dials of the two new Pano versions are made in Glashütte Original dial manufactory in Pforzheim, Germany. It takes 40 different steps to produce the unmistakable details and perfect finishes of the dials. Rich blue, for example, is the result of a galvanic process that must be carefully controlled to achieve the exact desired shade of blue. The dial must be immersed in the galvanic bath for the right amount of time and the voltage must be maintained at the required level.
All aspects of electroplating must follow rigorous standards, defined in order to prevent even the slightest variation in color. Equally stringent standards are adopted for the processes required to create the grooved “vinyl” pattern of the surface of the off-center hour / minute and small seconds dials or to produce the pad printed numbers of the Panorama Date indicator.
The dial specialists from Pforzheim are also involved in the production of the disc for the PanoMaticLunar moon phase indicator. The two golden moons of the disc are made using a tool with a diamond tip that allows to obtain their splendid convex shape and an extraordinary shine, while the silver starry sky is the result of a complex galvanic process.
The PanoMaticLunar is powered by 4Hz automatic movement Caliber 90-02 with 42 hours of power reserve. The sapphire crystal caseback allows you to admire the expertly finished movement and its characteristic Glashütte elements.
The PanoReserve is powered by the caliber hand-wound 65-01 at 4 Hz, also with 42 hours of power reserve. In this model too, the traditional elements of Glashütte watchmaking are visible through the sapphire crystal case back: from the hand-engraved balance bridge to the gold screw bezels and blued screws on the three-quarter plate with Glashütte ribbon finish, up to the adjustment and double gooseneck developed by Glashütte Original.
The new watches are complemented by a dark blue Louisiana alligator strap with a red gold folding clasp or clasp. The new models are available in Glashütte Original boutiques around the world and at authorized dealers, at the same price of EURO 18.900.
