As a watchmaker producing only the most illustrious of timepieces, Glashütte's winning recipe is none other than a strict adherence to the highest horology standards and a dedication to the pursuit of timeless elegance. The newest piece fresh from the manufactory is the Senator Chronometer, the latest edit in the renowned Senator line.
Inspired by famous ocean chronometres of yore, this latest rendition is swathed in an expressive navy blue — a fresh, distinct nuance of the colour family the German house is partial to. The deep blue dial is an immediate eye-catcher: The dark hue belies a finely grained and lacquered watch face that affects a plush velvet-like texture, crafted entirely in-house by specialists in Pforzheim, Germany. An elaborate piece that requires carefully layered coats of lacquer to achieve its unique, textured shade; the same attention to detail is applied to the railroad chapter ring as well as the finely engraved indexes and numerals of galvanized silver.
Further emphasising the Senator Chronometre's complexity is its refined manual winding Calibre 58-01 that features a second-stop function. Each time the crown is pulled out, the seconds hand will reset and jump to the next minute to ensure an accurate hour-to-minute relation once the crown is pushed back in. The intricate inner workings drive the polished white gold hands, complemented against the blue dial by the small seconds display on the 6 o'clock mark and the power reserve at noon — a striking visual of horlogerie art merged with cutting-edge technology.
Stamped with the official seal of approval from the authority that rigorously vets a watch's movements for utmost precision, the German Calibration Service, this new Glashütte Original follows in the footsteps of its preceding batches with its earned certification of 'chronometre' status. A divine meld of the best ingredients that make a consummate horology piece, the Senator Chronometer is a modern classic you can't get enough of.
The Senator Chronometer is available at the Glashütte boutique.
