Traditionally known for their sea legs, the observation timepieces by German watchmaker Glashütte were the trusty companions of adventuring seafarers not too long ago. Precision, endurance and nagivational capabilities were their defining factors. Following the turn of the 20th century, these watches have come ashore and made land their home.
Paying homage to the rousing exploits of seamen and the timepiece's role in guiding a vessel, Glashütte's lastest version of their classic Senator Observer comes with Super-LumiNova hours, minutes and hands. Take it along on post-sundown escapades as the beacon of the night will tell the time even in inky darkness, and promises a trusty power reserve of 55 hours.
As an additional tribute to the storied history of observation watches, German words 'Auf' and 'Ab' are inscribed on the reserve display, exactly how its predecessors were marked. With options of straps in either black calfskin or metal, indulge your adventurous soul with the former that's rugged and masculine, or tame the horology sea siren with the latter and make a true metropolitan out of it.
The Glashütte Senator Observer is available at TimeWise by Cortina, Wisma Atria.
