Glashütte Original presents new annual edition: Sixties and Sixties Panorama Date
The new orange Sixties and Sixties Panorama Date underscore the line’s retro-chic identity. The watch face presents its signature curvature, from the dial and the hands to the sapphire crystal, anti-reflective on both side. Arabic numerals, diamond-cut indexes, manually applied hour markers and hands highlighted with Super-LumiNova add harmonious accents.
Starting from a golden yellow at the centre, the colour flows across the curved surface, changing to fiery orange and red before reaching the black perimeter. The result is luminous vivacity, warmth and energy. Credit for this impressive ensemble of different hues also known as the dégradé effect goes to the experts at Glashütte Original own dial manufactory in Pforzheim.
The surface structure also has a story to tell. The low-relief pattern is produced using the original tools and methods from the 1960s. Each dial blank receives its embossing with the aid of a 60-tonne press, which was already in use at the Pforzheim manufactory at the time. During the nineteen sixties, cross-border cooperation also allowed Pforzheim to deliver dials to Glashütte for the Spezimatic. The partnership began more than 50 years ago and culminated with the integration of the dialmaker into the Glashütte Original manufactory in 2012. Today its innovative spirit plays a decisive role once again, in the development of the Sixties line as every single dial makes clear.
The new timepieces are powered by the manufactory’s 39-52 (Sixties) and 39-47 (Sixties Panorama Date) automatic movements. Developed in-house, they are mounted in polished stainless steel cases, 39 mm in diameter for the three-hand Sixties, 42 mm for the Panorama Date model. A brown Louisiana alligator leather strap with pin-buckle closure rounds off the vintage design. As the annual edition 2019, the Sixties and Sixties Panorama Date are available only for a limited period of time from Glashütte Original Boutiques and selected authorised dealers worldwide.
