This year’s PanoInverse Limited Edition from Glashütte Original impresses with a very unexpected design, bringing street art and fine Glashütte watchmaking together. Its movement, which is shown on the dial side, serves as a canvas for filigreed skyscrapers on the front and back. The detail is magnificent and evokes a stroll through the city, with something new to discover around every street corner.
A beautiful contrast to the architectural lines, the balance bridge and the duplex swan-neck fine adjustment take center stage. Alongside the butterfly bridge, the pieces are bold against the laser-engraved, galvanic black rhodium three-quarter plate. There are two dials, one for hours and minutes, and one for the subsidiary seconds. In typical Glashütte style, there is also a power reserve indicator.
The journey continues on the reverse of the watch. The buildings grow bigger and even more detailed, even including a graffiti artist spraying the Glashütte logo on a billboard. The characteristic blued screws and the rubies set into screw-mounted gold chatons make for nice color accents within the urban setting.
The heart of this big city beats to the rhythm of the manual winding manufacture caliber 66-12 h which is elaborately crafted and finished in Glashütte Original’s workshops. It ticks inside a platinum case that has a diameter of 42mm.
Pricing for the 50-piece limited edition Glashütte Original PanoInverse is marked at approximately $46,700 when converted to USD.
