Glashütte Original captures the look and feel of a decade that launched numerous design icons with the Seventies Panorama Date. Offered in steel with three dial choices, the 70s look is coupled with the latest in modern watchmaking know-how to create the ultimate time machine.
The dial, fashioned of German silver, is available in galvanized silver, galvanized ruthenium, or blue. All three versions are shown below. The ruthenium dial offers a sunburst surface, while the silver version is matte. The blue dial features finely graded shading passing from a lighter center to a darker periphery in true 70s style.
A subtle yet important design element is the concave sapphire crystal case back which offers a comfortable fit and an excellent view of the caliber 39-47 automatic movement.
The well-crafted four-link metal bracelet fits the wrist very well by incorporating another modern design feature: a patented fine-adjustment system that assures perfect sizing. The integrated double G logo functions as both the clasp’s button and fine adjustment mechanism activator, which can be adjusted a up to eight millimeters in eight steps. The links are screwed to one another with no room for interplay between them so that they are more stable than links joined by pins. The double security mechanism with two buttons on either side helps prevent accidental opening of the clasp.
The Seventies Panorama Date should arrive at retailers in May/June. The European price is 8150 euros.
