Glashütte Original is offering a new version of their Senator Perpetual Calendar in red gold with a matte black dial on a rubber strap. The dial features high-contrast white Roman numerals and a white minute ring for excellent legibility. The perpetual calendar displays are clear and logical, and the oversize panorama date is a paradigm of clarity. Find wallpaper and pricing inside.
The leap year display is discreet yet unambiguous. A red dot indicates a leap year, followed by white, black and yellow dots for successive years. The heart of the Senator Perpetual Calendar, visible through the sapphire glass case back, is the Glashütte Original Caliber 100-02, designed and constructed at the manufactory in Saxony. This automatic movement features a screw balance with 18 weighted gold screws and swan-neck fine adjustment. Twin barrels provide a power reserve of more than 55 hours. The reset mechanism allows easy synchronization of the second hand with a time standard. Unlike other reset mechanisms, the second hand is connected neither to the winding stem nor the crown. As a result, when the crown is pulled out, the balance remains in oscillation and the movement continues to run, significantly reducing material stress. Pressing a separate button on the side of the case at 8 o’clock activates the reset mechanism. The movement is constructed using the signature Glashütte three-quarter plate with Glashütte ribbing and the skeletonized rotor with 21k gold oscillation weight.
A black Louisiana alligator strap offers a dressed-up look, while the available black rubber strap provides a sporting aesthetic. Both straps have foldover red gold clasps.
