Glashütte Original – Sixties Panorama Date

Design from the 1960s brings the 20th century’s most exciting decade to life. This extraordinary period of sweeping change left its mark on everything from music to movies, architecture and product design. Standing apart in a world of its own, Glashütte Original’s Sixties Panorama Date pays tribute to the spirit of the times with an instantly recognizable, authentically German take on design. The rose gold case frames a galvanized black dial featuring exquisitely stylised white Arabic numerals, rose gold hands, diamond-cut hour markers and, of course, the panorama date display, in white on black.

Elegant and independent, with a touch of retro-modern styling, the Sixties Panorama Date combines unparalleled excellence in traditional mechanical watchmaking with a superbly evocative‚vintage sixties’ design. The domed, galvanized black dial gives pride of place to Glashütte Original’s distinctive implementation of the panorama date display, which is complemented by exquisitely stylized white Arabic numerals at hours 3, 6, 9 and 12 and a finely drawn white minute ring. Gently arching, rose gold hour, minute and seconds hands and diamond-cut hour markers enhance the elegance of this compelling design.

The shaped sapphire crystal case back that is characteristic of the Sixties offers an unobstructed view of the Caliber 39-47 automatic movement and its oscillating weight, crafted in 21-carat gold. The polished stainless steel case and a finely-worked black Louisiana Alligator leather strap complete this iconic 20th-century vintage design.
