Baselworld 2014: Glashütte Original Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date. Live Pictures and Pricing.

Fitted with the newly developed Glashütte Original Calibre 37-02 column wheel chronograph movement, this German manufacture presents the new Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date ref. 1-37-02. This new timepiece is a perfect addition to the Seventies line and a watch that we are loving right now. This new Glashütte Original watch is fitted with a perfectly square stainless steel case measuring 40 mm x 40 mm x 13.5 mm and a practical 12-hour chronograph. The Glashütte Original Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date is available in three different dial options —blue, silver and anthracite— and with a stainless steel bracelet, a rubber strap or a Louisiana alligator strap. Since we didn't show it here, the alligator strap for the silver dial model would be black.

The perfectly balanced dial features a running seconds register with integrated power reserve indicator aperture at 9 o'clock, 12-hour chrono register via a small aperture at 12, 30-minute chrono register at 3 and the classic panorama date aperture at 6 o'clock.

The case features satin brushed and polished areas as well as rectangular pushers for the chrono. A very well designed case that even with the pushers it does not compromise the original design of the iconic Seventies model. The watch is fitted with a screw-down crown that makes this new model ideal for aquatic activities when fitted with the rubber strap.

Via the display case back, one can appreciate the newly developed Glashütte Original calibre 37-02. This new movement was entirely developed  in-house automatic and combines the positive attributes of a classic column wheel chronograph with the advantages of a simpler, cam system chronograph featuring exceptional features like a central chrono seconds hand, 12-hour chronograph with flyback mechanism and an impressive power reserve of up to 70 hours when fully wound. Additionally, this new calibre features a new oscillation system that has no regulator on the spring for optimum isochronism.

On the wrist, be prepared to wear a watch that wears true to its size, solid and very comfortably. So far, our favorite combo on this watch is the one with the silver dial and black rubber strap ref. 1-37-02-02-02-33. You know we are suckers for rubber straps so this watch seems to be the perfect timepiece for this Summer and for those warm afternoons yachting in Saint-Tropez.

Sticker Price $14,900 Rubber or Alligator Strap, $16,400 Stainless Steel Bracelet. For more info on Glashütte Original click here.
