Last week at Baselworld 2015, Glashütte Original presented a new version of its Senator Observer with a new dial featuring bright superluminova and in-house automatic calibre 100-14. The new Glashütte Original Senator Observer features a matte black grainy dial with white accents and Arabic numerals. Running seconds at 9 and power reserve indicator at 3 and large double date aperture at 6 o'clock. Although traditional observation watches were typically fitted with manual wound movements, the Senator Observer is powered by a self-winding movement. This new dial on the Glashütte Original Senator Observer is well balanced and a perfectly example of Saxonian watchmaking. The superluminova on this new dial is bright and long lasting. Fitted with a stainless steel case measuring 44 mm in diameter and 12 mm in thickness, the watch is classic and modern at the same time.
The Glashütte Original manual wound calibre 100-14 powering this new iteration of the Senator Observer features the traditional three-quarter plate with stripe finish and a 21K gold skeletonized rotor. The movement features 60 jewels and it provides a power reserve of 55 hours when fully wound while beating at a frequency of 28,800 vph. Via the display case back, the movement can be fully appreciated.
On the wrist, the watch wears true to its size and very comfortable. Its look is rounded out by an beautiful calfskin leather strap with folding buckle. The Glashütte Original Senator Observer is also available on stainless steel bracelet.
Sticker Price $11,800 USD on leather strap and $13,200 USD on bracelet. For more info on Glashütte Original click here.
