A world first for German brand Glashütte Original, the new Senator Chronometer Tourbillon joins a one-minute flying tourbillon with a stop-second mechanism, zero reset and minute detent (the minute advances in one-minute increments during time-setting), which sets time with ultimate precision, ensuring the minute and hour hands are perfectly synchronized.
As soon as the crown is pulled out to set the time, the tourbillon cage and the second hand attached to it both stop, and only restart once the crown is pushed back in. The manual-wind Caliber 58-05 undergoes extensive testing and each watch is a certified chronometer.
The newly designed 42mm case features a slimmer bezel allowing for more dial space to view the blue galvanic time dial and the constantly moving tourbillon. All of the components are meticulously hand finished.
Price: $152,300 in platinum
