Diamonds that sparkle like shining drops of water on shimmering mother of pearl dials, bracelets as white as Caribbean beach sand, as blue as the ocean or as golden as the sun: summer dreams come true with the ladies’ watches from Glashütte Original.
The models from our men’s collection speak of summer, too: together with the blue alligator leather strap, the glowing blue dials of the Sixties models awaken yearning for a day at the seaside. Featuring water resistance of 10 bar and bracelet versions in cool stainless steel, alligator leather or rugged rubber, the new Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date is a perfect match for an afternoon at the pool.
The following timepieces from our current collection present themselves as ideal companions for memorable moments of the summer 2014.
The Lady Serenade line presents a convincingly feminine, charming appearance and represents a new generation of classic women’s watches. It is offered in two different case materials: stainless steel and rose gold. Three different versions of each are available: impressive editions with strikingly beautiful mother of pearl dials, brillant-cut diamonds and lustrous bracelet colours.
The presented stainless steel model features hour indexes set with brillant-cut diamonds and is fitted with elegant hands in white gold indicating hours, minutes and seconds. Softly curving arches resembling strings of pearls adorn the surface of the deep blue mother of pearl dial. An ocean blue bracelet in Louisiana alligator leather completes this model’s refined appearance.
Inspired by the symbolism of the moon, Glashütte Original created the PanoMatic Luna. The elegant moon phase display presents a shining silver moon and stars against a fine-grained silver sky. A silver frame sets Glashütte Original’s characteristic Panorama Date apart, and a 3.0 mm brillant-cut diamond on the crown provides a perfect final touch.
The essential beauty of the watch is revealed in the iridescent colours of the mother of pearl dial. Available in two versions, the off-centre hour/minute and subsidiary seconds dials are set in the one version against a mystic black Tahiti mother of pearl ground, and in the other against a dial in light mother of pearl. In combination with a radiant white bracelet in durable rubber, this variation of the feminine timepiece is the ideal companion for sunny summer days and romantic summer nights.
The models in the Pavonina collection, which was launched in 2013, offer an impressive display of diversity. Ranging from the simply modern through classic elegance to ornamental opulence, these feminine timepieces exhibit flowing forms and a fascinating array of well thought out details.
The elegant rose gold model appears as if kissed by the sun. The elaborately crafted dial shimmers in iridescent mother of pearl, and the finely formed metal bracelet in red gold, created in the manufactory, graces the wrist like a piece of fine jewellery. Its individual links present a successful interpretation and variation on the cushion shape of the case.
Sixties Panorama Date
Last year Glashütte Original extended the popular Sixties line of its Vintage collection to include two particularly colourful timepieces: The new versions of the Sixties and the Sixties Panorama Date models are presented in a strong, dark blue, evocative of a summery midnight sky.
Arabic numerals are positioned on the domed German silver dials at hours 3, 6, 9 and 12 within a finely drawn white minute ring. Both models round off their perfect 60s look with a dark blue Louisiana alligator leather bracelet with elegant surface patterning.
Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date
Baselworld 2014 saw the debut of the sporty Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date in the Saxon manufactory’s Vintage collection. Available in casually elegant versions featuring blue, silver and galvanised ruthenium dials, the new Chronograph’s (Calibre 37-02) streamlined and softly curved stainless steel case makes a striking impression. All three versions feature a dial artfully adorned with sunburst finishing. The indexes are fashioned in white gold, as are the hour and minute hands, inlaid with Superluminova to ensure comfortable legibility in the dark as well.
This stylish timepiece is complemented by bracelet variations in stainless steel, Louisiana alligator leather and durable rubber.
