This year, the big news from the German high-end Glashütte Original replica watchmakerat Baselworld was the introduction of brand new in-house base movement, the automatic Calibre 36.
The Panorama Date is actually a big date complication, an Haute Horlogerie version of the conventional date displays, in which the numerals are printed on two concentric discs displays on the same level. A precise jumping mechanism enables a higher accuracy of the date change, exactly at midnight. On the Senator Excellence Panorama Date, the softly rounded date window is placed between 4 and 5 o’clock, with an elegant two-step passe-partout.For more details about the new features introduced by the Calibre 36 and to learn more about the first Senator Excellence models, check out our story from March, Glashütte Original Senator Excellence and the new Calibre 36. As a base movement, the Calibre 36 opened up a new chapter for Glashütte Original,
The first watch to be powered by the new movement is the three-hands Senator Excellence, an elegant minimalist piece following the design patterns of the Senator Collection: slim bezel, domed sapphire crystal, finely ribbed crown, the hands, etc.
There are two versions of the Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Panorama Date copy watch, stainless steel (Ref. 1-36-03-01-02-01) and red gold (Ref. 1-36-03-02-05-01). Besides the different materials used for the case, there is a subtle difference between the dial of the two models.
Blued-steel pear-shaped hands and a filigree seconds hand render both timepieces easily legible. In both cases, a black Louisiana alligator leather bracelet and pin buckle assure the wearer both elegance and comfort.On the silver grained dial the black chapter ring, the roman numerals and the hour indexes are laser-engraved and galvanised. On the rose gold version, the tiny minute numerals are printed in red, while on the stainless steel model they are black.
This model balances the Panorama Date function with a moonphase complication, which is placed between 10 and 11 o’clock. The soft curves of the moonphase window reveal a silver moon floating above stars on a deep blue sky. Because of the size of the moonphase display, the Glashütte Original logo is moved to 9 o’clock and it is beautifully balanced at 3 o’clock with the Glashütte I/SA inscription.
The back of a Senator Excellence features a special engraving attesting the quality of the watch and in addition the owner is provided with an examination certificate detailing the most important test results. There is also an online portal, where the owner has the opportunity to review individual test results and to learn about specific test procedures. All these steps are further proofs that Glashütte Original is targeting the connoisseurs, the passionate collectors of watchmaking excellence.
Every rose gold fake Glashütte Original Senator Excellence watch, whether the three-hand model, the Panorama Date or the Panorama Date and Moon Phase, is thoroughly tested for 24 days, under conditions that surpass the requirements of the German Chronometer certification test.
