Glashütte Original’s Sixties Iconic Square Collection is comprised of five new chronograph models.

Glashütte Original Sixties Iconic Square

Glashütte Original evokes the geometric forms and the colorful 1960s of the new era of the iconic square set, a group of five chronograph square squares buffered cases and five glare, the color of the dial in the company produced by the dialmaker of the German Pufuerzheim town.

The Glashütte Original Sixties Iconic Square watches — and, in fact, the brand’s entire Sixties collection — draw their inspiration from the “Spezimatic” models produced in Germany in the 1960s. The modern models’ cushion-shaped square cases, domed dials, curved hands, and period-appropriate wavy Arabic numerals are callbacks to those now-iconic mid-century timepieces. The dial colors are Sixties Iconic Forest (green); Sixties Iconic Ocean (blue); Sixties Iconic Graphite (gray); Sixties Iconic Tangerine (yellow-orange); and Sixties Iconic Fire (bright red). All are made using original tools and authentic materials from the decade for which the collection is named. read more

Watch Recommended : Glashütte Original Senator Chronometer Regulator Review

Let’s get to know the Glashütte Original Senator Chronometer Regulator.

G.O. commenced its recent run of Teutonic chronometers with the 2009 Baselworld launch of the Senator Chronometer and its manufacture “Caliber 58.” In 2013, the subject of this feature, the Senator Chronometer, bowed as a anachronistic variation on the original concept. Still bearing the blessing of the DKD, the Chronometer Regulator’s separate hours, minutes, and seconds dials pays deference to the “regulator” or “mother” clocks used by past watchmakers to set precisely those timepieces in service centers. read more

Glashütte Original Senator Manual-Winding Skeleton Review

The movement’s function and design perfectly syncs with the case and the dial, creating a beautiful timepiece. The Senator Manual Winding Skeletonized Edition appears to be a true feat of architecture in terms of horology.

The movement is almost completely visible, and since it only measures in at 4.2 millimeters, the watch gets a high grade in terms of comfort, even on a smaller wrist. The movement is fully designed and is put on display. The hand-engraving and pattern design featured on the front and back perfectly continues the Caliber 49 line at Glashütte Original. read more

Classic Chronograph Movement

Top 5 Classic Chronograph Movements

A while back, I wrote an article on my top 5 iconic chronograph watches. Some of you readers wondered why Zenith wasn’t in there. Quite simply, it didn’t make my personal Top 5. But, I do love the Zenith El Primero movement, and think that its reputation as a great chronograph caliber is well-earned. Hence, to make it up for some of you fellow watch nerds out there, here I focus especially on chronograph movements rather than watches. read more

Glashütte Original Sixties Iconic Watch Review

Every year, watch brands release pieces that strike closer and closer to the essence of their original, iconic forebears.

2015 Glashütte Original Senator Observer

2015 Glashütte Original Senator Observer Adds Luminous Highlights

Several years ago, Glashütte Original introduced its first Senator Observer, a limited-edition, white-gold timepiece that celebrated the memory of German watchmaker Julius Assmann and famed explorer Roald Amundsen. It was modeled on the traditional observation watches made in the German town of Glashütte, which were used by navigators to determine a ship’s position at sea. In 2012, an unlimited version in a stainless steel case with two dial options, made its debut. This year, the brand launches the first Glashütte Original Senator Observer with luminous material on its dial. read more

On the Wrist: Glashütte Original Senator Observer

With brighter hands, a darker dial and a different font, the newest Glashütte Original Senator Observer is subtly sportier in 2015. This German brand’s previous Senator Observer echoed the more classic look of German marine chronometers models, with silver, grey or white dials and blued hands. But as this newest iteration I’ve been wearing for about a week or so demonstrates, with well-placed new luminescence, a traditional chronometer can become just a bit livelier. read more

On The Wrist Glashütte Original Pavonina

When it was first introduced in 2013, the Pavonina collection was touted by German watchmaker Glashütte Original as being “dedicated to women in all their facets.” In fact, the collection comprised about twenty models right from the start, no doubt with the goal of fulfilling the dreams of many multi-faceted ladies. read more
