Sixties Panorama Date
Design from the 1960s brings the 20th century’s most exciting decade to life. This extraordinary period of sweeping change left its mark on everything from music to movies, architecture and product design
Standing apart in a world of its own, Glashütte Original’s Sixties Panorama Date pays tribute to the spirit of the times with an instantly recognizable, authentically German take on design.
Elegant and independent, with a touch of retro-modern styling, the Sixties Panorama Date combines unparalleled excellence in traditional mechanical watchmaking with a superbly evocative ‚vintage sixties’ design.
In 2013 the German watchmaker added two timepieces to the successful Sixties collection, both featuring a particularly fascinating colour: the new versions of the Sixties and the Sixties Panorama Date present themselves in shimmering midnight blue.
The domed German silver dials are galvanised in Glashütte Original's own dial manufactory and given a sunburst finish.
Stylised Arabic numerals appear at hours 3, 6, 9 and 12 within a finely drawn white minute ring. Lightly curved hour and minute hands in white gold with superluminova highlighting and an elegant seconds hand assure that the time remains perfectly legible at all hours. The pure design of the watch is enhanced by precisely milled hour indexes.
The Sixties Panorama Date is presented in a 42 mm polished stainless steel case.
On this model, the white numerals of the characteristic Glashütte Original Panorama Date display appear on a blue ground that is perfectly matched with the colour of the dial.
The models rounds off its perfect 60s look with a dark blue Louisiana Alligator leather strap, held in place on the wrist by a pin buckle in mat stainless steel.
A specially formed sapphire crystal case back, which the Saxon manufactory first presented in the Sixties collection, is a feature of the two new models as well, permitting enhanced, broader views of the Calibre 39-47, heart of the Sixties Panorama Date.
The automatic movement features a 40 hour power reserve and are finished exquisitely to meet the Saxon watchmaker's extremely demanding standards. Characteristic features of Glashütte watchmaking present here are the bevelled edges, polished steel components, a swan neck fine adjustment, Glashütte three-quarter plate with Glashütte stripe finish and a skeletonized rotor with oscillating mass in 21-carat gold.
