„Watch of the Year“ expert jury names Senator Excellence “Trendsetter 2017”


The industry applauds Glashütte Original

A great honour for our Senator Excellence family: Die Senator Excellence, the model that premiered the new line a year ago, was named “Trendsetter 2017” among the men’s watches participating in the “Watch of the Year” election. Glashütte Original CEO Thomas Meier accepted the prize at a festive ceremony held at Baselworld, to the applause of industry representatives.

  • The jury assembled by the renowned magazines ARMBANDUHREN and WELT AM SONNTAG honoured not just the “design concept under the sign of the new simplicity”, but also the x Calibre 36 manufactory movement – the heart of the entire line. Glashütte Original had submitted the movement – solid, pared down to the essentials, and according to the jury “revolutionary” - in 2016.

  • For Baselworld 2017 the Saxon manufactory had just presented the Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar. The timepiece has taken the standards set by the Calibre 36 – extreme stability, maximum precision, a long running time and timelessly beautiful aesthetics, developed them further and enhanced them with the complication, rich in tradition, of the perpetual calendar.

  • At the “Watch of the Year” competition these points convinced not just the expert jury, but the readers of ARMBANDUHREN and WELT AM SONNTAG, for whom die Senator Excellence is one of the best models of the year: their votes put the “Trendsetter“ in third place in the “Classic Watch 2017” category.
