Following its successful debut at Baselworld 2011, the popular model from the „20th Century Vintage“ collection offers an even richer range of looks.
The Seventies Panorama Date first appeared fitted with a hand-crafted four-link steel bracelet; additional bracelets are now available. The Vintage model takes on an elegant aspect with the new Louisiana Alligator leather strap in black, a dark blue or grey which perfectly fit to the three available dial colours. A casual, sporty alternative takes the form of a black rubber strap enhanced with elaborate laser engravings. This material is water resistant, very pleasant to wear and exceptionally robust.
Glashütte Original created the Seventies Panorama Date with the nineteen seventies in mind, an era of exciting new shapes and developments in design. The softly flowing curves of the streamlined steel case are an impressive reflection of the spirit of the decade. The dial, fashioned of German silver, is presented in galvanized ruthenium, galvanized silver, or blue. The ruthenium dial presents a sunburst surface, while the silver version is matt. The blue dial features finely graded shading passing from a lighter centre to a darker periphery.
The Glashütte Original Panorama Date appears in the six o’clock position, framed by applied indexes at the periphery. The hands in white or rose gold are coated with Super-LumiNova for improved legibility. A special domed sapphire crystal case back offers the ultimate in wearability and comfort. The polished/satin-finished stainless steel case underscores the distinctive, vintage Seventies look and feel.
At the heart of the Seventies Panorama Date is the manufactory’s own calibre 39-47 automatic movement. Clearly visible through the domed sapphire crystal case back, this finely finished movement presents all the characteristic Glashütte features and testifies to the fine art of watchmaking, clearly evident still today in the Glashütte Original manufactory.
