Glashütte Original wishes you a merry Christmas, unveiling its timepieces and the new Senator Excellence line novelties in the brand’s warm boutiques worldwide.
I remember first putting a Glashütte Original Seventies watch in my wrist back whenever the brand released the set in 2011. I had seen the watch in pictures prior to attempting it out and was pleasantly surprised how much more I liked it if wearing it compared to the pictures would have suggested. Like many timepieces, this is one of the pieces that just happens to come alive in the event the wrist as opposed to being viewed in the vacuum of advertising pictures. I think that is because the cushioned square instance with its finely made tapering bracelet is particularly flattering to the natural curves of one’s hand and arm – which permits the layout to market itself via aesthetics and wearability. If you’re curious about another shoot, we previously reviewed the non-chronograph variant of this Seventies Panorama Date watch here. That makes it a true square, and the instance itself feels much more like a retro television screen, which is intentional. Square or non-round watches are tough to get right. Finding the proportions and total design of a non-round watch right such that it is both legible and looks good on the wrist is quite hard to perform. Though when it is done properly it has the makings of a classic.
