Glashütte Original adds fiery dégradé dial colors to its Sixties family of timepieces


Swatch Group’s luxury German watchmaker Glashütte Original is following up on the success of its Sixties family of watches, which launched last year in green, with a vivid pair of orange and red models for 2019.

There will be a three handed model and one with a panoramic date, both using bold burnt orange textured dégradé dials that the company says represents the freedom and courageousness in art, culture, politics and society of the sixties.

Starting from a golden yellow at the centre, the color flows across the curved surface, changing to fiery orange and red before reaching the black perimeter.


The dégradé effect is highly technical and was achieved by Glashütte’s own dial factory in Pforzheim. Two new movements were also developed in house for the watches.
