Glashütte Original says it takes a certain kind of man to wear a watch as casually elegant as this new version of the Senator Chronograph Panorama Date: “A true gentleman with a taste for quality and class, bold yet understated, knowing how to persuade and lead,” the company says with a nod — perhaps ironic — to our current crop of legislators on The Hill.
The Swatch Group-owned watchmaker presented its first integrated chronograph movement Calibre 37 at Baselworld four years ago within high end watches in platinum and red gold.
The column wheel chronograph’s movement was the star, with its Germanic functional design, precision and reliable performance.
This year the Saxon manufactory presents a stainless steel version of the Senator Chronograph Panorama Date with a white dial with black ornaments. By day, the black hour, minute and stop seconds hands, indexes and Roman numerals at hours 6 and 12 pop off the pure white dial. But night, Super-LumiNova highlights emit a glowing green light, permitting excellent legibility during night hours.
The watch comes in a polished and satin-brushed 42mm stainless steel case.
A selection of straps including brown calfskin, black rubber or a polished and satin-brushed stainless steel bracelet can be swapped out.
Like its predecessors, the heart of the Senator Chronograph Panorama Date is the Calibre 37-01 automatic chronograph movement with flyback mechanism and 12-hour chronograph counter with a power reserve of 70 hours.
