Glashütte Original says it has created a bridge to the past with its Senator Chronometer, which draws on the history of the German watchmaking village’s role in producing early marine chronometers in the 19th century that were used to navigate the world.
The dial is laid out in the same way as a historic marine and pocket chronometers with a day-night indicator at 12 o’clock, and the small second at 6 o’clock. The date is shown at 3 o’clock.
Its 42mm red gold or white gold case with sapphire crystal front and back houses a manually wound 58-01 movement that is chronometer-certified by the German Calibration Service.
Two dial options are offered: one in silver-grained lacquer with laser-engraved numerals and indexes, the other in varnished blue-grainé with details in white.
Prices are expected to be around $30,000.
