Three variations of the new Glasshutte PanoReserve watch presents a stylish and sophisticated interpretation of the signature asymmetric Pano dial visuals.
A red gold edition with a silver dial takes optimal advantage of the larger case and slimmer bezel to unveil the strictly minimalist approach. The off-centre hour/minute display features faceted red gold hands and applied red gold hour indexes framing a finely drawn subsidiary seconds dial. Glashütte Originals characteristic Panorama Date display takes its place on the warm silver dial just below 4 o’clock as the connoisseur’s eye is drawn to the elegant, stripped-down power reserve display. The Panorama Date and power reserve are labelled in German, a subtle indication of the Saxon manufactures role as rightful heir to more than 165 years of fine mechanical watchmaking in Glashütte.
Two PanoReserves present the new visuals framed in polished and satin brushed stainless steel. One features a warm silver dial with blued hands and applied hour indexes on the hour/minutes dial, a black-on-white Panorama Date display and the simply compelling power reserve (Auf/Ab) with blued steel indicator. The second variation in stainless steel presents a grey ruthenium dial with white gold hands, applied nickel hour indexes and an impressive white-on-grey Panorama Date below the power reserve.
The heart of the PanoReserve is the manually wound 48-jewel Calibre 65-01 with 42-hour power reserve. Chief among the attractions visible through the sapphire case back are the duplex swanneck fine adjustment, hand-engraved balance cock, screw balance and the traditional Glashütte three-quarter plate with Glashütte ribbing, screw-mounted gold chatons, and blued steel screws. The new PanoReserves are fitted with either black or brown Louisiana alligator straps; colours and finish vary with the models.
