Following the launch of the new Calibre 37 in Baselworld 2014, Glashütte Original had introduced another model into the collection – featuring a striking black dial and a stainless steel case.
The latest Senator Chronograph Panorama Date from Baselworld 2017 aims to provide a sportier and modern interpretation of the watch, as compared to its predecessors which was only available in both rose gold or platinum cases. Besides the new stainless steel case, another great difference between the watches is the dial. The new variant is fitted with a black dial, contrasted with baby blue markers and indices (filled with SuperLuminova). There were also some subtle tweaks with the dial design as well.
As mentioned, the watch is powered by Glashütte Original’s Calibre 37. This is an exquisite automatic movement from the German watchmaker, featuring a fully-integrated and compacted design. The main feature – as its name suggests – is the column wheel chronograph, with an additional fly-back mechanism. The other functions include the signature big-date indicator, as well as a power reserve gauge at the 9 o’clock sub-dial. Notably, the movement boasts a decent power reserve of around 70 hours. It is finished rather nicely too.
Lastly, the 42mm watch is available in three different strap options: either with matching black calfskin strap and light-blue stitching, black rubber, or a polished and satin-brushed stainless steel bracelet. Each of them gives the watch a different but interesting characteristic, and it will definitely appeal to collectors who are looking for a robust and yet versatile chronograph watch.
