The Seventies Panorama Date watches, from Glashütte Original, are now offered with an extended range of bracelets.
First offered following its BaselWorld 2011 debut with a hand-crafted four-link steel bracelet, the vintage-inspired model is now available with the elegant Louisiana Alligator leather strap in black, dark blue or grey, matching the three different dial colours. For a durable, sporty look, there is also a water-resistant black rubber strap enhanced with laser engravings.
Glashütte Original created the Seventies Panorama Date with the 1970s in mind, considering it an era of exciting new shapes and developments in design. The softly flowing curves of the streamlined steel case are reflect the spirit of the decade, and the silver dial is offered in galvanised ruthenium, galvanized silver, or blue. The ruthenium dial presents a sunburst surface, while the silver version is matt. Finally, the blue dial features finely graded shading passing from a lighter centre to a darker periphery.
The Glashütte Original Panorama Date appears in the six o’clock position, framed by applied indexes at the periphery. The hands, available in white or rose gold, are coated with Super-LumiNova for improved legibility. A domed sapphire crystal case back offers the ultimate in wearability and comfort and polished/satin-finished stainless steel case underscores the distinctive, vintage look.
