A declaration of love in lilac from Glashütte Original

The sentiment of love is reflected in the new Glashütte Original PanoMatic Luna with its dial adorned with diamond-set rod indexes and lilac Arabic numerals forming a heart at the center. The PanoMatic Luna is limited to 25 pieces.

The dial of the new PanoMatic Luna combines classic and romantic elements in an elegant ensemble. The hand-crafted mother-of-pearl dial catches the eye immediately, especially the Arabic numerals in different sizes, drawn in a delicate shade of lilac as radiant forms reaching to the edge of the dial. To this end the dial was printed from the back, so that the colour shines through softly and the mother-of-pearl shimmers evenly throughout. At the center the numerals form a heart, itself framed by nine rod indexes with 18 brilliant-cut diamonds. The dial, made in the watchmaker’s own dial manufactory in Pforzheim, is fashioned from the inner layer of sea shells. To protect the razor-thin material from breakage it is mounted on a thin disc of German silver.

The moon phase display owes its striking appearance to its elaborately crafted moon disc, which is also made in Pforzheim. The two silver-coloured moons are first cut out with a milling tool. The surface of the moons is then polished with a diamond milling tool, which gives them a unique brilliance. The special feature of this display, perceptible only upon closer inspection, are the little hearts in the night sky, which playfully take up the symbol of love.

The bezel forms a glamorous frame for the stainless-steel case and captures everyone’s attention with 64 brilliant-cut diamonds. A matching purple strap in alligator leather takes up the coloured accents from the dial. The sapphire crystal case back offers a clear view of the manufactory Calibre 90-12 with its highly refined decorative finishes. The duplex swan-neck fine adjustment from Glashütte Original, a signature feature of the brand, along with numerous other traditional elements of Glashütte watchmaking such as the three-quarter plate, blued screws and the characteristic Glashütte decorative finishes, offer further proof of the origin of the watch. The movement has an oscillation frequency of 4 Hz and features a power reserve of 42 hours.
