Five years after its launch by Glashütte Original, the Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date gets a green or grey dial for a special edition of 100 pieces in each colour.

Glashütte Original is located in the centre of Glashütte, a small town set in a valley in Saxony’s Ore Mountains; for hundreds of years the town was shaped by its principle activity, mining. Today the manufactory is surrounded by thick forests, rich green meadows, steep rocky outcrops, moss-covered stone, and innumerable traces of tin and silver mining. Green and grey are thus the dominant colours of this natural backdrop to everyday life in the town.

The dials of the special limited edition of the Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date take up the colour-play characteristic of the region and its impressive natural landscape. This successful chronograph’s striking new green and grey faces are fashioned in the watchmaker’s in-house dial manufactory in Pforzheim. There they are also ennobled with the sophisticated degrade effect, deployed with sensational effect on the latest models of the Sixties line as well: the lighter hues at the centre of the dial shade gradually into darker nuances at the circumference.

This striking timepiece makes a brilliant impression – in its new look as well – with the proven arrangement of the chronograph displays: central stop seconds, 30-minute and 12-hour counters with flyback mechanism, small second, power reserve display as well as the characteristic Panorama Date. The rhodium-plated rod indexes give the timepiece a clean, clear look.
