The Pano collection captivates thanks to its striking dial layout, which is particularly evident with the new PanoLunarTourbillon, a model first launched in 2013. The lavishly decorated dial with the characteristic off-center displays is framed by a case in platinum. Both the auxiliary dial for hours and minutes and the Flying Tourbillon with the small second are positioned on the left side of the dial. An exquisite moon phase display with blue night sky and the watchmaker’s signature Panorama Date grace the right side. The skeletonized hour and minute hands, indexes and the blued steel tip of the seconds hand provide accents in blue. All engravings on the dial side are executed in Glashütte Original’s own dial manufactory in Pforzheim. The engravers work without a pattern, using a burin to inscribe the design freehand in the solid gold dial blanks. After 27 separate steps and an entire day’s engraving time – if not more – the dial of this masterpiece is complete. Elaborate decorations adorn the back of the movement as well.
The PanoLunarTourbillon is powered by the automatic movement Calibre 93-12. The timepiece has a power reserve of 48 hours and a fully integrated moon phase mechanism. The oscillating system with 10 weighted screws and 8 regulation screws ensures optimal rate precision. The off-center, skeletonized rotor has an oscillating mass in 21-carat gold. On a screw-mounted decorative stainless-steel plaque, one finds the words “Flying Tourbillon” engraved and lined with gold. The new timepiece is fitted with a matching blue Louisiana alligator leather strap with fold fastener in platinum.
