A fan of iconic Sixties design, its geometric forms and eye-catching colours, he’s well aware of the inspirational Spezimatic, made in Glashütte in the swinging sixties and presented in a series of models that still breath the spirit of the times. For all these reasons he’s taking a appreciative look today at the Sixties and Sixties Panorama Date, the most recent enhancements of the Sixties collection from Glashütte Original. The domed sapphire crystals, curved hands and idiosyncratic Arabic numerals are signature features of the models. What’s more striking is the retro green with a “dégradé effect” of the dials that feature a finely textured surface achieved with the help of a 60-tonne press.
The new Sixties and Sixties Panorama Date are powered by manufactory designed and built automatic movements, the 39-47 and the 39-52, respectively. The signature Glashütte Original Panorama Date is positioned on the central vertical axis in the lower half of the dial. The three-hand model is housed in a polished 39mm stainless steel case whereas the model with Panorama Date comes in a 42mm stainless steel case. A black calf-skin strap and pin buckle complete the design. Both timepieces are available in Glashütte Original Boutiques and from selected retailers worldwide only for the limited time of one year.
