Deliciously vintage, fabulously funky, the Sixties Iconic collection is an array of five chronographs whose coloured dials are by Glashütte Original’s own manufacturer in Pforzheim. Limited to 25 of each, there’s not a minute to waste!

Dynamic, distinctive, unforgettable, the 1960s made their mark with inspirational design in watchmaking, furniture, fashion and beyond, with geometric forms and innovative, colourful visuals. In in the mid-sixties, Glashütte’s watchmakers launched the Spezimatic in a series of versions destined to become lasting icons of style. Popular design elements of the time – the square cushion shape, domed dials, curved hands, idiosyncratic Arabic numerals – inspired the Sixties Iconic Square Collection. Five stunning colours give the models their names: Sixties Iconic Forest, Sixties Iconic Ocean, Sixties Iconic Graphite, Sixties Iconic Tangerine and Sixties Iconic Fire. All are powered by the manufactory automatic Calibre 39-34, featuring characteristic attributes of fine watchmaking in the Glashütte tradition.

It’s hip to be square: The five models in the Sixties Iconic Square Collection feature the distinctive square cushion shaped stainless steel case, measuring 41.35 x 41.35 mm, and the manufactory automatic Calibre 39-34 chronograph. All are fitted with a matching Louisiana Alligator leather strap: brown for the models featuring forest green or tangerine coloured dials, black to complement the models with graphite grey, ocean blue or fiery red dials.
