Cool glacier blue lends the Glashütte Original Sixties 2020 annual edition a profound appearance. The brand is also introducing a new Sixties Chronograph in the same colour, presented for the first time in an annual edition.

Setting eyes on alpine scenery and majestic glaciers, it is difficult to resist their charms. They have an incomparable aura of clarity, peace and strength and take on some of the most beautiful colours that nature has to offer. Glashütte Original’s watchmakers pay tribute to these moods with the elegant glacier blue of the new annual edition – and present two models that interpret the characteristic Sixties design in a discreet, yet powerful new way. The cool look of the Sixties line, a classic from the Saxon watchmaker, underscores its versatile nature. The signature features of its 1960s design – the domed sapphire crystals, curved hands and characteristic Arabic numerals – reveal a charm of their own. Following silver, black, dark blue, green and orange, they are set off now by a glacier blue ground. This goes for the Sixties Chronograph as well, which appears with a new colour now, too.

The new Sixties is powered by the Calibre 39-52 automatic movement, developed in-house, while the new Sixties Chronograph features the manufactory’s Calibre 39-34. Both models have a 40-hour power reserve. The three-hand model is presented in a 39mm diameter polished stainless-steel case, while the chronograph appears in a 42mm stainless steel case. The Sixties Chronograph is equipped with a central stop-second along with two inset auxiliary dials for the small second and 30-minute counter. The domed sapphire crystal case back on both models offers a clear view of each watch‘s finely finished movement with three-quarter plate, swan neck fine adjustment, Glashütte stripe finish and skeletonised rotor with 21-carat oscillating mass.
