The 70s are coming back in style at the house of Glashütte Original. The iconic and casual decade was nakrjked by bell bottoms and bold colors, great science fiction classics like Beneath the Planet of the Apes and Star Trek: The Motion Picture and the hues of brown, yellow, green, purple and turquoise along with curved forms. Glashütte Original, to celebrate the 70s, has brought out a limited edition pair of chronographs in strong colors. The two new Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date models bring together the round corners of the Seventies wristwatch with strong, bold colors.
One of the dials is coated entirely with yellow varnish while the second version was given a refined sunray or brushed finish prior to being coated with a turquoise-black varnish with a dégradé effect. The house’s signature Super-LumiNova highlights are found on the appliqués of the hour and minutes hands for ultimate legibility in the dark as well, perfect for the disco era of the 70s. A vintage looking grey-brown Nubuck leather strap added further style to the timepiece. It is also available with a stainless steel bracelet.
While the watch’s design is casual and relaxed, it remains an exceptionally precise timepiece and was designed to be compact in order to ensure maximum efficiency. The watch is outfitted with an in-house 37-02 automatic movement which has a low susceptibility to interference and has an enormous power reserve of 70 hours. The two new models have been brought out in limited edition of just 100 pieces each.
Glashütte Original represents the German art of watchmaking and has enjoyed an uninterrupted history that began in 1845. Located in the Saxon town of Glashütte, the manufactory brings traditional craftsmanship and innovative technologies together under
