Minimalism in Watchmaking

For quite some years already, Glashütte Original is working hard to bring a more contemporary feel to its usual German design. New collections are bringing a younger and more modern taste to its Teutonic pieces, for Baselworld 2018, with the Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar Limited Edition

The Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar Limited Edition

The latest addition to the Senator Excellence family combines mechanical beauty with a modern, technical feel that was somewhat absent from the previous collections. Glashütte Original introduced for Baselworld 2018 a new, open-worked limited edition of its perpetual calendar. Bolder but still in line with the brand’s expectation, it is a refreshing novelty.

It is not the first time that Glashütte Original offers an open-worked watch. Other watches with such decoration were usually quite baroque and old-fashioned - curved skeletonised bridges adorned with arabesques. Glashütte Original has made use of this technique to implement a fresh, modern design.

The Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar has a 42mm case, with brushed and polished surfaces
