Glashutte Original Sixties Square Tourbillon Watch - Artistry and Incomparable Technique

Jul 11, 2011
Glashutte Original proudly presents its new Sixties Square Tourbillon watch. It is created in the spirit of respect for German watchmaking traditions, while being at the cutting edge of technology.


Designed in the vintage style of the sixties, the new Glashutte Original watch employs a cushion-shaped rose-gold case. Its front side is shielded by a glare-proofed domed sapphire crystal.

The sapphire glass, used for the case-back, permits an appreciation of fascinating details of an exquisitely finished automatic caliber 94-12 movement. It supplies a 48-hour power reserve.

Integrated within the mechanism is an off-centered rotor with a 21-carat oscillating weight. It also incorporates a three-quarter plate with Glashutte ribbing, blued screws, bevelled edges and a winding wheel with a sunburst embellishment.

The caliber is enriched with a Flying Tourbillon device, which can be admired in the opening at 6 oclock. The cage, which accomplishes one rotation per minute, also serves as a small seconds indicator. The Flying Tourbillon mechanism is counterbalanced by a date aperture at 12 oclock.

The matt silver dial of the new Glashutte Original Sixties Square Tourbillon watch also features rose-gold hour and minute hands as well as black Arabic numerals and rose-gold hour indexes.

Offered in a limited edition of 50 pieces, the new Glashutte Original watch is worn on a black leather strap.
