Glashutte Original Launches Senator Sixties Square Chronograph

Jun 02, 2009
The retro-touched Senator Sixties Square Chronograph was a fascinating innovation presented by Glashutte Original at Baselworld, in 2009. A special design dates back to the times when geometrical shapes influenced to a considerable extent the fashion and art. So this timepiece is a smart combination of fine elegance and technical progress.

The Glashutte Original Senator Sixties Square Chronograph watch boasts a 42mm case made of stainless steel. The bright polish, featured by this softly rounded square shape, places an emphasis on the sapphire crystal refinement. Looking through it, one cant really tear the eyes from the curved dials performed in black or matte silver, diamond-cut hour markers as well as the Arabic figures of the period-style.

There are two kinds of curved hands - the black dial enjoys the silver hands and the silver dial has the rose gold ones. Every little detail here adds to the retro image of the timepiece.

The fine stalk-type chronograph pushers are one more thing, standing out here. Resembling the start and stop buttons of the chronograph watches that belonged to the 1960s, these details make the watch really user-friendly.

The self-winding 39-34 caliber with an exquisite decoration can be seen through the sapphire crystal exhibition window, accommodated in the case-back of the Glashutte Original Senator Sixties Square Chronograph.

Produced by Glashutte Original, this movement demonstrates traditional features of Saxon watchmaking : three-quarter plate with a ribbed finish as well as a swan neck fine adjustment polished by hand.

The skeletonized central rotor presents gilt double-G brand insignia and boasts a 21-karat gold mass, intended for optimizing the winding motion.

Due to a balance frequency amounting to 28, 800 vibrations per hour, the chronograph can measure certain time intervals within the accuracy of 1/8th second. The power reserve constitutes 40 hours.

A leather strap, with large scales, made of Louisiana alligator, along with a tang buckle made of polished stainless steel, crowns the image of the Glashutte Original Senator Sixties Square Chronograph watch. The water-resistance of the watch is down to 30 meters.
