Glashutte Original Senator Diary Watch - Smartest Alarm Ever

Aug 18, 2010
The Glashutte Original Senator Diary automatic watch boasts an innovative alarm clock complication that allows to set an alarm time up to 30 days ahead of time.

The new Glashutte Original watch is animated by the Caliber 100-13 based on the Caliber 100-03, with the addition of the alarm clock module. The complicated movement is constructed from 600 components, 340 of which are used for the remarkable alarm clock module. It is important to mention that if the watch’s owner manually corrects the date, the date change is passed along to the alarm mechanism, so it is not necessary to reset the alarm. The module incorporates a second spring barrel, so even if the timepiece runs down, the alarm stays wound.

The Caliber 100-13 is the brand’s fine mechanical automatic movement, the beauty of which is revealed via an antireflective sapphire crystal case back. It demonstrates a three-quarter plate embellished with Glashutte ribbing, polished steel components, beveled edges and blued screws.

The movement provides a 55-hour power-reserve.

The Senator Diary watch also demonstrates an elegantly balanced design. You will notice two crowns and two pushers located directly opposite each other on either side of the 42 mm case crafted in stainless steel. The crown and pusher found on the right are used for operating the panorama data display that is featured at 3 o’clock on the galvanized black dial. The time is indicated by white gold hour, minute and sweep seconds hands.

The diary alarm is presented at 9 o’clock via a black sub-dial with a German silver ring and an arc-shaped aperture with a red arrow at 6 o’clock.

The Glashutte Original Senator Diary watch is also available with a rose gold case and a galvanized silver dial with rose gold hour, minute and sweep seconds hands and applied rose gold hour markers. Both versions of the watch are presented on a black Louisiana alligator leather strap. The timepiece is 50-meter water-resistant.

Here is the way you set the alarm:

First, select the date, looking at the diary alarm window found within the 10 o’clock sub-dial - it is necessary to press the pusher at 8 o’clock until you see the letter ‘d’ in the window. Turn the 10 o’clock crown until the red hand points to the correct date from 1 to 31.

Set the time, pressing the pusher once again. You will see the letter ‘h’ in the window. Turn the crown to select the time, looking at the 6 o’clock aperture, from quarter-hour intervals from 00.15 to 24.00.

Set the alarm, pressing the pusher once again and you will see the alarm symbol (a bell) in the window.

Wind the alarm, turning the crown.

At the set date and time, the alarm rings for up to 60 seconds. To stop the alarm or cancel the previously set alarm time, it is necessary to press the 8 o’clock pusher until you see the ‘alarm off’ symbol in the window, represented by a black line struck through the bell.
