Replica At Best Price Glash??tte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar Limited Edition Watch


I am usually not a fan of skeletonized watches, however there’s a lot to admire about the Glashütte Original Senator Moon Phase Skeletonized Edition watch. For a start, it is a little more legible than other skeletonized watches, but just marginally. Attempting to tell the hour is slightly problematic for me personally, but at least the stage of the moon is easy to read and it’s easy to tell how much power the watch has in its motion. But what I admire most about the opinion is the amount of intricate engraving that has become the movement. Maybe. But it’s quite nice to check at and it is something that sets this watch apart from the rest. Like many other seasoned watch fans, my affection for German watch manufacturer Glashütte Original runs deep. It’s not just the classic nonetheless spirited designs that normally define the brand which are attractive, but it’s also the enduring dedication to performance and mechanical excellence that the region is well known for. Yes, like most men and women who know watches well, I’m a big fan of what Glashütte in Saxony brings into the sphere of modern watches. So let’s look at one of those brand’s more daring watches, yet one which is totally wearable on a daily basis, the Glashütte Original Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date reference 1-37-02-03-02-70 using all the blue dial on fitting steel bracelet.

In 2016, Glashütte Original introduced a new collection of watches called the Senator Excellence. One can consider these watches to be an offshoot of the larger Senator collection. It is difficult to tell solely from press photos, but the Senator Excellence watches differ by being more modern, elegant, and classic in appearance. To celebrate this new collection, Glashütte Original is introducing a new member to the collection. This is the new Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar Limited Edition. It only comes in white gold, it has bright blue heat-treated hands, but most of all, the highlight is its skeletonized dial, which shows off more of the Calibre 36-02 underneath.

Analysis

Because of the skeletonized dial, this new Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar Limited Edition watch is a markedly different watch from the watch on which it was based. The regular Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar is an elegant watch with very classic and simple styling, but this new model is much more modern in its presentation.

And if I were to nitpick, I’m not sure skeletonized is the right word to describe the dial. You see, where most of the dial is exposed, the movement itself isn’t really skeletonized to the same extent as say the Girard-Perregaux Laureato Skeleton watch. That watch is heavily skeletonized with exposed bridges that seemed to have been shaved down to the minimum. The Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar Limited Edition, on the other hand, doesn’t show off any elaborate skeletonized bridges. Instead, what we can see in the dial cutout is the cover plate for the perpetual calendar module. Granted, it seems to be nicely decorated with guilloche, but I don’t consider it to be skeletonized, at least not in the strictest sense of the word. Nevertheless, there are openings in the cover plate that attempt to show off the mechanisms of the perpetual calendar module.

Summary

I think this is an interesting addition to the Senator Excellence collection. I have my reservations about this piece, mainly because of the skeletonization, but I can’t deny that its overall aesthetics are very different from the rest of the Senator Excellence watches. And for that, I think it might be appealing to some watch collectors. Who knows? And since Glashütte Original is only producing 100 pieces of this, it is going to be exclusive and that could be a huge selling point for some people. The Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar Limited Edition is priced at around $37,500$39,900 depending on strap and buckle options. glashuette-original.com
