The characteristic off-centre hour/minute display of the new replica Glashütte Original PanoMatic Luna watch, its small seconds and the classic Glashütte Original Panorama Date make checking the time a distinct pleasure. The softly curving moon relief appears against a silver-coloured, starry sky. Its elegant curves emerge at 2 o’clock as the result of careful, skilfully executed diamond milling, which gives it greater visual depth.
It is based on two dial discs, mounted concentrically on the same level. In this way the two numerals comprising the date can be presented without the central separation bar typical of common date displays, thus assuring optimal legibility.
The characteristic Panorama Date, set within an oval dial window at 4 o’clock, is one of the unmistakable elements of elegant fake Glashütte Original watch style.
The finely polished stainless steel case, 39.4 mm in diameter, is framed by 64 white brillant-cut diamonds on the bezel, enhanced by 18 brillant-cut diamonds set on the dial’s 9 rod-shaped indexes and a 3 mm brillant-cut diamond on the crown. Light is thus captured by 83 brillant-cut diamonds in all, totalling 1.09 carats. The product of elaborate manual craftsmanship, the iridescent, shimmering blue mother-of-pearl dial is made by the manufactory’s own dialmaker in Pforzheim.
This new edition of the PanoMatic Luna is fitted with a pale blue Louisiana alligator leather strap and pin buckle. It complements two existing models, one in classic white and the other in darker hues. Belonging to the Saxon Manufactory’s exclusive Boutique Collection, it is available exclusively in the watchmaker’s own Boutiques around the world.
Ticking within the PanoMatic Luna is the manufactory’s own Calibre 90-12 automatic movement. Beating at 28’800 vph, it offers a 42-hour power reserve and can be admired through the sapphire crystal case back. It features Glashütte Original’s duplex swan neck and numerous traditional elements of Glashütte watchmaking such as the three-quarter plate, blued screws and the characteristic Glashütte replica watch decorative finishings.
