Glashütte Original has launched the new Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date, the newest member of its ’20th Century Retro Collection’. This chronograph uses a new chronograph movement, designed and manufactured by Glashütte factory.
Glashütte’s design of the 1970s big calendar watch was inspired by the 1970s, a time when creativity and new things emerged in the design field. The 1970s Grand Chronograph continues the spirit of this family, displaying a streamlined, elegant dial appearance: a small seconds dial at 9 o’clock with black and white power reserve indication, and 30 minutes at 3 o’clock Timer. In the middle directly below 12 o’clock, there is a small but stylish hour counter, which displays Arabic numerals from 1 to 12, which contrasts with the Glashütte iconic large calendar display on the lower part of the dial.
The three dials are ruthenium-plated, silver-plated or blue, showing a low-key and elegant elegance. The blue model has a sunburst pattern, and the elegant gradient gradually diffuses from the center to the surroundings. The ruthenium-plated and silver-plated dials each have a matte and sunburst finish, making them stunning choices. The hands are made of platinum, and the hour and minute hands are coated with Super-LumiNova, which improves legibility. The dial is surrounded by rounded square polished bezels and frosted cases, both of which are made of stainless steel, highlighting the unique look and charm of the Retro Seventies Series Seventies.
The column wheel structure of the new chronograph has reduced the number of individual parts and is particularly streamlined. The movement uses a two-way automatic tourbillon, and the 70-hour power reserve is controlled by a single barrel wheel. Four gold screws on the rim of the balance wheel are used for adjustment. There is no adjuster on the mainspring, allowing the movement to run continuously for a long time, thereby improving accuracy.
The start and stop function of the timer is controlled by the button on the upper right of the case, and the flyback timing structure is controlled by the button on the lower right. Press the flyback button to stop the chronograph timer and reset the hour, minute and second hands of the timer. However, time measurement did not stop, but a new round of timing was started immediately after the flyback button was released.
Glashütte’s new chronograph watch showcases the world-renowned features and finishes of this Saxon watchmaker. The double-sided anti-reflective dome sapphire crystal protects the dial, while another sapphire crystal on the back of the case allows people to watch the automatic movement. In addition, the extraordinary features are also unobstructed: 3/4 plywood decorated with Glashütte original classic threads, blue steel screws and 21K gold skeleton rotors with double G logo. At the same time, there is a new vibration system adjusted by four gold screws. The beautiful panorama is presented to the connoisseurs through the sapphire crystal on the back of the case.
