Glashütte Original - Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar

| No comment
In the art of watchmaking, the perpetual calendar is considered to be a particularly sophisticated complication and, for sure, it is one of the most appreciated by collectors and watch enthusiasts.


The complex mechanism guarantees a precise display of the date, weekday and month – even taking leap years into account – with no need for manual correction for more than one hundred years to come, of course assuming that the watch runs continuously.

Creating a display that is both complete and easy to read is a challenge which Glashütte Original certainly won with the new Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar presented at Baselworld 2017.


An expert in the creation of perpetual calendar watches, Glashütte Original has further refined this complication in terms of visual balance, precision, and stability. An achievement that was possible thanks to the new Calibre 36 automatic movement, whose innovative silicon spiral enables extreme precision, while a single spring barrel ensures a power reserve of more than 100 hours, at a frequency of 4 Hertz (28,800 vibrations per hour).


This movement greatly improves stability thanks to a compact construction and an innovative bayonet mount used to secure the movement within the case.


In their design and construction of the new movement, Glashütte Original's engineers have made every effort to also achieve great user-friendliness.

Along with hours, minutes and seconds, the Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar presents the characteristic Glashütte Original Panorama Date, a finely worked moon phase, and weekday, month and leap year indicators.



Setting of the date can be monitored directly in the display window, while discreet correctors on the case enable adjustments to weekday, month and moon phase displays. Although the power reserve of 100 hours ensures the correct interplay of the displays for many hours after its owner has set the watch aside, the practical universal corrector makes it possible – should it ever prove necessary – to change the day, date and month with a few simple moves.



A separate display beneath hour 12 indicates the leap year. The hand moves counter-clockwise across a scale of 1 to 4, ensuring unmistakable clarity for every year, not just the clearly marked leap year.


The watch features a 42 mm x 12.8 mm case, available in satin-polished stainless steel or red gold, and is water resistant to 5 bar (50 meters / 165 feet). The light hue of the silver-grained dial is echoed in the window displays and highlights in contrast the laser-cut, galvanic black indexes and railroad chapter ring.



While the stainless steel model presents the leap year and minute numerals in black, in the red gold version these are printed in red, complemented by slim, blued-steel hands.

Completed by an elegant black or brown Louisiana alligator leather bracelet with pin buckle, the Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar has a price of Euro 19,500 in stainless steel (ref. 1-36-02-01-02-01) or Euro 30,500 in red gold (ref. 1-36-02-02-05-01). A folder clasp option is also available. glashuette-original.com
