Review: Glashütte Original Sixties Chronograph

Hands-on review of the Glashütte Original Sixties Chronograph Annual Edition 2023 with exclusive live pictures. Price € 9,800
Created as a tribute to the design of the 1960s, the Sixties Collection from Glashütte Original was inspired to a successful watch introduced in 1964 by the then state-owned VEB Glashütter Uhrenbetriebe, the Spezimatic. This model was manufactured till 1979 in a large number of different versions and colourful dials.

Glashütte Original Sixties Chronograph Annual Edition 2023

Introduced last September, the Sixties Chronograph Annual Edition 2023 fits within the stylistic elements of this collection, offering a refined dial that catches the eye with its distinctive craftsmanship.

We recently had the pleasure of testing and wearing it for a few days, and we are now delighted to share our impressions and pictures with our readers.

The classic round case measures 42 mm in diameter with a thickness of 12.4 mm. It is crafted from stainless steel and entirely polished for a sleek appearance. The chronograph start/stop and reset functions are activated by the pusher at 2 o'clock and 4 o'clock, respectively.

The watch boasts pleasing proportions and sits comfortably on the wrist. For reference, the wrist in our pictures measures 17.8 cm / 7 inches.

Water resistance is guaranteed up to a pressure of 3 bar (approximately corresponding to a depth of 30 metres / 100 feet).

A domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides protects the similarly domed stone-grey varnished dial. This is finely embossed with a dégradé effect that fades into a darker tone towards the outside.

The low-relief pattern is produced using the original tools and methods from the 1960s. Each dial blank receives its embossing with the aid of a 60-tonne press.

The white Arabic numerals are complemented by incised hour markers with luminous dots. The red-gold rod-shaped hands are gently curved to follow the profile of the dial and feature Super-LumiNova inlays for improved readability in low-light environments.

The self-winding Calibre 39-34 powers the display of hours, minutes, the small seconds, the second stop, and the chronograph’s 30-minute counter. Operating at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour), it offers a power reserve of 40 hours.
