INTRODUCING: The Glashütte Original SeaQ

Think Glashütte Original and the chances are good that 'diver' isn't a category that immediately springs to mind. The German brand is known for many things – from 3/4 plates to Panorama dates – but undersea adventure isn't really one of them.  That's not to say that the brand doesn't have form in the area. Fifty years ago the brand did indeed make a specialist underwater watch, for both military and civilian markets, and now they've decided to take the…

INTRODUCING: Glashütte Original gets spicy with two new pumpkin-hued Sixties models 

Hold onto your hats because Glashütte Original has just dropped another dose of exceptional colour, in the form of the 2019 edition of the Sixties and Sixties Panorama Date. In case you don't recall last year's version, it was a pretty exceptional green (here's a closer look) and a very popular choice. It was also one of the greatest examples of green being a breakthrough trend for 2018. Now, we don't think that this fiery orange will have broad cross-sectional…

HANDS-ON: Glashütte Original go all out with their contemporary Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar

As far as complications go, perpetual calendars are typically classically styled, verging on the stuffy, depending on how well they're done. Not that there's anything fundamentally wrong with this – after all, fine watchmaking thrives on tradition. But I can understand the desire to shake things up a little, and throw down some contemporary styles, which is exactly what Glashütte Original have done with this limited edition take on their Senator Excellence PC. Fundamentally, this watch is the same as…

IN-DEPTH: The Glashütte Original Senator Cosmopolite in Steel – a study in complex elegance

The story in a second: It's big, it's complicated, it's bloody clever. I've said it once and I'll say it again: I've got a real soft spot for German watchmaking, but especially for Glashütte Original. Underappreciated, and painfully under-marketed anywhere outside of Europe, they are one of VERY few brands that manufacture their own dials and cases (in a separate facility in Pforzheim, not in Glashütte proper). Over the years, things like the '60s and '70s collections have consistently grabbed…

HANDS-ON: Looking great in grey – the Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Panorama Date 

It's easy with any brand's new release catalogue to get swept up with the drama and complexity of the halo pieces. In the case of Glashütte Original that glory goes to the flashy green of the Sixties Panorama Date, or the bells and whistles of the Senator Cosmopolite. But sometimes you crave something simple, clean and pure. That's where this latest take on the Senator Excellence Panorama Date comes in. If you're not au fait with the watch, it's one…
