If you have a few gray hairs, you'll remember those crazy, fantastic 1970s that changed the world – including the watchmaking. New shapes and colors featuring organic and liquid designs echoed the forms of nature in a dreamlike realm suspended between imagination and reality.
And straight from those years, Glashütte Original brings back this chronograph, with all its somewhat retro elegance, underscored by the degradé green color of its dial, which becomes so fascinating in this age of bits and computers, far away and yet so close.
Glashütte Original Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date: A modern heart and a column wheel
Although its vintage influences are apparent, the heart of this timepiece is contemporary and highly innovative. It is a proprietary caliber 37-02, encased within its 40 mm steel case, revealed through the watch's visible sapphire crystal case back that ensures its water resistance of 100 meters.
It includes an automatic chronograph movement beating at 28,800 bph and offers a power reserve of an impressive 70 hours. The push-button operation of this Glashütte Original Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date is velvety smooth, thanks to the presence of the column wheel- The caliber is decorated with the usual care of the German manufacturer. In addition, this movement offers a flyback function and incorporates a magnificent date display that incorporates the Grande Date quick-action system.
An eye-catching display
The Glashütte Original Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date most attention-grabbing element is the lacquered dial in Fab Green shade, a kind of bright olive green with a shaded effect and applied indexes with SuperLuminova inserts, which demonstrates the maniacal care with which the company that is based in the German town of the same name makes its timepieces. There are three strap versions for this exquisite timepiece available: a Nubuck leather strap, a natural rubber strap, and a steel bracelet with a micro-adjustment clasp.
