Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar Limited Edition
Since its introduction two years ago, we’ve seen some impressive timepieces from Glashütte Original’s Senator Excellence collection. An extension of the larger Senator collection, the Senator Excellence watches are more classical and elegant in aesthetics. Joining the Senator Excellence family this year is the updated Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar, an exciting new iteration of its perpetual calendar model, complete with a breathtaking dial.

When it comes to skeletonised dials, Glashütte Original takes it a step further by showcasing almost all there is to bare, exposing an elaborate guilloché mainplate right in the centre, and leaving just a ring of indexes on an anthracite dial, together with day, month, date, leap year and moonphase indications.

The 18K white gold case measures 42mm in diameter and 12.8mm in thickness—suitably masculine dimensions—while the polished bezel, lugs and caseband offer great contrast, elevating the overall appeal of the watch with a contemporary touch.

Powering the watch is the automatic Calibre 36-02 that’s visible via the sapphire caseback. This robust engine offers up to 100 hours of power reserve with a standard 4 Hz beat rate. Having seen several iterations since its release two years ago, the Calibre 36 movements have gained a reputation for being impressively precise movements that exceed chronometer certification.

The blue Louisiana alligator leather strap with matching white gold buckle complements the overall blue grey colour scheme of the watch. A pretty fresh departure from Glashütte Original’s usually conservative releases, the Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar will definitely delight a newer generation of enthusiasts looking for a timepiece that’ll last the ages.
