NEW: Glashütte Original Sixties and Sixties Panorama Date Annual Edition With Singapore PricesWritten by Alvin Wong
Orange you thrilled?
We see what you did there, Glashütte Original. Not long after the German brand shared some insights about its fastidious dial-making process – please read all about it HERE if you haven’t – it follows up the reveal with the real drop: the new Sixties and Sixties Panorama Date Annual Edition watches for 2019.
Glashütte Original’s annual edition roll-outs are distinguished by their retro disposition, courtesy of the Sixties collection inspired by the era’s ‘Spezimatic’ models, and wonderfully textured coloured dials.
The first edition debuted in 2018, featuring green dégradé finish. For 2019, the watches are offered with stunning orange dials, also flaunting the same mesmerising surface decoration and hand-hewn gradient finish.
As the name implies, the watches are produced only for a one-year limited time period. Full specs and Singapore prices below.

Alvin promises not to be a douche when talking about watches. He may have scoured the Basel and Geneva watch fairs for the past 15 years, and played an instrumental role to the growth of Singapore's pioneering horological and men's lifestyle publications, but the intrepid scribe seeks to learn something new with each story he writes.
