Close Up: Glashütte Original Senator Manual Winding Skeletonized Edition
As you may remember from our Baselworld coverage, Glashütte Original unveiled some outstanding novelties this year. The German manufacture also showcased their mastery of the art of engraving, presenting a very fine skeletonized edition of the Glashütte Original Senator Manual Winding.
The Senator Manual Winding Skeletonized Edition features a classic design and simple functionality; just two hands hover above the open-worked dial, enhanced by a black railroad minute ring and finely drawn Roman numerals. The face partially reveals the escapement, the gear train’s elements, and the winding barrel with sunburst decoration at 6 o’clock.
The sapphire crystal caseback offers the wearer an exceptional view of the movement’s meticulously finished components, including the winding wheels with helical ornament, the screw-mounted gold chatons with blued screws, and the bridge mechanism, which is decorated with complex floral pattern engraving.
This elegant model is housed in a polished red gold case, 42mm in diameter with a height of 9.5mm. It accommodates a manually-wound Calibre 49-18 with a 40-hour power reserve. The Glashütte Original Senator Manual Winding Skeletonized Edition will retail for $37,100.
