Limited to 100 pieces worldwideGlashütte Original PanoMaticChrono - Limited Variation in Navy Blue

Yearning for adventure and the wide open seas is something a glance at the new variation of the PanoMaticChrono by Saxon watch manufactory Glashütte Original will facilitate. Modern technology, great reliability, and an exceptionally designed dial lend this timekeeper a special place among today’s chronographs. The new platinum PanoMaticChrono model, limited to 100 pieces worldwide, makes one want to see even more.

Its look is characterized by a deep blue dial with an attractive carbon fiber pattern. The raised scale ring of the chronograph second hand, inlaid with luminous substance, dominates the entire design of the top half of the dial. The scale is flanked by the classic chronograph displays for subsidiary seconds and the 30-minute counter, which can be found on the lower level of the dial underneath the raised ring. For optimal legibility of all parameters, the zero point of both of these additional functions has been turned 60 degrees toward the chronograph second ring. Glashütte Original’s characteristic panorama date against a black background perfectly completes the successful design at 3 o’clock.

The white gold hour and minute hands inlaid with SuperLumiNova lend the off-center design of the lower dial level a special shine. All time displays and scales are inlaid with luminous substance except for the numerals at the 3, 5, 7, and 9 o’clock positions, thus lending the PanoMaticChrono a shining appearance even in the dark.

The 44 mm case crafted in completely satin-finished platinum houses Caliber 95, which was developed especially for the PanoMaticChrono. This specially developed mechanism contains a horological masterpiece: a patented step gear that adjusts itself to the kinetic behavior of its wearer. This is made possible by a targeted transmission of winding energy from the bilaterally winding rotor to the serially operating spring barrels.

Additionally, the newly developed mechanism’s step gear contains for the first time a small, quickly winding transmission wheel connecting the rotor and the spring barrel combined with a large, slowly winding one. Thus, the automatic gear is quickly able to transfer as much energy to the spring barrel as it needs to maintain a reliable rate, even when hardly in motion. If the spring barrel’s energy store is sufficiently filled, the rotor winds only unilaterally via the larger transmission ratio.
