Once again, Glashütte Original won the hearts of Germanspeaking watch connoisseurs. In 2017, for the second year in a row, the Golden Balance in the top category of timepieces priced at over 25,000 Euro went to a masterpiece from the Saxon manufactory, the Senator Chronometer. Glashütte Original CEO Thomas Meier, who was present in Munich to receive the award for the Senator Chronometer, was given even more reason to celebrate: at the Awards Ceremony on 21 February the Senator Excellence took second place in the category for watches priced up to 10,000 Euros.
A total of 285 different models stood for election in five price categories – a call to action to which the readers of FOCUS, FOCUS Online and UHREN-MAGAZIN were only too happy to respond: altogether 25,544 participants cast their votes.
Inspired by the famous marine chronometers of the past, the Senator Chronometer combines two traditional elements from the history of Glashütte Original: the desire to perform at the highest level in the art of watchmaking, and a sense of timeless elegance in aesthetics.
The exceptional precision of its finely worked manual winding movement has been officially certified by the German Calibration Service. The white gold case, 42 mm in diameter, is set off by the midnight blue shade of the grained dial and a Louisiana Alligator leather bracelet.
