For 2014, Glashütte Original celebrates the chronograph and its new manufacture Calibre 37 column wheel chronograph movement made entirely in Glashütte. With a 70-hour power reserve, the new movement features the longest power reserve for the manufactory and is especially notable since this is managed with one spring barrel. The new Calibre 37 debuts in two new models, the elegant Senator Chronograph Panorama Date and the sporty Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date.

Also new is the PanoMaticInverse that makes its automatic movement with dual swan-neck regulator visible on the dial. Then, Glashütte Original highlights its finishing expertise with the beautiful Senator Manual Winding Skeletonised Edition.

For all the new models, special emphasis is placed on the dial quality. Having acquired its own dial production factory last year, Glashütte Original is now able to finish its dials with high-grade aesthetics such as traditional German frosted silver, brushed sunray finishing, and even small details such as matching the same colour for the date wheel as the dial.

Senator Chronograph Panorama Date
Conceived as a permanent part of the Senator collection, the new Senator Chronograph Panorama Date is available two variation. The first features an 18-carat red gold case that measures 42mm x 14mm with a slim bezel that frames a lacquered silver grained dial. Retail is $31,500.

The second variation features a platinum case that measures 42mm x 14mm with slim bezel that frames a solid gold dial with a frosted silver finish. The frosted silver dial is achieved through a traditional German hand-finishing technique known as “silver grinding” (von Hand anreibeversilbert). This labour-intensive technique requires applying a wet mixture of fine silver polish and salt with a boars brush onto the gold dial plate to cause a chemical reaction that results in a lustrous, frosted finish. Retail is $55,600.

The new Calibre 37-01 is a 65-jewel, fully integrated column wheel chronograph movements made in the Glashütte Original manufactory in Glashütte. The chronograph movement features a central chronograph hand with flyback function, a 12-hour counter at 12 o’clock, a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock and a subsidiary seconds with integrated 70-hour power reserve indicator at 9 o’clock. The signature Panorama Date display is located at 6 o’clock. The hand finished movement has bevelled and polished edges, polished steel parts, heat-blued screws, Glashütte stripes on the plate, and a skeletonised rotor with 21-carat gold oscillation weight.

The new Calibre 37-01 chronograph movement is greatly simplified with fewer component parts. The movement features a bi-directional rotor and the 70-hour power reserve is managed by a single spring barrel. The regulation is performed using four gold screws on the balance rim. The absence of a regulator on the spring allows the movement to run continuously over a much longer period of time, resulting in increased precision.
