Where art and precision marine chronometry meet

This Senator Excellence PerPetual Calendar demonstrates its incomparable sense of tact in a combination of silver-grey and blue that emulates the effervescent spray of the high seas. Built around a 42 mm stainless steel case with perfectly satin-finished and polished surfaces and punctuated by a dial cast in cool silver-grey and deep blue, this Senator Chronometer combines traditional finishing methods with modern technologies and contemporary design. The dial and parts of the manual winding calibre are silver-plated by friction. In this elaborate process, fine silver powder, salt and water are applied by hand, giving the surface a fine, shimmering structure. These elements are then galvanised in grey. Polished and blued hands and appliques complete the design.

In the past, marine chronometers were used for navigation on the high seas, and chronometers from Glashütte achieved great renown worldwide — history which inspired the creation of this particular reference. The high standards of quality and performance were also adopted: In a strictly controlled process, each model is tested for 15 days in five positions and three temperatures by the independent Thuringian Weights and Measures Office in order to continue the great tradition of precision timepieces from Glashütte. A chronometer certificate is included with the watch. 

The manufactory calibre is equipped with a sophisticated perpetual calendar complication, with weekday, month, and annual cycle with moonphase display and Glashütte Original's signature panorama date display. The calibre 36-12 is also a visual delight. Through the sapphire crystal case back, the finely finished features of the Glashütte art of watchmaking can easily be recognised: the characteristic three-quarter plate, screw-mounted gold chatons and the hand-engraved balance cock.
