A celebration of the 'Swinging Sixties'

In the 1960s, the world began to move. Young people set fashion trends that were eagerly taken up by designers. The colourful happenings in London’s Carnaby Street saw the debut of a new style rulebook whose followers wore slim ties, perfectly fitted suits, had razor-sharp hairstyles and danced to a soundtrack of popular beat music. Outfits were as original, classy and cool as possible. And it’s precisely this refined style and enthusiasm for handmade one-of-a-kind pieces that the Glashütte Original Sixties Chronograph Annual Edition 2021 brings to life.

This new reference's 42-mm stainless steel case is punctuated by an elaborately finished, handmade dial with an exceptional dégradé effect that travels from a bright green at the centre to a darker shade at the edge. The dial also features a finely textured surface made using the original tools and methods of the time. Two white Arabic numerals are enhanced by incised hour markers with luminous dots.

Inside, Glashütte Original's 39-34 automatic movement provides just the right rhythm. It drives the display of hour and minute and the small second, the second stop and the chronograph’s 30-minute counter reliably and with great precision. The manufactory movement beats at 4 Hz, and its individual components are delicately enhanced by hand – with the Glashütte stripes finish, for example, bevelled edges and polished screws. The watch is worn with a soft, grey-brown nubuck calfskin strap, and will be produced for one year only before being discontinued forever.
