Glashütte Original Debuts Stylish Panorama Date Chronograph
The updated Seventies Chronograph Panorama is available in two new breezy colors.
You can certainly debate for decades about which very decade was most influential in the world of modern watchmaking, but the ’70s have a very strong argument going for them. It’s part of what makes the latest Glashütte Original launch so impressive, with two vibrant models offering a new take on a classic.
The meticulous and thoughtful German watchmaker offers two precisely designed updates to the Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date, notably available in two breezy colors that’ll stand out stylishly on any wrist to end summer.
The distinctive square dial of the Seventies Chronograph Panorama now comes in Disco Blue or Vibing Orange, either of which would look right at home worn on a coastal getaway or with a laidback tan linen suit at a summer wedding.
Of course, since only 100 editions of each ultra-sharp yet sporty watch are available worldwide, you’ll certainly want to make the most of your timepiece the rest of the year, too.
Blending the sporty and stylish with the refined is something of a specialty for the company, including a colorful spring update to its SeaQ Panorama Date Watch.
If you were lucky enough to score one with a head-turning “Reed Green” dial, consider either of these watches a worthy addition to a colorful watch collection.
Of the seriously cool new timepieces, Glashütte Original wisely notes that “these models are modern interpretations of the two dynamic decades that changed the world forever.”
The specs are as timeless as that sentiment, boasting a polished stainless steel case and bracelet, plus a highly wearable 40mm case diameter.
A 70-hour power reserve and original in-house movement dial in performance and precision, while the option to swap out the links for a truly sporty black rubber strap only amplifies the versatility of this covetable new release.
Either the Disco Blue or Vibing Orange colorways are a fitting homage to the 1970s, with plenty of fun and eye-catching end-of-summer style to go around.
Tread carefully, though: This timepiece doesn’t come lightly, retailing for a suggested price of $14,900. Given that the inspiration for Glashütte Original’s latest has been about five decades in the making, you could argue the price point is more than fair.
