    The German arm of the Swatch Group

    Glashütte Original Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date Limited-Edition Watches In Gray And Green

    OCT 18, 2019 — BY ROB NUDDS

    In the recent past, Glashütte Original has enjoyed significant success with brightly colored dials. Thus, it makes perfect sense for the German arm of the Swatch Group to roll the dice once more on this trend. By releasing the Glashütte Original Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date Limited-Edition watches in gray and green, the company spruces up a successful collection that could always use more variety. Gray dials have been used before, but only with a sunray finish. This degradé fade is not only very current and a strong look for the quasi-square watch, but it also backs-up its more exciting green counterpart while offering a muted alternative.


    Glashütte Original is one of the few watch manufactories to make its own dials. The production of highly refined dials from Glashütte Original takes place in our in-house dial manufactory, located 600 km away in Pforzheim.

    Apparently, the new Glashütte Original Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date limited-edition watches are inspired by the landscape and sky that surrounds the small Saxon town GO calls home. Having worked in Glashütte for three years, I can attest to the greenery (which is rife, thanks to a weird microclimate that is quite happy to throw four seasons at you in 24 hours for no good reason at all). The gray is found in the rocky bluffs of the Ore Mountains that encircle the town and stretch southward toward the nearby Czech border. That, and the town’s rich history of tin and silver mining, the traces of which still litter the environment.

      Chronograph in a fascinating colour-play

      Special limited edition Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date in green and grey

      The Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date from Glashütte Original continues to enjoy an enthusiastic reception five years it was first presented to friends of fine watches around the world. This should come as no surprise, as it combines the perfection of genuine manufactory production with the rich traditions of Glashütte watchmaking. And today the successful chronograph presents another facet, in two limited editions of 100 pieces each: equipped with fascinating dials in green and grey, the new versions pay special tribute to the landscape that has inspired the work of Glashütte’s watchmakers for over 170 years. Glashütte Original is located in the centre of Glashütte, a small town set in a valley in Saxony’s Ore Mountains; for hundreds of years the town was shaped by its principle activity, mining. Today the manufactory is surrounded by thick forests, rich green meadows, steep rocky outcrops, moss-covered stone, and innumerable traces of tin and silver mining. Green and grey are thus the dominant colours of this natural backdrop to everyday life in the town.

      The new dials: inspired by the region’s play of colours
      The dials of the special limited edition of the Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date take up the colour-play characteristic of the region and its impressive natural landscape. This successful chronograph’s striking new green and grey faces are fashioned in the watchmaker’s in-house dial manufactory in Pforzheim. There they are also ennobled with the sophisticated dégradé effect, deployed with sensational effect on the latest models of the Sixties line as well: the lighter hues at the centre of the dial shade gradually into darker nuances at the circumference.

      As a first step in creating the dégradé effect, the experts at Glashütte Original’s dial manufactory in Pforzheim use rotating brass brushes to apply an elegant sunray finish. After the dials are galvanized, green or grey lacquer is applied in several passes. In a final step, black lacquer is carefully applied at varying angles using a hand-held spray gun, which results in individual colour flows unique to each watch. The lacquer-coated dials are then fired in a kiln to burn in the colour.

      Fresh design elements
      This striking timepiece makes a brilliant impression – in its new look as well – with the proven arrangement of the chronograph displays: central stop seconds, 30-minute and 12-hour counters with flyback mechanism, small second, power reserve display as well as the characteristic Panorama Date. The rhodium-plated rod indexes give the timepiece a clean, clear look.

      The new timepieces are framed by a streamlined, stainless steel case holding the Calibre 37-02 chronograph movement: an automatic 4 Hz column wheel movement with 70-hour power reserve. Thanks to its stable and compact construction, it is remarkably impervious to interference. Its finely finished elements, characteristic of Glashütte watchmaking, are easily admired through the special sapphire crystal case back.

      The Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date – Limited Edition features a new, grey-brown calf nubuck leather strap that takes up the shaded colourings of the dial in an elegant fashion, rounding off both models‘ natural play of colours.

        totally sweet, if you haven't seen GO dials in person you're missing out. They are amazing, the green here is killer. They have a periwinkle type blue dial too that is out of this world.

          They make some amazing looking dials that rival the best of Seiko IMO.
