Description:

2012 Baselworld - Glashutte Original reveals a new version of the enduring & beautiful Senator Observer in a polished Stainless steel case.
Observation watches, known more often as ‘deck watches’ were used by navigation officers to help determine a ship’s position at sea.
The precision and reliability of its observation watches - in particular under extreme weather conditions - made them indispensable instruments for navigation officers, pilots, and pioneering explorers such as Roald Amundsen, who took a number of Julius Assmann observation watches with him on his legendary expedition to the South Pole in 1911.
Perpetuating the superb dial designs of all Glashutte Original watches, the Senator Observer is stunning.
One could not ask for a more balanced and legible dial.
The lacquered dial is a perfect backdrop for the sub dials & numerals - elegant enough for a dress watch and yet perfectly at home on the wrist for everyday wear.
The dial is built up slowly from three separate layers of lacquer and present a finely textured, grained surface and shows a subsidiary seconds dial at 9 o’clock and the power reserve display at 3 o’clock.
Glashutte Original’s compelling panorama date display features prominently at 6 o’clock.
Steel hands and a milled railroad chapter ring frame the absolutely classically laid out dial which also features white Arabic numerals.
At the heart is the automatic Caliber 100-14, an exquisitely finished self-winding movement with a 55 hour power reserve (+/- 10%).
Traditional observation watches used hand-wound movements; Glashutte Original has chosen to outfit this Senator Observer with a contemporary automatic movement
The ‘Ab Auf’ indicator on the dial represents a true power reserve, rather than a simple indication of running time.
The exquisite finishing of the automatic Caliber 100-14 is easily visible through the sapphire case back.
The movement features the characteristic divided three-quarter plate with Glashutte ribbing, polished steel components and beveled edges that distinguish high end mechanical watches from Glashutte Original.
Strap options are Louisiana leather, calfskin leather or stainless steel bracelet
Water resistant to 50 meters / 165 feet
