Skeletonization is a long established tradition in Glashütte, now the Saxony based manufactory Glasshutte Original has created the beautiful Senator Manual Winding Skeletonized Edition.
This latest work features the firm’s own Calibre 49-18, complete with intricate mechanics and artfully executed engravings.
The elegant two-hand model comes in a highly polished 42mm red gold case which frames the skeletonized manual winding movement with its 40 hour power reserve drawing the eye to the refinement of the timepiece. The galvanized silver, skeletonized dial is decoratively enhanced by a black railroad minute ring and finely executed Roman numerals. Blued hour and minute hands indicate the time of day.
The precise skeletonization of the Senator Manual Winding Skeletonized Edition reveals the beauty of the manufactory Calibre 49-18. The filigreed workmanship is protected on the dial side by a sapphire crystal, which is anti-reflective on both sides, and by an anti-reflective sapphire crystal fitted to the case back, which gives the wearer an exceptional view of the movement’s elaborately finished components and engravings.
Hallmark characteristics of Glashütte watchmaking are all present in the watch including the winding wheels with double-sunburst decoration, screw-mounted gold chatons with blued screws, hand-engraved plates and the lavishly finished swan-neck fine adjustment. An elaborate process allows the gold engraved lettering and movement numbers to appear in distinct contrast to the rhodium plated movement.
The Senator Manual Winding Skeletonized Edition comes on a matt black Louisiana alligator leather strap with fold-over clasp in red gold, and is presented in a dark brown wooden case.
