Glashütte Original invites you to enjoy an exceptionally stylish journey through time.
The popular Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date makes a name for itself once
again, giving its latest limited edition two of the decade’s favourite colours: sunny
yellow and bright turquoise. Our handmade timepieces celebrate the feeling for life
of a decade whose design, music and fashion trends enjoy cult status today. The
watches are powered by an elaborately finished manufactory movement with

automatic winding and flyback function.




A time of contrasts
It would be difficult to name a decade with a more laid-back attitude than the 1970s. Even
today, Hollywood productions and artists make use of the clothing, cars and furniture of this
decade when they’re looking to present a casual lifestyle enhanced by the sound of a rock
electric guitar, funk or disco music. It was a decade that set the stage for decisive aspects
of our society today: the first PC was launched, the modern environmental movement began,
traditional conventions were questioned. And on the silver screen and TV, great science
fiction classics created an aesthetic that was to make a lasting impression on the genre,
filled with the characteristic brown, yellow and green hues and curved forms of the time.
Sporty and colourful through summer 2021


The Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date models from Glashütte Original celebrate this
retro-futuristic style of the 1970s. The latest edition – a pair of chronographs – combines the
familiar round corners of the Seventies wristwatch with strong colours. While one of the dials
is coated entirely with yellow varnish, the second version was first given a refined sunray
finish prior to coating with a turquoise-black varnish with dégradé effect. Super-LumiNova
highlights on the hour and minute hands and on the appliques ensure optimal legibility in
the dark as well. A grey-brown calfskin-Nubuck leather strap rounds off the vintage look in
a stylish fashion.



Maximum stability and reliability
As laid-back as the design of this watch may be, it is an exceptionally precise timepiece. Its
automatic movement, which beats at a frequency of 4 Hz and features a column-wheel
switch, was designed to be compact in order to ensure maximum efficiency.

This permits the manufactory’s 37-02 movement to guarantee a high degree of precision,
reliability and low susceptibility to interference. In addition, a bilateral winding rotor ensures
a rapid delivery of energy; the power reserve is a generous 70 hours.
Refined and detailed surface finishings


A special sapphire crystal case back allows one to view the manufactory movement, which
presents a number of highly refined features. Among these are such characteristic elements
of Glashütte watchmaking as bevelled edges, polished steel components, blued screws and
the Glashütte three-quarter plate with Glashütte stripes finish, along with a skeletonised rotor
with 21-carat gold oscillating mass and the brand’s signature double-G logo.



The Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date takes up the cult designs of the 1970s and
gives them a contemporary look and feel. The two models mentioned here are limited to 100
pieces each, and are available worldwide from Glashütte Original Boutiques and selected
authorized dealers.

Not so sure about the yellow version.

The turquoise version is however very nice. Not for me however as the seventies chrono has proportions that do not fit my wrist.

Interesting.

I like the yellow

but I think a black leather/ rubber strap would be a better match with the black windows.
