A fairly rare Glashütte Original Senator Perpetual calendar and many photos.

I have had this in my collection and always been fond of it although never wore it. Today I strapped it on. It’s one of only 50. Platinum and even the buckle is full platinum. It has nice weight to it. I love that the case is mostly all satin finished so it’s pretty under the radar. Also easy to read as the windows make it easier and also the big date. The dot below the logo changes color from black to yellow to white and finally to the leap year which is red colored. It’s 39mm and a really nice size. The weight feels good. Hope you enjoy this “blast from the past.” I hope Jocke likes it also!

never seen it before. Later GO use Caliber 100 instead of 39. The blue stone at the crown indicate that is a Platinum watch.

Stunning, Mr. T

I have seen photos of this piece before, never knew it was such a small edition. What a cool piece to own.

Lovely watch Ed, looks very somber and self-assured

I think my moonphase is from that same era, brushed case too. I must have gotten it in early 2000's Original dial The dial was replaced at service due to some corrosion, and the replacement was different, with borders around the date and moon apertures. I...  

Wow that’s a beautiful watch, Mike.

It looks great in gold. Is that yellow or rose? Yes I think I got this watch around 2000. My how time flies. It runs great. Not sure if the dial is platinum but it does look like that. Perhaps it’s coated. I will try to find out. Thanks for all your photo... 

And to you -- I hope you survived the Big Storm Front

Apparently the Northwest didn't take "all its share" because there was plenty left to wet down our neighborhood 1000 miles south. The GO is yellow gold. And thanks for reading my stuff. Cheers, Mike
