Glashütte Original Senator Chronometer . . .

Nov 20, 2023,02:18 AM

This latest iteration was launched back in August in white gold with dark blue Roman numerals:

I've visited multiple ADs in the hopes to see one in the metal. Well, that finally occurred yesterday:

The press release mentions a silver dial. However, from the photos I've seen to date, it comes across as an off-white color. But it's more of a gunmetal color, which has a grained texture:

I had previously seen the blue dial iteration a few times:

There are some refinements with this latest addition. The case height has been reduced from 12.6mm to 11.4mm. In addition, you can barely see in the photo below there is a subtle knurled texture around the bezel:

This photo 'borrowed' from the web captures this detail:

This one really tugs at my heart. Granted, I would prefer a stainless steel edition. But this one has me seriously considering the possibility of adding it to my collection!😍😍😍

Thanks for looking!🥂

The white gold case even looks like it was yellow gold due

to the reflexion of the store’s lighting.

Unfortunately, I noticed that after I left the AD!

Thanks for the live photos. The dial has a real aged appearance.

Appropriate for a ship's chronometer!

The dial actually matches the 3/4 plate on the movement!

Unfortunately, I couldn’t get a good shot with the plastic on the back! Thanks for looking, Michael!🥂

Great to see this in "live." There was some good YouTube coverage of it as well. I really liked the dark blue dial when I handled that variant. This one doesn't sell me with the date window background, but the hands are amazing.

First and foremost, welcome to WPS!

I've seen that YouTube review multiple times over the last few days! It really highlights the dial's unique look in natural light. He did a great job highlighting its unique features as well. It would have been great to see for myself how it looks in natu... 

Thank you!
