Senator Chronograph – The Capital Edition: Urban. Striking. Precise.

Glashütte Original presents special limited edition in Berlin


Berlin, just a few hours before one of the biggest film festivals in the world begins: the perfect setting for the Senator Chronograph – The Capital Edition. This special edition, to be launched by

Glashütte Original during the 68th Berlinale, reflects the urban gentleman's attitude to life. The stylish and distinctive Senator Chronograph Panorama Date is presented in a stainless steel edition of 100,

and a red gold version limited to 25 pieces. With their smoky grey dials in a “Bourbon Grey” hue, both models bring the inimitable flair of the big city to the wrist. A platinum version of the watch, strictly

limited to only 5 pieces worldwide, presents yet another style with a striking dial in “Dry Silver”.



Dynamic capital, inspirational metropolis and international stage: Berlin offers the perfect backdrop for the premiere of a special new limited edition, which Glashütte Original is set to launch during the 68th Berlin International Film Festival.

The Senator Chronograph – The Capital Edition reflects the urban attitude to life in this big, vibrant city, and combines reliable precision with a robust readiness for everyday life.



“Engineering Made in Germany” meets big-city attitude


The Capital Edition fits perfectly into the energy-charged atmosphere of Berlin and the Berlinale – since it does indeed give the Senator Chronograph Panorama Date a striking new look.


The dials, fashioned in-house, appeal through their especially developed hues “Bourbon Grey” for the models in stainless steel and red gold, and “Dry Silver” for the strictly limited platinum version.

All variants capture everyone's eye with beige, white and blue details. In the dark, Super-LumiNova highlighting lends an impressive green glow to the white gold hour, minute and stop seconds hands, the Roman numerals

at hours 6 and 12, and the hour indexes, assuring optimal legibility throughout those long, long nights in the capital city.



Made for the urban gentleman


The everyday reliability of its functions and its exceptional design make the Senator Chronograph – The Capital Edition the perfect companion for contemporary trendsetters.

As always, the Saxon manufactory has paid particular attention to sophisticated details: the deep blue totalizers around the chronograph displays appear in stylish contrast to the dial's elegant grey. Shimmering silver rings circumscribe the totalizers,

setting additional visual accents. A polished and satin-brushed, 42 mm stainless steel or red gold case frames the “Bourbon Grey” dial, while the platinum case is a perfect match for the dial in “Dry Silver”.


White gold hands sweep stylishly over the dials on all three versions of the watch. The characteristic Glashütte Original Panorama Date is given clear pride of place at 6 o'clock, while the power reserve display is set discreetly within the small seconds.

The contrasting white stitching of the calfskin strap in brown or blue is a further, original element of style. The metal bracelet's patented 8-step fine adjustment mechanism guarantees optimal comfort for the gentleman wearing the stainless steel version of the watch.

The red gold and platinum versions of the Senator Chronograph – The Capital Edition come in a special collector’s box, in which an additional strap will be included.



Calibre 37: Robust, reliable and precise


Inside The Senator Chronograph – The Capital Edition one finds, as in all Senator Chronograph Panorama Date models, the manufactory Calibre 37 movement. The innovative flyback chronograph with 4 Hertz automatic movement

and column wheel mechanism was developed to assure the highest standards in terms of stability, aesthetics, precision and ease of maintenance. And a look through the integrated chronograph's sapphire crystal case back reveals

all the classic features of a Glashütte watch, including the characteristic three-quarter plate, the screw balance with four adjustment screws, the swan-neck fine adjustment and the skeletonized rotor with its 21-carat gold oscillating mass.

Am I missing dimensions in the information above, I recall a similar version released last year with the blue hands and markers being 44-45mm? Ian

I stand corrected.

Very cool, very unique. Well done Glashutte!

We could never criticize Glashutte Original for making too many dial and metal combinations "of the same watch", as we read on so many of our forums. This brand does not do it like that. But, to see such refreshing and unique dials on a familiar watch, al...

But it works amazingly well. Love the combo, especially gold on the blue strap.

I prefer the version with the black dial

As stated before, I prefer the current version

I find the dial a hair too busy. I would indeed swap the big date with the subdial at 12, and replace the roman numerals by markers. Otherwise, a nice watch.
