Glashutte Original Senator Rattrapante: Rose Gold or Platinum?

Feb 02, 2019,11:24 AM

For me, the choice is clear as I am biased when it comes to platinum cases and ruthenium dial, one of my favorite combination. 

But the rose gold version doesn't lack charm. 

It doesn't have the level of finishings of the new Montblanc 1858 Split Seconds, Patek 5370P, but still, not the same price. 

And not a cheap quality watch, either. 

So, rose gold or platinum for you?

In both metals, the Senator Rattrapante is a grand watch. How many years has it been since this metal was in production? 8 - 10 years?

Rose Gold or Platinum

I like the RG in the photos but i seem to be in the minority. Maybe in person the Platinum would be my choice. But hey they are both nice and the Rattapante complication really makes the watch special.

I am conservative, and still adhere to the principle that a watch should be legible. Therefore pink gold....

... because the heat blued hands above the silver dial offer a good contrast whereas the silver (rhodium?) hands and the grey dial are a lousy combination, as far as legibility is concerned. Additionally, the quasi-inverse-panda configuration tries to exp... 

completely agree. I sold mine.

I had the platinum Version but sold it (to a fellow PuristS member) but the poor ligibility drove me crazy. That's why I would take the Gold one. stere

Pt of course...

Red gold for me!

My favorite case material. You could say red gold is my material de predilection. It gives watches something that adds to the magic especially with white or balck dials.

RG for me - hands and crown are the big difference

The hour hand all but disappears in the picture of the platinum. But the gorgeous blue hour and minute hand of the rose are perfect. I also like how the big date blends into the background in the rg one, but sticks out quite a bit on the platinum one. Fin... 

The platinum is killer

With the grey dial, that looks hot. If i had the choose between the two. Though personally, why not spend a little more to get the top flight finishing of the MB? I also think the Minerva movement looks nicer than the GO. Understood on setting a watch bud... 

the bronze i think is fairly unique, with some manufacturers making LE on bronze casing. I'm a fan of titanium, so I could see the case where you want to wait for more case options.

I've been on the hunt for a MW rattrapante sometime, either too much $$ or at a lower px uninteresting movement or not finished well is like solving for the convex hull problem.
