Glashütte Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar Bucherer Blue first review

 By: christianch : July 16th, 2021-22:21
I am happy to joing the GO family with the Glashütte Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar Bucherer Blue. I liked this watch very much since the release in 2019! Then the pandemic came and well I am glad I could still find one!

The dial of this version is in "Bucherer Blue" and with a nice grained structure. 

The sword hands are different than the regular model and the hours markers are also modern vs the roman of the regular edition 


The rubber strap is very comfortable and contaions a pattern to evoke the number 8 from the year of Bucherer foundation (1888) 

The watch is powered by the in-house caliber 36-02 a modern certified chronometer movement with 100 hour of power reserve.

The blue really matches the Bucherer bag smile 

I am obviously biased but I love everything about this watch which is a great value for this complication. Also, compared to my JLC perpetual, the date is much more readable and it changes very
quickly at midnight.  It comes also with the leather strap but the rubber one is very comfortable. 

how do you like it ? smile 

I like it a lot! That blue dial (and the rubber strap) really grab my attention. Congratulations!

I love the complication and this is one the most readable big dates (if not the most readable) in a perpertual calendar smile
