Jaeger-LeCoultre: Don‘t you think that is the 40 that breaks the pattern?

Ob both subdials all number except one are displayed as upright as possible. Only the 40 on the seconds subdial is looking down. Weird that they did not see this Initially I hated this kind of mistakes because I thought that an expensive watch had to be perfect in all regards. In the meantime I acce

Glashütte Original: The best Navigator they ever made.

If only they could decide to make a clean B-Uhr (A dial. No date) the next member of the „Spezialist“ line....

Glashütte Original: This looks good to me from the pics.

Usually I am not a fan if too much engraving. It tends to get too baroque for my taste. But here the engraved area hits the clean, modern lines of the updated Pano design and is nicely counterbalanced. One could see this watch as a symbol for the modern/traditional duality of the brand G.O. (as it i

Glashütte Original: This shot has brought my attention to the 8Hz Chronometer.

That is for sure. The Senator Chronometer was my desire since it was launched in 2009. I did not add any other G.O. to my collection until I was able and ready to afford the Chronometer. The 8Hz Chronometer was a more considered choice. And it turned out to become the better the more I wear it. The

Glashütte Original: Mine is very fine.

After it grew a little tired of its fine Alligator shoes which did not exactly fit its Chronometer DNA it asked for something less formal and closer to a ships mahagony and brass. It got a calf skin strap hand made in Bavaria by a little manufacture that also makes straps for NOMOS. (In reality t lo

Glashütte Original: I would bet against the bezel to reappear on other models.

Why? Because I think that the concave rehaut and especially the concave and "fluted" outer bezel are used on this LE to emphasize the Ship Chronometer theme of the Senator Chronometer to an extent that maybe only a few collectors would appreciate. That might explain the limitation of the edition to

Glashütte Original: Yeah, a pity that the timing was not right for you budget-wise.

I know how much ready you are for that watch

Glashütte Original: Oh, yes. The best thing you could have done, I think.

Had I been able to swap my „normal“ WG Chronometer for this one I would have done without hesitation too.

Glashütte Original: That looks like the best iteration so far.

Being the happy owner of a WG Senator Chronometer and of a GUB Ship Chronometer i can only say that G.O. nailed it with this one. My only very small concern is that the movement finish is a little off target. It is much closer to a Dornblüth: than to a GUB Chronometer with its yellow gold plated pla
