The winning secret of Senator’s excellent watches
Following the tradition of the Senator’s distinguished family, the new timepieces are designed with the highest requirements in terms of ease of use, durability, and aesthetics. In developing its movements, Glashütte Original always adheres to four basic principles: high levels of stability, precision, running time, and aesthetics.
Optimized design to achieve reliable stability with wear-resistant parts. The self-winding movement inside the case is snap-on, significantly improving its shock resistance. The extremely antimagnetic silicon hairspring dramatically improves the accuracy of the automatic winding movement, just like the card-free adjustment device. At the same time, the two-way automated winding system ensures that the watch is always in the optimal serpentine range.
Adhering to the concept of cherishing time like gold, Glashütte Original designers are particularly concerned about the power storage capacity of the Senator’s excellent watch. The Caliber 36 movement beats at a frequency of 4 Hz (equivalent to 28,800 vibrations per hour) and has a running time of at least 100 hours. This is thanks to the creative combination of an optimized large-diameter barrel and a small-diameter barrel, which extends the length of the mainspring and dramatically increases the number of winding turns. For all Glashütte Original watch products, aesthetics has always been one of its leading design principles, from the whole to the details.
Strict quality inspection
All Senator Excellence watches are subject to a 24-day quality inspection at the brand’s watch factory in Saxony, Germany – which is even more stringent than the German chronometer test. All watches in the Senator Excellence family must meet the exact high requirements, regardless of the type or number of complications. Every watch that passes the inspection is engraved with the “Q” mark on the case back, proving its excellent quality. Also, the precise measurement results during the testing process are recorded, and watch owners can check them by accessing Glashütte Original’s exclusive online platform.
The new Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar Watch and Senator Excellence Panorama Date Moon Phase Watch again confirm Glashütte Original’s solemn commitment to creating mechanical timepieces suitable for modern life. The new Senator Excellence watch will be on sale in Glashütte Original global stores and authorized dealer boutiques starting in October 2023.
