A breath of eternity
A new limited-edition Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar in rose opaline and dark blue leather strap.

Zoom in (real dimensions: 2362 x 1713)

Glashütte Original’s perpetual calendar lifts timekeeping into the realm of art. In its
latest version this mechanical masterpiece is already a rarity: the new Senator
Excellence Perpetual Calendar with a rose opaline dial and a dark blue leather strap
will be issued in a limited edition of only 100 pieces. The mechanisms in motion within
the virtuoso composition are no less compelling than the watch’s external beauty. A
hand-crafted and finely finished automatic movement from the ateliers of the
renowned Saxon manufactory honours every day of the year – from now to eternity

Harmonious colours: rose opaline meets dark blue
The latest timepiece from German watchmaker Glashütte Original adds a modern and
sophisticated couple to the classic business partners black/white and grey/brown: rose/dark
blue! The galvanic rose opaline dial is crafted and decorated in an elaborate process with
numerous individual steps. Its silken hue contrasts splendidly with the hand-mounted blue
hour appliques, which in this case consist exclusively of Roman numerals. The deep blue
hue is taken up by the finely stepped calendar windows and moon phase display, and by
the elegant poire hands and Louisiana alligator leather strap.

The Perpetual Calendar: precision without compromise
The perpetual calendar grand complication has it all. Day of the week? It goes without
saying. Panorama Date? A Glashütte Original specialty. Month and leap year? Absolutely!
All calendar indications are precisely tailored to suit the various lengths of the months,
lending the watch a new look day after day. Thanks to its astonishing mechanical memory,
Glashütte Original‘s Perpetual Calendar won’t need to be reset (in theory, at least) until the
year 2100 – which in timekeeping, as in life, amounts to nothing less than a minor eternity.

Made in Glashütte: a watch with character
As a true child of its Glashütte home, the Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar combines
filigree decoration, sophisticated mechanics and robust workmanship. The transparent
sapphire crystal case back offers a clear view of the highly refined finishing of the automatic
movement, its skeletonized rotor and skeletonized Double-G, which renders the rotor even
more delicate. Watch connoisseurs will discover additional typical Glashütte decorations
and construction features: the characteristic three-quarter plate with refined Glashütte stripe
finish, the hand-engraved balance cock, delicate perlage finishing, blued screws and fine
decorative finishes on the wheels and rotor track.

A first class movement: the manufactory calibre 36-12
The priority governing development of this movement was to maximise user friendliness and
ease of maintenance. A silicon balance spring guarantees exceptional precision, while a
single spring barrel offers a power reserve of more than 100 hours. Robust stability is
assured thanks to an innovative bayonet mounting, which secures the movement in the
case. In addition, a conscious effort was made to make it easy to use the watch: the practical
universal corrector allows the wearer to set the day, date and month at the same time –
which may seldom prove necessary, since the exceptional power reserve maintains the
correct interplay of the displays for a long time, even after the watch is set down.
A noble family: Excellence à la Glashütte Original

All models in the Senator Excellence family score points for exceptional precision, stability,
running time and beauty. And they all back up their qualities with an exclusive certificate
confirming that each and every Senator Excellence has undergone 24 days of
comprehensive testing in the Saxon manufactory. A special engraving on the case back
guarantees the quality of each watch. An exclusive online portal also gives owners access
to detailed test scores for their watch along with information regarding the individual test
The new Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar in rose opaline and dark blue is limited to
100 pieces and available from end of October exclusively at Glashütte Original Boutiques
and authorised dealers.
