In 2015 two different variations of the PanoMaticLunar are presented in nuanced new shades; of foremost interest is the red gold edition which features a dial in a matt black tone, hour, minute and second hands in gold as well as 9 gold hour indexes. The moon phase display presents stars and a golden moon set against a silver sky.

The stainless steel version presents the characteristic dial visuals in an intense shade of blue – the galvanised dial features silver indexes applied by hand and white gold hands indicating hour, minutes and small seconds.

The PanoMaticLunar models present the characteristic off-centre displays in a well thought out spatial arrangement. The areas for hour/minute indicators and the small seconds display lie on a vertical axis within the left half of the dial, while the Panorama Date and the splendid moon phase display are positioned at the lower and upper right, respectively. The placement of the individual displays was inspired by the “Golden Ratio” – the legendary law of aesthetic harmony.

The PanoMaticLunar models are driven by the Saxon manufactory's Calibre 90-02 – a mechanical automatic movement with 47 jewels and a 42-hour power reserve. The sapphire crystal case back offers an unobstructed view into the refined beauty of the movement and its characteristic Glashütte elements including the three-quarter plate with Glashütte stripe finish, the off-centre rotor with oscillating weight in 21-ct gold, blued screws and the hand-engraved balance cock with duplex swan-neck fine adjustment.

The red gold model is offered with a choice of either a matt black Louisiana Alligator leather strap or a Louisiana Alligator nubuck leather strap, while the stainless steel version can be worn with a dark blue calf's leather or Louisiana Alligator nubuck leather strap.
