The Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date debuts at Baselworld 2014 in three versions with dials in galvanised ruthenium, galvanized silver or blue. All three timepieces feature the Seventies collection’s characteristic soft-cornered square stainless steel case and bezel.
The new Calibre 37-02 is conceived and built specifically as an integrated chronograph movement associating a unique combination of features: central stop seconds hand, 30 minute and 12 hour counters with flyback mechanism; small seconds counter with power reserve indicator (70 hours), and Glashütte Original’s compelling implementation of the Panorama Date display.
The automatic 4 Hz column wheel Calibre 37-02 has been designed to be as simple and compact as possible. Mounted within the Seventies Collection’s 40 x 40 mm stainless steel case, its moderate size and essential simplicity enhance its stability.
A stylish, elegant vintage look
The Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date renews the spirit of the collection inspired by the 1970s, presenting essential, elegant dial visuals: the small seconds dial with black and white power reserve indicator appears at 9 o’clock, the 30 minute counter at 3 o’clock. A somewhat smaller, very stylish hour counter shows Arabic numerals from 1 to 12 in a window centred just below 12 o'clock, harmoniously counter-balanced on the lower half of the dial by the Saxon watchmaker’s signature Panorama Date display.
The new manufactory chronograph presents characteristic features and finishing for which the Saxon watchmaker is famous: a sapphire crystal, antireflective on both sides; a second sapphire crystal set in the case back; the rotor and chronograph bridges mounted on the Glashütte three-quarter plate; Glashütte stripe finish on the automatic bridge, blued screws, and the central skeletonized 21-ct gold rotor with double-G logo.
A large choice of straps isavailable: blue, grey and black Louisiana Alligator leather straps complement the blue, ruthenium and silver dial models respectively; a functional black rubber strap is available for all three, as is the sporty stainless steel link bracelet.
