glashutte original sixties 2019


A veritable ball of fire graces the dial of two new watches from the Saxony-based brand, combining the full force of typical 1960s design. A shade which makes your wrist pop!

The Sixties collection by Glashütte Original stands out for its styling from the 1960s, a period filled with creative freedom in all areas. In 2018, it wooed watch and design aficionados with a vibrant shade of green covering the face of two of its timepieces. The Saxony-based brand have done it again, this time opting for the warm glow of a summer sun, once again available in a duo both regulated by mechanical self-winding movements.

Each disk is embossed using a press to obtain this characteristic structure in relief, then galvanized in a golden hue before being lacquered in red and black and then kiln-fired to burn in the colors. The result? The golden yellow at the center flows over the contours blending into an orange-red before turning carmine red and black at the edge of the domed dial. A trio of silver baton-style hands indicate the hours, minutes and seconds, completed by a large window at 6 o’clock which displays the date in white on a black background in one of the two models.

This fiery sun is worn on the wrist with a chocolate brown alligator strap completed with a steel pin buckle.
