LIKE A SUN
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.
A veritable ball of fire has descended upon the range, leaving its orange mark on the dials of the Sixties and the Sixties Date Panorama. 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.
The polished steel cases measure 39 (Sixties) and 42 mm in diameter (Sixties Date Panorama) and house the 39-52 and 39-47 calibers respectively, which both vibrate at a frequency of 4 Hz and offer a power reserve of 40 hours.
This fiery sun is worn on the wrist with a chocolate brown alligator strap completed with a steel pin buckle.
Price: 6,400 EUR (three hands) – 7,900 EUR (date)
