Glashuette Original Senator Excellence Panorama Date

Sometimes a classic watch is anything but ordinary. Let’s take a close look at a watch with a timeless design from a German watchmaker who has held his own against most luxury Swiss watchmakers.

From the Saxon region in Germany, Glashuette Original Senator Chronograph Panorama Date shares their little watchmaking town with a few more watchmakers par excellence such as A. Lange & Sohne, and the most recent major player in the German watchmaking arena; Nomos. Let’s take a close look at their Glashutte Senator Panorama Date to explain what makes this wristwatch the special timepiece that it is.
As part of Glashutte Original’s Quintessential collection, the Senator Panorama Date series has a special place. Most of the other watches in the Glashutte Quintessentials collection have busier-looking dials which include sub-dials, power reserves, and such.

However, the Glashuette Original Senator Chronograph Panorama Date is a three-hand watch that has a stronger semblance to the watches found in the Senator Excellence collection and was designed with a clean and lean classic-looking off-white/cream colored dial. The black Roman numerals are finely printed and seem to hang from the railroad seconds track which wraps around the perimeter of the dial.

One of the most striking features of this watch is its elegantly shaped hands. The hour hand has an elongated spade shape while the minute’s hand has an oblong hourglass shape. The second hand is slender and has a Glashutte Original logo as a counterweight on the other end. The same hand design combination can be found in the Glashutte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar.

Even more striking than the carefully crafted shapely hands is the hue of blued steel. This beautiful shade of blue is achieved through a thermal reaction wherein which the steel is evenly heated using a process that changes its color.
Between the 4 and 5 o’clock positions on the dial, there is the date aperture which displays the date using a stately bold serif font. The date mechanism uses a double-disc to function. The solid 18kt rose gold case has a diameter of 40mm which is a conservative men’s size for today’s growing trend of larger watches. The rose gold case is 11.52mm thick and tucks away nicely underneath a shirt cuff. One nice feature that the GO Senator Panorama Date offers is a recessed seconds-reset button which is discreetly located on the side of the case at the 8 o’clock position and can be pushed using a special stylus tool that comes with the watch.
This watch is powered by an in-house Glashuette Original Senator Chronograph Panorama Date caliber 100-03 movement which beats at 28,800 VpH, contains 51 jewels, and has a power reserve of about 55 hours when fully wound.

As with just about every Glashutte caliber you can expect some impressive craftsmanship and skilled finishing on the movement which you can see through the transparent sapphire crystal case back. The rotor that provides the bi-directional automatic winding has a skeletonized emblem with the letter G back-to-back in gold. There is also a weighted 21kt gold strip at the edge of the rotor which is beautifully finished with striped finishing which can also be found on the 3-quarter plate. Below is a photo of the 100-03 caliber as seen through the sapphire crystal transparent case back of the stainless steel model # 100-03-32-42-04. Pay attention to how the striped finishing causes light to refract off the movement and light it up. It really adds to the magnificence of the caliber.
One of the things that I have always found fascinating about mechanical watch calibers made in Glashutte is the flashes of vibrant colors that are found on the caliber. The blued screws to the pink ruby jewel bearings and even the polished and finished steel and gold. It all provides for a movement that looks more like a piece of fine art and less like a micromechanical engine.

The rose gold model depicted at the beginning of this post is the reference number 100-03-32-45-04 and comes on a black alligator leather strap with a folding buckle in a matching 18kt rose gold. This model has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $19,500 but can be purchased here at a discounted price.

There is also a stainless-steel model that has reference number 100-03-32-42-04 which is hard to come by these days since this series is being phased out and replaced with a newer version which is now being placed in the Senator Excellence collection called the Senator Excellence Panorama Date. It has a slightly different look to the dial which uses both index hour markers and Roman numerals and is powered by a newer movement, the 36-03, which has a better power reserve.

The 100-03-32-42-04 had an MSRP of $8,900 and we happen to have one left in unworn/brand new condition and is currently selling a few thousand less than the MSRP. Both models (the stainless steel 100-03-32-42-04 and the rose gold 100-03-32-45-04) use the same exact spectacular 100-03 self-winding movement. The only difference between the two watches is the case material. One is stainless steel while the other is rose gold.

In summation, this collection has some very beautiful watches and no matter which model you choose, you will own a piece of fine horology, German precision engineering, and artisanal craftsmanship.

Irecently had an excellent opportunity to try out a brand new timepiece from German-based watchmaker Glashütte Original. The brand introduced the Senator Excellence collection back in 2016, and at Baselworld this year it added more options which are less formal than the first editions. It was apparent to Glashütte Original that, while very handsome to look at, the first watches with their imposing Roman numerals were a lot less appealing to the younger market. To change this, they created a watch which has become one of my personal favourite dress watches, here’s my take on the Senator Excellence Panorama Date Moon Phase. While those Roman numeral versions are also available in 18K red gold, these new pieces are only available in steel for now, though I suspect a gold version may come along in the future, even white gold perhaps.
The first thing I noticed about it upon taking it out of the FedEx box was just how light it is for the size of the case. The watch weighs in at 86 grams on our patented VSS (Very Scientific (kitchen) Scales), despite this, the stainless steel case is 42mm in diameter, polished on the bezel and lugs and brushed on the sides. It would be interesting to see what the watch is like when put on the stainless steel multi-link bracelet, but then I would have missed out on the awesome leather strap. There’ll be more on that in a bit.
The dial is very clean, legible and oh-so German in design. Only the bare essentials here, there’s not much writing, and the Glashütte Original logo is quite small. Above that logo is the moon phase display. The moon phase itself is very accurate, requiring a reset only once every 122 years. It contrasts with the blue of the dial quite well, as the disk is silver, but this does make the tiny stars quite hard to make out, I know they are microscopic, but collectors of such fine timepieces enjoy examining them with a loupe. The moon itself is brilliantly polished and inverse domed in shape, this isn’t visible to the naked eye, but it does show up with a macro lens.

Glashütte Original Seventies Chronograph Panorama

Like many other seasoned watch lovers, my affection for German watch maker Glashütte Original runs deep. It’s not just the classic yet spirited designs that tend to define the brand which are appealing, but it is also the enduring dedication to functionality and mechanical excellence that the region is known for. Yes, like many people who know watches well, I’m a big fan of what Glashütte in Saxony lends to the world of contemporary watches. So let’s look at one of the brand’s more avant-garde watches, yet one that is totally wearable on a daily basis, the Glashütte Original Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date reference 1-37-02-03-02-70 with the blue dial on matching steel bracelet.
I recall first putting a Glashütte Original Seventies watch on my wrist back when the brand released the collection in 2011. I had seen the watch in pictures prior to trying it out and was pleasantly surprised how much more I liked it when wearing it than the images would have suggested. Like many timepieces, this is one of those pieces that just happens to come alive when on the wrist as opposed to being viewed in the vacuum of marketing images. I think that is because the cushioned square case with its finely made tapering bracelet is particularly flattering to the organic curves of one’s hand and arm – which allows the design to sell itself through aesthetics and wearability. If you’re curious about another take, we previously reviewed the non-chronograph version of the Seventies Panorama Date watch here. In 2014, Glashütte Original followed up by expanding the Seventies collection with the Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date that I review here today.
Speaking of square-cased watches, the Seventies case is 40mm wide by 40mm wide, and in the Glashütte Original Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date version it is 13.5mm thick (water-resistant to 100m). That makes it a true square, and the case itself feels a lot more like a retro television screen, which is intentional. Square or non-round watches are difficult to get right. Getting the proportions and overall design of a non-round watch correct such that it is both legible and looks good on the wrist is quite hard to do. Though when it is done correctly it has the makings of a classic.
As a mental exercise, think of all the watches you can that are not round but are also timeless. There are a few of them, and they stand out amazingly well. Then, think of all the watches which have non-round cases which just didn’t work despite best efforts. If you know your watches, you’ll realize that the unsuccessful ones clearly outnumber the successful ones. So when it comes to non-round watches, there is great risk, but also great reward if the brand gets its right. In my opinion, the Glashütte Original Seventies, while not totally mainstream in its appeal, has the makings of a classic.
In a sense, it is already a contemporary classic. Even though the modern version came out just a few years ago, Glashütte Original didn’t just name it “Seventies” because it loosely reminded them of the era. Rather, this collection, which includes models on various straps and three different dial colors, is directly based on watches that the brand released in the 1970s. From the 1960s to the 1970s, Glashütte Original came out with a large selection of really interesting and very “out-there” stuff. That meant a lot of experimentation with colors and case shapes. Recall that this was during a time when the brand was actually state-controlled, as Saxony was in what was then East Germany, run as a communist state. Nevertheless, the state was quite liberal with its designs, and it was a golden age of design that the Glashütte Original brand of today regularly draws inspiration from. Another square-cased model the brand produces which is inspired by the 1960s is the Glashütte Original Sixties Square (hands-on here).
The Glashütte Original Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date isn’t a cheap watch, but people get it for the case design, detailing, and of course, the in-house-made movement. As I said before, it does take a relatively seasoned watch lover to really appreciate all the details and unique style here. It’s all about the case, movement, dial, and bracelet – all of which are produced in Germany.
As all watches are sold or passed over because of their dial, let’s discuss the one on this Seventies Chronograph for a moment. This version is in a sunburst metallic blue, which is produced by Glashütte Original by their own dial-maker which is located elsewhere in the country, in Pforzheim, Germany. The blue is not just chemically applied, but done using a carefully designed technique using layers of varnish. Blue is a popular choice for watch dials today, and that’s a good thing since it offers a more inviting color than gray, and is a bit more friendly than, say, black, white, or silver. With that said, the challenge in making a good blue dial is in getting both the exact right shade and finishing. Too light or dark and it can easily ruin the appeal; too matte and it can look cheap; too glossy and it can affect legibility. So when you see a blue-colored dial that is done right, it’s easy to appreciate it.
A lot of the Glashütte Original Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date dial is about referencing the past. You see that in the applied arrowhead-style hour markers, with small lume points applied manually around the periphery of the dial. The hands are perfectly sized in length, and painted with Super-LumiNova in the middle. They offer excellent contrast against the blue dial – which makes for a very welcome sense of readability in most lighting conditions. Both the hands and hour markers are produced from 18ct white gold – which allows for a nice polish and protects against tarnishing in the future.
Even though the Glashütte Original Seventies is more a sporty/casual watch, the hands and hour markers are a bit more formal in their design, albeit still easy to read. This was odd to me at first, but I came to appreciate it. The effect is a soothing, more traditional look that still has a bit of “polished pizazz” to it, which melds nicely with the otherwise sporty case. It makes for a sexy composition, which is a rare thing to say for a timepiece with a cushion-style square case. If there is one big compliment that I’d like to give the Glashütte Original Seventies case is that it manages to look sexy while also not looking typical.
The steel case and bracelet have excellent finishing, something the brand – and, for that matter, many high-quality German watches – is known for. The polished bezel is matched by the polished chronograph pushers and crown guard. The middle of the case is finely brushed, which reduces visual mass and adds to the sport appeal. Note the polished beveling on the case edges as well, which is a lovely touch. The bracelet is designed to integrate with the case, and it is rather complicated despite the simple three-link design. Like popular favorites like the Rolex GMT-Master II, the bracelet tapers to offer a more visually balanced (and comfortable) fit on the wrist, while the center link is polished being flanked by outer brushed links.
You’ll note that the bracelet is designed to have pretty much no gaps. It moves smoothly over the wrist thanks to tight tolerances and a construction that uses a large variety of different parts. Even sizing the bracelet is not typical, and designed to be semi-tool-less. In order to remove links, there are small pushers on the inside to release them. The bracelet’s fold-over locking deployant features a discreet micro-adjust system which has been in the Glashütte Original family in one manner or another for a good time now. In fact, Glashütte Original is among the first brands in the modern era to offer a well-engineered micro-adjust system.
What this does is allow you to have about a centimeter of distance to adjust the size of the bracelet in roughly single-millimeter increments. This is operated by the pressing the “hidden” button which is the Glashütte Original brand logo on the underside of the clasp. The reason you want this is that it allows you to expand and contract the bracelet size even while it is on your wrist to always ensure precise comfort as climate or other conditions can naturally cause your wrist size to slightly vary throughout the day.
Glashütte Original also offers the Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date (or the non-Chronograph version) on two strap options. These are a fitted alligator or rubber strap. each looks nice and is comfortable, but given that I’m a “bracelet guy,” I’ll choose the matching steel over a strap pretty much anytime.
I have to say that the Glashütte Original caliber 37 movements are among the best-kept secrets in the watch world for those who like chronographs. There is nothing else out there quite like it, and it should really get more attention for offering as much functionality as it does in a package that appears very simple and elegant. Its appeal certainly grew on me, and I think anyone who likes a cleverly designed chronograph-based movement will enjoy it.
From a functionality perspective, the caliber 37 (37-02 in this watch) offers the time with subsidiary seconds dial at 9 o’clock, big date (Glashütte Original likes to call it a “Panorama Date”) indicator, power reserve indicator, and flyback 12-hour chronograph. I’ll also note that it has a stop seconds feature (which means that when you pull the crown out, the seconds hand stops so that you can more precisely set the time).
The chronograph appears to be a mere 30-minute chronograph at first, but then you see that hours are counted not via a dial, but a moving disc visible under 12 o’clock. I was concerned about the legibility of something like this at first, but I learned to really love it – and actually find this system for reading a 12-hour chronograph superior to most others. Like I said, the chronograph is a flyback, and operated via a column wheel transmission that you can view in the movement when seeing it through the sapphire crystal through the rear of the case.
Finally, Glashütte Original completes the high-functionality package by including a discreet power reserve indicator inside the upper left quadrant of the subsidiary seconds dial. It does cut out a small bit of the dial’s indicators, but that is a very small price to pay for this added functionality that I really enjoy. From a performance perspective, the 37-02 movement operates at 4Hz (28,800bph) with a power reserve of about three days.
In addition to being very nicely decorated, the Calibre 37 automatic movement has a number of features you expect to find in high-quality Glashütte-region mechanical movements. It begins by using a traditional 3/4 plate construction, which means that the back plate of the watch covers more area, and results in a stronger, more durable design. You then have a swan neck fine-adjustment system as part of the regulation system that, when mixed with the 14ct gold screws in the balance wheel, make for a system that a watchmaker can tweak for very precise accuracy.
The movement also has an expected level of decor at a watch priced like this including polished surfaces, beveled edges, and blued steel screws. The automatic rotor is also skeletonized (and given the Glashütte Original brand logo) to make viewing the movement a bit easier, and further weighted with a strip of 21ct gold. Also really nice is the fact that when you view the movement through the rear of the case you can appreciate that it takes up most of the case – as, oftentimes, people don’t like when a movement is placed in a case that is too large for it.
It’s difficult to find areas of fault in the Glashütte Original Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date. Sure, you might not personally like the design, but for what it is, Glashütte Original spent an intense level of refinement on pretty much all details. Nothing about this watch really says “improve me,” beyond small taste preferences or quirks that people might subjectively want changed. To me, wearing a watch like this feels very much like you are strapping on a pure expression of the what the brand seeks to evoke in their products.
The Glashütte Original logo, with its dual Gs design has one G facing forward and one G facing backward. This is an honest metaphor for what the brand is, and the idea is that half of their mind is focused on the past, and half is focused on the future. In many ways, that sums up the Glashütte Original Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date pretty well given its several nods to the past in terms of the case and dial design, along with having a regionally traditional mechanical movement, as well as looking ahead by being a contemporary luxury watch with a strong personality and impressive movement meant to be what fine watch lovers are looking for now and into the future.

Glashütte Original SeaQ Date Watch

Although stainless steel dive watches have remained industry staples since at least the early ‘60s, the popularity of two-tone steel and gold divers has proven far more cyclic. The unique blend of flash and function that two-tone brings has come back into vogue over the past several years, and Glashütte Original has already brought the look to its larger, uniquely Germanic SeaQ Panorama Date line. For 2021, the brand expands its steel and gold stable to include the smaller base model SeaQ diver, pairing the look with a deep sunburst-blue dial colorway. The new two-tone Glashütte Original SeaQ offers an intriguingly luxe take on the brand’s intricately detailed diver form, with a nuanced approach to its use of gold elements.
Measuring in at 39.5mm, the case of the new two-tone Glashütte Original SeaQ should feel compact and appropriately vintage-inflected on the wrist. The overall case design is simple and skin diver-esque, with a hefty unguarded screw-down pillbox crown and short, squared-off lugs. As with previous models in the SeaQ line, this one sets itself apart from the pack in the delicacy of its execution. The flowing narrow polished chamfer running the length of the case, the gentle downward curve of the lugs, and the interplay between vertically and radially brushed surfaces are all exemplary in initial images, elevating this elemental form with technique rather than out-and-out pageantry. Naturally, the use of yellow gold for the crown and the rotating dive bezel does add a touch of pageantry itself. That said, where many two-tone designs are overwhelmed with the use of gold, the amount of gold on display here is surprisingly subtle and light, especially when viewing the watch from above. The midnight blue ceramic bezel insert is carried over from the stainless steel model but takes on a new dimension in initial images when complemented by a gold surround for a more dynamic look. Like the standard stainless steel model, this new version of the SeaQ sports a solid caseback with a dive-ready 200 meters of water resistance.
The Glashütte Original SeaQ line traces its stylistic roots back to 1969 and the brand’s first-ever dive watch, the Spezimatic Typ RP TS 200. At the time, the brand’s home city of Glashütte was part of Soviet-aligned East Germany, and the resulting Eastern Bloc aesthetic influences helped to forge the dial of the original Spezimatic as something unique, but not wholly alien to that era’s diver design trends in Switzerland. Of course, both the company and the city of Glashütte are far different today than in 1969, but the new SeaQ still carries some of that quirky East German DNA in its dial. The split between applied baton indices and bold Arabic numerals, the graphic outer minutes scale, and the trademark sword hours and arrow minutes handset all add up to create something clearly distinct from the classic diver formula, but eminently functional, legible, and handsome. Like the case, however, where this dial really shines in images is in the fine nuances of its execution. The deep oceanic blue sunburst dial surface is gently domed, creating a sense of visual depth as well as a touch of old-school visual distortion. The yellow gold used for the case is carried through here as well for the hands and indices, creating a warm, rich interplay with the cool gradients of the sunburst dial. In keeping with the brand’s pinpoint attention to detail, the date window is smoothly integrated at 3 o’clock with a dial-matching date wheel and a size that nicely blends it with the surrounding applied numerals at a glance.
Glashütte Original powers the new two-tone SeaQ with its in-house 39-11 automatic movement. Although hidden behind a solid caseback, the 39-11 is heavily decorated, with bright Glashütte striping across the bridges, a striped skeleton rotor with an integrated Glashütte Original emblem in yellow gold, and polished chamfers throughout. In classical German style, the 39-11 features a delicate and ornate swan-neck fine adjustment system atop the balance cock as well. Performance for the 39-11 is solidly middle of the road, with a power reserve of 40 hours at a 28,800 bph beat rate.
While many two-tone diver designs opt for a matching bracelet in steel and gold, the new Glashütte Original SeaQ keeps its gold use subtle and balanced by avoiding bracelets altogether. Instead, this new SeaQ can be purchased with either a classic black tropic-style rubber strap to emphasize the line’s ‘60s diver look or a fabric strap in dial matching navy blue.
By sidestepping the bold, ostentatious cues often associated with two-tone designs in the past, the new two-tone Glashütte Original SeaQ offers a fresh and modern take on this trend that integrates handsomely into its core diver look. The new two-tone Glashütte Original SeaQ

Replica Glashuette Original PanoMaticLunar Green Watch

Since green has become popular in the watch circle, major brands have become more and more willing to withdraw from green watches, and most of them have achieved good responses. The more popular green watches are on the market, the more green watches on the market, the top German watch brand Glashütte Original has also released its first new watch in 2021-Red Gold Forest Green Eccentric Moon Phase Watch, which is still globally available in China First published paragraph. Replica Glashuette Original PanoMaticLunar Green Watch

The distinctive asymmetric dial is equipped with complex off-center hour and minute hands, a striking small seconds display, and a large date with brand characteristics at 4 o’clock.

The exquisitely polished red gold case and crown contrast with the deep green of the dial; smooth green alligator leather strap Become the finishing touch of this classic watch.
On the hand-made dial, the color gradient is particularly eye-catching: starting from the dark green in the center, the edge color gradually changes to black. This unforgettable rich color change effect is personally created by professional dial masters from Glashütte Original’s own dial factory in Pforzheim, Germany. First, electroplating a nickel coating on the dial, and then spraying black paint on the edges to create a unique gradient effect. Next, apply transparent green paint to the entire surface. Such an extremely delicate hand-made can achieve a unique color gradient effect, and therefore make each dial unique.
The golden bright moon of the moon phase display device reminds people of the pleasant scenery of the bright moon in the sky, the sparkling lake, and the flowing green waves. The complex moon phase disc is also made by the brand’s dial factory in Pforzheim. The first step is to use a milling tool to cut out two moons and give them a wonderful convex shape. Then polish the surface of the moon with a diamond milling tool, which gives the moon a particularly bright and dazzling light. The silver night sky shining with stars is created by sophisticated electroplating technology.
Replica Glashuette Original PanoMaticLunar Green Watch iconic double gooseneck fine-tuning mechanism and various other Glashütte’s unique traditional watchmaking art elements (such as three-quarter plates, blue steel screws, screw-fixed gold sleeves and other Glashütte) Suti’s unique decorative craftsmanship) provide indisputable evidence of their extraordinary origins.

Glashütte Original SeaQ Date

The glashutte original seaq panorama date in its “base” 39.50mm version is an expensively made, expensive dive watch that introduced the brand’s Spezialist collection of modern sports watches. The SeaQ line includes the SeaQ Panorama Date (reviewed in-depth here) and the SeaQ we see here – which probably should’ve been named the SeaQ 39.50 to reduce the confusion between the line and the name-fellow individual model.
Anyhow, the “base” SeaQ with its solid caseback and regular date display at 3 o’clock brings with it a lot of the trademark Glashütte Original charm that gives the Saxon manufacture most of its gravitas. That includes a certain feel of robustness that any moderately seasoned watch lover will be able to differentiate upon lifting the watch from its tray in the boutique, as well as a host of unique, at times even peculiar design elements. Nicely made, reliable, and quirky is the name of the game, making the SeaQ its own thing. The SeaQ 39.50mm is powered by the manufacture’s in-house Calibre 39-11, a nicely finished movement with polished steel parts, polished screw-heads, Glashütte stripe finish, and swan-neck fine adjustment – but it’s hidden behind an arguably cool-looking solid caseback engraved with a trident.
The proposition here is that of a well-made, rather straightforward diver that tries to give its wearer peace of mind. Interestingly, a justification I often hear from fellow watch lovers when they explain why they chose a diver’s watch over anything else is, beyond its looks, is the worry-free ownership that a particularly robust, shall we say, over-engineered watch provides. Glashütte Original’s motto, frankly, should just simply be that one word. If Rolex can “own” the word Superlative, why couldn’t this German watchmaker own the other?
The decisive question when it comes to the future of SeaQ is just how many prospective buyers can accurately gauge its quality and, yet more importantly, how many find its nigh-on-$10k price worth stretching for. Because for this sort of money, one does expect a bit of jewelry to be thrown into the die-hard dive watch mix, Glashütte Original has added some of its neat case finishing with tidy beveling and highly refined brushing on the middle section along with a high-polished, unidirectional bezel that frames a highly scratch-proof, matte blue and white ceramic insert.
Still, it’s the dial where it’s at for jewelry. Glashütte Original’s in-house dials are a cut above the majority of the competition with a level (and consistency) of delicacy scarcely found elsewhere. The sunburst base that glistens through the galvanic blue of the dial, the three-dimensionality of the texts, the hand-filled luminescent indices, and what appears to be a gentle drop-off curve around the periphery: these all add up and render the dial one very expensive cluster of components.
It’s no wonder, then, that the bracelet and case, although well-made, see the dial steal the show. The center links have a bright polish while the outer links are brushed – what’s arguably missing for the price is a more beautifully finished end-link because the vertically brushed piece is an odd match for the circular brushed case when you look at it closely. Or it should just have a polished centerpiece. On the plus side, the clasp has an integrated, tool-free micro-adjust slider that is operated by pressing on the Double-G logo in the center of the clasp. As I have said countless times, every luxury sports watch should have this built in – but only a small fraction of them do.
The 39.50mm Glashütte Original SeaQ wears nicely with a medium-heavy heft for the size. I respect the fact that it goes down its own way to being aesthetically pleasing: the proportions are close to perfect which is a lot, lot more difficult to get right once you start adding in important quirks such as differently shaped main hands, comfortably sized crown, thin middle case, wide dial and large indices. And yet, this is the route the SeaQ has taken and has managed to pull it off well enough. The resulting case size is 39.50mm in diameter and just 12.50mm in thickness – and that latter spec should contribute greatly to daily wearing comfort. Water resistance is 20 bars (200-meter equivalent), which isn’t on par with the 300m rating the SeaQ Panorama Date provides but still more than enough. Also, even with the 200m rating, the SeaQ conforms with both the DIN 8306 and the ISO 6425 diver’s watch standards, making it a proper a dive watch.
Another, dare I say, respectably Germanic thing to the SeaQ 39.50mm is its deliberate absence of nonsensical details. No complicated crown guard, no idiotic helium valve, no idiotically excessive water resistance – not even a cyclops anywhere to be seen. The only notable peculiarity that is more l’art pour l’art than anything else on the watch is the boxed-domed crystal that can, from steep angles, distort the indices and hands at the very edge of the dial. This effect is much more pronounced on the SeaQ Panorama Date, but it is nevertheless present on the SeaQ. As a plus, this adds a playful element to the front and since it appears to have been combined with proper anti-reflection coating, real-life legibility should actually be better than on a benchmark watch like the Submariner with its flat, albeit proudly non-AR-coated crystal. Real-world legibility is yet to be seen for this is a hands-on article and not an in-depth review.
The SeaQ’s bigger brother is the aforementioned SeaQ Panorama Date that adds a larger, beautifully finished movement that is revealed through a domed sapphire crystal caseback, adds 60 more for a total of 100 hours of power reserve, and has Glashütte Original’s trademark Panorama Date with concentric discs for a larger date display with enhanced legibility. Given Glashütte Original’s current pricing, the SeaQ Panorama Date model costs a bit over $2,000 more than the model seen here. For a fifth more of the price, it gives a whole lot more – which is something to consider before making a choice in the SeaQ line.

Available with a range of fabric and rubber straps and on the steel bracelet as seen here, the Glashütte Original SeaQ 39.50mm is priced at $10,200 on the bracelet ($9,000 with a strap and pin buckle, $9,300 with strap and deployant buckle), making the SeaQ an expensively made, expensive diver for those with an eye and appetite for luxury-priced German engineering. You can browse the collection on the brand’s website.

German fine watchmaking brand Glashütte Seaq Replica has expanded its diving watch collection by launching two new models. Introduced in 2019, the SeaQ diver’s watch takes inspiration from the first diver’s watch made in Glashütte, the Spezimatic Type RP TS 200 from 1969.

In 2019, Glashütte Original introduced not only the SeaQ diver’s watch but the new “Spezialist” collection at the same time. The latter takes up the idea of instrument watches, drawing on a rich legacy of particularly accurate and robust timepieces developed to determine the time and location on land, water and in the air.

New glashutte seaq

Glashütte Original introduced a new watch collection named Spezialist in 2020, which comprised two diver’s watches at the time: the SeaQ and the SeaQ Panorama Date.

The inspiration for these functional debutants with an air of elegance came from the Spezimatic Type RP TS 200, the first diver’s watch created by Glashütte Original’s East German predecessor, Glashütter Uhrenbetriebe (GUB), in 1969 during the era of the German Democratic Republic.

The Replica SeaQ, SeaQ Panorama Date, and limited edition SeaQ 1969 were quite a surprise at the Time to Move fair since this Glashütte-based manufacture earned its reputation for first-class complications rooted in the 175 years of Saxon watchmaking history.

As to be expected from Replica Glashütte Seaq Original, though, these new models represent excellent manufacturing and a tasteful design by fully complying with requirements of the diver’s watch genre.

The SeaQ models have been rigorously tested to meet the German DIN 8306 and international ISO 6425 standards for diver’s watches. The SeaQ and the SeaQ Panorama Date — both water resistant to 300 meters — sport a unidirectional, counterclockwise rotating bezel with ceramic inlay for increased scratch resistance and screw-down crowns.

The dials, executed in the tasteful retro style of their predecessors and enhanced by a sunray finish, offer excellent legibility under all lighting conditions thanks to the use of radiant Super-LumiNova on the distinctive Arabic numerals, indexes, and instrument-style hands.

The expressive look and feel are complemented by automatic manufacture movements: Caliber 39-11 for the SeaQ and Caliber 36-13 for the SeaQ Panorama Date.

The technical prowess of the 36-13, the flagship in the SeaQ fleet that initially arrived in 2015 in the Senator Excellence collection, is highlighted by a silicon balance spring and a generous power reserve of 100 hours stored in a single barrel.

The exquisitely finished and decorated movement is proverbially “hanging tight” in the case thanks to what the manufacture calls bayonet mounting for improved shock resistance.

Following the successful launch of the new diver’s collection, which according to Glashütte Original was exceptionally well received, the brand recently added two new variations of the SeaQ Panorama Date to the family, one in red gold and one in a two-tone case combining red gold and stainless steel.

Their black dials with fine sunray finish give an elegant twist to the no-nonsense instrument style of a diver, bridging the gap between tool watches – which they definitely are – and classically elegant timepieces.

You would not look underdressed pairing one of these with watches with a suit. A stylish gray synthetic textile strap is also available that is a beauty in itself.
