Baselworld preview – two Glashütte Original Pano models

The previous versions of the PanoMaticLunar and the PanoReserve were presented at Baselworld 2012, and the new features of the 2015 Baselworld models are basically dial colour and finish. Glashütte Original has its own dial manufactory in Pforzheim and so have complete control over dial design elements. The new models feature intense blue and black shades, with red gold cases with black dial, and stainless steel cases with blue dial. As you can see from the photos below showing the 2012 versions and the new models, the design layout has not changed.



Both models have 40 mm dials, and the design gives lots of space to the various elements, with intersecting hour/minute and seconds indicators on the left, and date and the special indicator, moon phase or power reserve, on the right. Glashütte Original say that the dial design incorporates the Golden Mean (Michel Parmigiani is another watchmaker who dedicates constant attention to the Golden Mean and the Fibonacci sequence in his pieces), and possibly it could be found in the proportion between the diameter of the two dials. Whatever, the asymmetric dial has a fine balance.

The PanoMaticLunar is powered by the in-house Calibre 90-02 automatic movement with 42 hours power reserve, with the caseback offering the distinctive Glashütte Original movement view with most of the space taken up by the three-quarter plate with Glashütte Stripe finish, the balance with beautiful duplex swan-neck for adjustment.









The PanoReserve has the Calibre 65-01 movement with 42 hours power reserve, and sapphire caseback.
