The Manual Wind: Glashutte Original Senator Sixties Chronograph

SixtSquChrono_St_silbWith vintage design taking the modern watch world by storm, the fight becomes who can embody an era most accurately.  One brand with a release that was ahead of its time (by five years) was Glashutte Original.  This German watch manufacturer captured the the definition of their collection, 20th century modern, with the Senator Sixties Square Chronograph.

i_1850_3934023204_SixtSquChrono_St_kroneEvery element of the Senator Sixties Square Chronograph exemplifies the era.  A stainless steel T.V. screen shaped case, curved edges and all, is capped on either side by two sapphire bubble crystals for a retro look up top, and increased movement viewing below. On the inside lies the Glashutte manufacture 39-34 automatic chronograph movement.  Adorned with the Glashutte insignia on the rotor, even the movement finishing adds to the look.  A domed steel dial in either silver with gold accents, or black and steel accents, completes this retro construction.

Sen_Sixties_Chrono_u3Offered with small grained Louisiana Alligator straps in either brown or black (depending on dial color) with tang buckle attached, even the straps give this piece a vintage purist feel.

With the value of original vintage timepieces in the sport segment on the rise, this piece was too good for its release date.  If the Senator sixties had made its debut at this past Basel Fair rather than a few years back, you could be sure this dramatic design would help prop up the original vintage dress piece segment as well.  The era accuracy of the entire Senator Sixties line, especially the Senator Sixties Square Chronograph, is a testament to the design and watchmaking abilities of one of the few high end German manufacturers.
