New 2020 Glashütte Original Senator 

The Glashütte Original Limited Edition Senator Chronometer Ref. 1-58-03-01-04-30 is the newest model of the brand, released in 2020. Sold at an approximate price of $32,315 USD, only 25 pieces of this limited edition timepiece were made available. This chronometer watch has historical roots, drawing inspiration from the old 19th and 20th century marine chronometers from Glashütte.

What makes this model distinct from the older Glashütte chronometers is its tested precision in timekeeping, functional design, and perfect legibility. This model also features a handy second-stop mechanism, which can be activated by pulling the crown out. This results in the time display being stopped and the seconds hand being reset to zero. It allows the watch to maintain perfectly accurate time-telling by letting the seconds hand jump from one minute to the next when setting the time of the day. 

Furthermore, this timepiece is a high-quality watch certified by the German Calibration Service. This guarantees that the watch has a certain reliable standard of quality, since it requires rigorous testing of the precision of the watch’s movement. 

A few unique features that this limited edition Glashütte Original Senator watch comes with include a white gold case and a concave bezel with a delicate knurling pattern, along with a powerful movement that has galvanized rose gold surfaces with a highly refined finish. 

Glashütte Original Senator’s History and Design Details

Like other German watchmakers such as Montblanc and MeisterSinger, Glashütte Original is also considered one of the top luxury watch manufacturers in the world. The brand was founded during the German reunification, which involved the merger of all existing Glashütte watchmaking companies after the two world wars. At that time, Glashütter Uhrenbetrieb GmbH only produced simple and cheap watches that were just sold in mail-order catalogs. 

Today, Glashütte Original has been part of the Swatch Group since 2000. The Swatch Group made the German brand known internationally and helped with the innovation of modern watches such as the Senator collection. Together, they aim to produce timepieces that embody the tradition of working with innovative technologies by hand. 

Glashütte Original watches are mostly equipped with in-house movements and filigree dials. The brand has developed a culture of excellence, which has led to their products possessing timeless elegance and sophisticated technology. The Glashütte Original Senator collection is the perfect epitome of the brand’s excellent culture. This collection of watches is an expression of the best in the art of German engineering. They are made with mechanical complexity and fuse traditional elements with functional designs. Each piece has artistic engravings, dials that delicately shimmer, and polished movements. 

One of the intriguing features in the Glashütte Original Senator is the panorama date function, which is made in-house and takes the form of a tiny display disc. Each disc is intricately designed to match the color of the specific dial. The moon disc feature is another design that is sought-after by many watch enthusiasts. It is designed to have galvanized-colored stars and convex shapes in the moons. 

Reasons to Buy Glashütte Original Senator Watches

If you are still on the fence about buying a Glashütte Original Senator timepiece, here are the top five reasons why it is definitely worth the investment. 

German-made Watch

German watches are known to have quality standards in terms of precision, mastery in engineering, keen attention to detail, and practical functionality. Germany is famous for superiority in manufacturing, placing more emphasis on functionality than just mere decorations.

In-House Production

All the timepieces from this collection are elaborately produced and assembled with care. The Senator collection has pieces that make use of the brand’s innovative technologies. In addition, Glashütte Original has claimed that many critical steps during the watchmaking process were carried out by hand, giving us gorgeously and carefully handcrafted Senator timepieces.  

Tested Rigorously

The reliability of the watches has been ensured through various rounds of rigorous testing. These include the entry condensation used primarily for testing moisture in the watch; the position test used for simulation of everyday use; the rate test used for accuracy; the temperature test used for measuring performance during temperature change; the rate stability test used for its resumption of hours; and the performance and visual inspection test used for inspecting the final aesthetic view. 

Premium Materials

All pieces from the Senator collection use German silver, which is more rigid and studier than rhodium-plated brass. Other case materials used include red gold, platinum, or stainless steel, all of which have been proven to be extremely shock-resistant, especially when used outdoors. 

Glashutte Original Senator: Peak German Craftsmanship

Glashütte Original has always stood out among the top German watch companies that produce high-end wristwatches. Though its Senator watches are offered at different price points, they remain some of the superior pieces in the luxury watch market.
