The Senator Automatic is an inspired tribute to the heritage of fine mechanical watchmaking from Glashütte Original. It embodies a deep respect for traditional approaches to watch design: slender black Roman numerals adorn a silver dial circumscribed by a fine black ‘railroad track’ minute ring.
Pear shaped, blued steel hour and minute hands and a slim, blued steel seconds hand with double-G counterweight enhance the finely tuned harmony of the dial. The sapphire crystal, anti-reflective on both sides, affords a clear view of this simply classical design.
A sapphire crystal set in the polished case back opens up the heart of the watch to the connoisseur’s eye, offering additional, irrefutable evidence of the high art of watchmaking at Glashütte Original.
A hand-crafted automatic movement from the German watchmaker’s own manufactory, the finely finished calibre 39-59 has an operating frequency of 28,800 vph (4 Hz) and a 40-hour power reserve. Exemplary features of this superb movement include polished stainless steel components with bevelled edges, a swan-neck fine adjustment, screw-mounted gold chatons and the traditional Glashütte three-quarter plate and skeletonized rotor, both with traditional Glashütte ribbing.
