Movement

The heart of the Senator Diary is the Glashütte Original caliber 100-13, which combines the caliber 100-03 with the extraordinary new diary appointment module for total of 631 components (the diary appointment module alone consists of 340 components), all but a handful of which are designed, manufactured, finished and painstakingly assembled in the Glashütte Original manufactory.

A superb example of the art of engineering at Glashütte Original, the ingeniously interlocking components permit the wearer to set an appointment beyond the end of the month, even when a manual correction of the date is required; any change in date at the end of the month is passed along to the alarm mechanism, obviating the need to reset the alarm. A third spring barrel built into the module ensures that even if the watch runs down, the alarm remains wound.

The Caliber 100-13 automatic movement exhibits further evidence of excellence in fine mechanical watches from Glashütte Original, including a divided three-quarter plate with Glashütte ribbing, polished steel components, beveled edges and blued screws. These exquisite finishings are easily visible through the sapphire crystal case back.

Description

At introduction, the Senator Diary represented a world first: no mechanical watch has ever made it possible to set an alarm up to 30 days ahead of time.

The heart of the Senator Diary is the Glashütte Original Caliber 100-13 including 631 components (the diary appointment module alone consists of 340 components). When the set date and time arrives, the alarm rings – for up to 80 seconds.

The Senator Diary is beautifully balanced, with two crowns positioned directly opposite each other on either side of the case, each flanked by a pusher. The crown and pusher on the right operate the compelling Panorama Data display, positioned at 3 o’clock.

The eye of the connoisseur is drawn immediately to the diary alarm — a subdial at 9 o’clock and a gently curving aperture indicated by an arrow at 6 o’clock.

A superb example of the art of engineering at Glashütte Original, the ingeniously interlocking components permit the wearer to set an appointment beyond the end of the month, even when a manual correction of the date is required; any change in date at the end of the month is passed along to the alarm mechanism, obviating the need to reset the alarm. A third spring barrel built into the module ensures that even if the watch runs down, the alarm remains wound.
