After the green of the 2018 edition and the multi-faceted orange of 2019, this year Glashütte Original chooses a cool icy mass blue for the new Sixties Annual Edition 2020.
Moreover, the German brand presents a chronograph model without precedent for an annual edition.
The icy mass blue is a shade of extraordinary style and allure that is entirely fit for the exemplary look of the Sixties line with its domed sapphire gems, bended hands and trademark Arabic numerals.
The exceptional hand-made dials are delivered in-house in Glashütte Original’s devoted industrial facility in Pforzheim, Germany.
Subsequent to getting a fragile sunray finish, these dials are squeezed into their trademark domed shape and given a galvanic nickel covering. The unmistakable dégradé impact is gotten by showering them with dull blue finish, which first gives them a dim edge, and afterward applying a layer of glacial mass blue veneer to the whole surface.
The dials are then warmed in a stove to consume in the tones. The etched records, printed numerals and Super-LumiNova features on every hour marker complete the gathering.
The Sixties three-hand model is introduced in a 39 mm width cleaned treated steel case, while the chronograph is somewhat bigger at 42 mm.
The Sixties Chronograph is outfitted with a focal stop-second alongside two inset helper dials for the little second and 30-minute counter.
The domed sapphire precious stone case back on the two models offers an unmistakable view of each watch‘s finely completed programmed development – Caliber 39-52 for the Sixties and Caliber 39-54 for the Sixties Chronograph – with three-quarter plate, swan-neck fine change, Glashütte stripe finish and skeletonised rotor with 21-carat swaying mass.
The two developments beat at 28,800 vibrations each hour and offer a 40-hour power save.
Completed by brown-dark nubuck calfskin lashes with pin clasp, the Glashütte Original Sixties (ref. 1-39-52-14-02-04) and Sixties Chronograph (ref. 1-39-34-04-22-04) are accessible temporarily just from Glashütte Original Boutiques and chose approved sellers worldwide with costs of Euro 6,600 and Euro 8,100 individually. glashuette-original.com
