The tiki hut watch is back for more. At least that is what I nicknamed the Glashutte Original
Senator Sixties watch due to the shape of its Arabic numerals. New for 2010 is the Panorama Date version of the watch. This is what Glashutte Original calls their "big date" complication. You can see it in the lower center part of the dial. Two large discs to tell the date instead of one. At this point you either love the design or feel that it isn't even worth your time to look at. I am not sure where I stand, but I suddenly want a drink that arrives sipped out of a coconut. The Senator Sixties Panorama Date comes in a 42mm wide steel case with either the pictured silver dial, or a black dial. Both have gold hour hands and indexes. The watch is thinner at 12.4mm thick. Now that I think of it, the Glashutte Original logo really goes with the theme well.
Aside from that the watch is pretty straight forward. This is a more "simple" version of the Senator Sixties watch as the line progresses. Inside the watch is a Glashutte Original in-house made Calibre 39-47 automatic movement. 22k gold rotor that you can see through the watch's sapphire caseback window. The watch will be under $10,000 I believe, and will be officially unveiled in March.
