This fine timepiece from Glashutte Original
is in a limited edition of just 15 pieces, each available only at the luxury watch store Lussori
that is located in Carmel-By-The-Sea. California. This special version of the Glashutte Original Sport Evolution Panorama Date watch is in the full 18k rose gold case and bracelet, and has a beautiful blue dial and bezel.
Like all Glashutte Original watches, the movements are in-house made in Glashutte Germany. The level of decoration and refinement are impressive. You can see the automatic movement through the case back of the watch (which is still covered in all the protective plastic in the pictures). Holding the watch in your hand you are impressed with the heft of gold. It makes for a highly noticeable watch that you'll notice on your wrist - a good thing in my opinion. While some people enjoy the concept of stealth wealth, others adore having their timepieces be noticed. The various tones of metallic blue on the dial are complimented by splashes of red. The square club hands are easy to read, while the two-disc "panorama" big date at 4 o'clock is a wonderful complication to have in a sport style watch.
Admire the case and you'll notice some of the finer details that you get in German Glashutte Original watch - that you'll never find in a Rolex (which arelower cost watches, though obvious thematic competitors to this timepiece). There is certainly a lot more sophisticated style here in the Sport Evolution than say a Submariner or Yachmaster. Plus you have the Glashutte Original movements that you can't even really compare to Rolex. The case is 42.5mm wide and very well polished and finished with contrasting brushed and polished surfaces. The Sport Evolution bracelet is one of the most interestingly made bracelets available with absolutely no gaps and a complex but smooth feel to it (so characteristically German). If you want one of these lovely numbers, you'll have to talk to or visit Lussori. Retail price is about $40,000 for this all rose gold Glashutte Original Sport Evolution Panorama Date watch.
