Comments Off on Glashutte The Senator Chronometer
The Senator Chronometer is an outstanding timepiece that is popular for more than its sleek design. The watch boasts of exceptional functionality, durability and is also pretty easy to read. The watch is inspired by the Glashutte made marine chronometers that were developed mid-20th century. Released to the market in 2009, the watch has grown in popularity across the planet, receiving attention for its chic dial and majestic case.
Nothing highlights the beauty of a watch better than its dial. The Senator Chronometer has an elegant dial that flawlessly combines a lacquered surface and fine grain to give a unique and gorgeous texture. To achieve perfection, several layers of lacquering is applied on to the dial for an amazing blend of shadow and grain.
Besides the time, the dial also has a section that details the power reserve information between AB and AUF. There is also a large and easy to read date window that enhances the appeal of the dial and is also useful when you need to tell the date.
Made of fine quality and durable white gold material, the hour and minute hands of the watch are elegantly designed. They are stunning and bold at the same time for easy reading of time. The light color of the hands is a nifty feature to give sufficient contrast with the dial’s darker color.
The watch’s chapter ring is another remarkable feature that makes it stand out. It features numerals and indexes boldly engraved on the dial. After the engraving, they are then professionally galvanized in silver. The slight contrast between the hands and the markings on the dial gives the watch a touch of style and uniqueness.
Just as the name suggests, the watch has a chronometer, a feature included to ensure its accuracy. It has the chronometer wording just beneath the power reserve indicator on the dial. For a watch to bear the chronometer title, its movement has to comply to the standards. The Senator Chronometer is made of a chronometer that is certified by the reputable German Calibration Service.
Another feature of the watch that makes it a one of a kind timepiece is its beautiful crown. the crown is proportioned, a feature that is aimed at supporting the fact that it depends on hand-wound movement. The crown is also easy to hold and is signed with the classic embossed Glashutte Original logo.
The Senator Chronometer has a characteristically thin bezel that has a well-polished finish. The thinness of the bezel provides an astonishing backdrop for the dial to look majestic. With a thickness of 12.47mm and a diameter of 42mm, the white gold case of the Senator Chronometer helps it stand out from the rest. The watch is just of the perfect size and can be worn with both official and casual wear. The caseback has a polished finish.
The watch is fitted onto an alligator strap that comes complete with a folding clasp made of high-quality white gold material.
