Balanced, understated design and innovative, accurate technology come to mind when you think of German watchmaking. Most timepieces made in Saxony have instantly recognisable signature features: slim bezels, minimalist dials and classic cases. Glashütte Original is the worthy icon of German craftsmanship namely with the Pano collection and these two new products. The 40mm PanoMaticLunar comes in matt black and rose gold or deep blue and steel for 2015. The way the information is displayed on the dial makes it easy to read. The azure hour rim features gold or silver indices and hands off-centre at 9 o’ clock whilst the small seconds counter unfurls at 7 o’ clock. The famous panorama dual date display lies on the opposite side at 4 o’ clock whilst the moon phase stands at 2 o’ clock. The functions are brought to life by a self-winding calibre.
