Senator Observer

If Roald Amundsen had been born a century later, would he have been as moved by the Senator Observer as he was by the observation watch designed by Julius Assmann in 1910, one of the founding fathers of Glashütte? Would the Norwegian explorer have taken this gem of German precision with him on exciting expeditions to the polar regions? Just imagine it. He would certainly have been won over by the mechanism inside the 44mm steel case and the reliable and accurate 100-14 self-winding calibre which provides a 55-hour power reserve. He would probably have fallen for the matt black dial adorned with floral Arabic numerals and leaf-shape central hands, a small seconds counter at 9 o’ clock and a power reserve indicator at 3 o’ clock which all glow in their luminescent coating. He would surely have marvelled at the so-called “panorama” date in the double display at 6 o’ clock. Price: 9,900 CHF
