Glashütte Original is letting their hair down a bit with two new references within the Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date collection featuring dials called “Disco Blue” and “Vibing Orange”. The watches arrive just in time for the squelching hot summer and don’t hold back on the saturation. Underneath the colors, there’s still a seriously proper watch happening, and these limited editions boast some of the very best watchmaking Germany has to offer. Seriously, this is a lot of watch jammed into the distinctive square Seventies case. The Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date has never been your bog standard take on the chronograph, and now it gets the color to match the personality.
The Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date is not a new watch, with existing blue and gradient green dials already in the collection. It’s a square-ish case featuring an integrated bracelet or strap design measuring a neat 40mm x 40mm, but as unique as the case is, the dial has it topped. And that’s before the application of any color.
