Earlier last month, Glashütte Original released the latest timepiece in their SeaQ Panorama Date collection. The SeaQ Panorama Date was designed to be an all-rounder, a timepiece that can be worn out on adventures, yet still, have the class and luxurious appeal to be worn to formal events. A watch that’s perfect for office wear and for sporty functions.
There have been three previous versions of this model. A contrasting black dial, a beautiful blue dial, and also a black and red gold version. The latest colour to be added to this collection is what Glashütte Original calls “Reed Green”. Green is considered to be the colour of life, sustainability, and nature. The natural effect it has when seen is that of positivity and harmony. It’s the perfect colour for a timepiece that’s made for the outdoors.
The SeaQ Panorama Date Reed Green features a beautiful reed green on the dial and a uni-directional rotating bezel. The bezel has a half-minute detent and scratch-resistant ceramic inlay. The timepiece comes in a 43.2mm stainless steel case with a matching stainless steel bracelet. The dial is beautifully done, with the hour indices and hands in big bold white (coated in SuperlumiNova) giving a nice amount of contrast against the reed green dial background. The date window between 4 and 5 o’clock is the only other function that is shown on the dial. This is a good thing as it’s important to keep the dial relatively simple is the essence of this watch.
The dial is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal which is anti-reflective on both sides, allowing the beauty of the dial to be seen to its fullest.
A watch suited to the outdoors in land or water needs a movement that can withstand the harsh conditions on offer. The resilience of this timepiece can be found at the heart of the watch. Anchored in the case with a bayonet mount, the manufactures 36-13 mechanical movement is shockproof, has increased accuracy, and has a water resistance of up to 30 bar (300m). The Automatic Calibre 36-13 movement ticks at a frequency of 4Hz or 28, 800 (VpH). The movement also gives out a power reserve of approximately 100 hours.
The Calibre 36-13 movement has a silicon balance spring which makes the movement immune to the effects of omnipresent magnetic fields which can affect precision and accuracy. The movement and timepiece also meet the requirements of DIN 8306 and ISO 6425, which are the standards for professional dive watches. The watch comes with an open case back in which you can see the hand-finished movement and its first-class decorative finishes.
The latest colourway for the SeaQ Panorama Date sees the timepiece don a beautiful reed green, making it a perfect colour for a timepiece made for the outdoors. Glashütte Original put it best with this statement “this watch offers a rare combination of sporty functionality, reliable endurance, and unmatched style. Every single element, no matter how small, serves its purpose in an excellent manner, and is harmoniously finished by the hand of an expert artisan”.
Offered in a rubber strap, stainless steel bracelet, or ultra-robust fabric strap, the Glashütte Original SeaQ Panorama Date Reed Green is available for purchase in March 2022, from Glashütte Original Boutiques and selected authorised dealers.
