In the watchmaking industry, watches must be given a heavy responsibility. We must not only ensure the accuracy of the time to the greatest extent, but also accompany the owner on the wrist with a reliable quality for a long time. At the 44th Basel International Watch & Jewellery Show in 2016, Glashütte developed a new self-made Calibre 36 automatic movement, which is definitely one of the highlights of the watch show. With rigorous watchmaking technology, every detail of the watch is exquisite and perfect, and hard work is done on the timing, so that time returns to the essence. Glashütte Original launches the original Senator Excellence watch in stainless steel and silver with an advanced design and classic appearance. At the same time, it meets the fine watchmaking art standards, with both innovative ideas and practical value. Official model: 1-36-01-02-05-01

The advanced design and the classic appearance of the previous money have created such a rose gold watch with both elegance and simplicity.

These watches must complete the busy life of the owner and defend the reputation of “Made in Germany” with trusted quality. Therefore, in the process of making it is given an extraordinary mission: precise travel time and long-term companionship.
