Senator Excellence watches represent a new generation of timeless classics, combining traditional elements of style with contemporary design. These handcrafted timepieces are tailor-made companions for life, adding a touch of class to any wardrobe. Today, four new variants join the portfolio. Two new interpretations of the Perpetual Calendar and two models with Panorama Date and moon phase displays embody understated luxury and call to mind the enduring power of universal values. 

In a class of its own: The Senator Excellence Family 

Launched by Glashütte Original in 2016, the Senator Excellence product line bears its name with good reason. When the German manufactory’s engineers and designers created these timepieces, they kept the highest standards for stability, precision, running time and beauty in mind. An in-house trial lasting 24 days puts the quality of every single timepiece to the test. Altogether, there are four models in the Senator Excellence line, available in different versions: a spectacular Perpetual Calendar, an elegant version with moon phase display, and two minimalist variants with Panorama Date or three hands. As for grand complications, Glashütte Original now offers even greater variety: two new Perpetual Calendar models and two additional versions with Panorama Date and moon phase displays have been added to the collection. 

Pure elegance: superbly crafted dials 

The perpetual calendar is one of watchmaking’s greatest challenges, and the moon phase one of its most beautiful displays. These traditional complications find a perfect fit within the signature look of the Senator Excellence line, where they are presented with elegance and clarity. In satin-brushed/polished red gold or stainless steel cases, two new dials with finegrained surfaces provide a perfectly balanced backdrop for the clearly arranged displays. The red gold version presents a galvanic silver dial with ivory-coloured accents, the stainless steel variant a galvanic grey dial with blue elements. Also new are the applied indexes in solid gold. Together, the velvety surface texture and the raised, hand-mounted indexes lend fascinating visual depth to the watch face. Straps in brown nubuck leather, dark blue fabric or blue Louisiana alligator leather are perfectly matched to the colours of the watches. 

Precision mechanics with insight: the manufactory movements 

Ticking within these watches are state-of-the-art versions of the renowned Calibre 36, whose exceptional technical properties have been widely celebrated. Both offer at least 100 hours of power reserve and feature an antimagnetic silicon balance spring. The new models with automatic manufactory movements also present newly designed skeletonised rotors with the brand’s signature Double-G logo and an oscillating mass in 21-carat gold. This makes it possible to offer expansive views of the elaborately decorated movement, including such details as the hand-engraved balance cock.

Regardless which Senator Excellence you choose: each of these timepieces is a loyal and ever-stylish companion for life.
