Since the second half of the 1970s, a new style of sci-fi has appeared. The tough work is ‘Star Wars’ by director George Lucas. The completion of this film marks the rise of the ‘galactic fever’ in science fiction films, and reflects the basic characteristics and development direction of such films. With the popularity of science fiction and space-themed adventures, it was quickly shaped into the shape of daily necessities. As a result, many cars, chairs, and watches in the second half of the 1970s exhibited a streamlined aerodynamic look with soft edges.
At this year’s 2014 Baselworld Watch & Jewellery Show, Glashütte introduced the Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date, a dial with three models of ruthenium, silver and blue. All three watches feature a 70s series Seventies characteristic obtuse-angled square steel case and bezel, with different straps made of stainless steel, leather and rubber. Today, the Watch House will bring you this Glashütte’s 1970s big date chronograph watch. The official model is: 1-37-02-02-02-30.
The 40 * 40 mm stainless steel case, the sapphire crystal, and the ordinary material completely caught my eye. The case of this watch is really well done, in terms of craftsmanship. It is not a one-piece mirror finish, nor is it a side metal brushed finish. This 70-year-old band watch uses a mirror and brushed staggered design, making a complex square case more delicate and flavorful.
The gear-shaped crown is polished and engraved with Glashütte’s brand logo. The start and stop function of the timer is controlled by the button above the crown, and the flyback timing structure is controlled by the button below the crown. Pressing the flyback button can stop the timer that is timing, and make the hour and minute hands of the timer The second hand returns to zero. The two buttons are also polished, and the sides look layered.
The black Louisiana crocodile leather strap has a uniform texture and fine workmanship.
The 14.6 mm-thick case has smooth, soft lines on the sides and a great texture. The large calendar quick-adjust button at 10 o’clock can quickly change the date display.
The brushed and polished stainless steel buckle, the edges of the buckle are polished and polished, and two different processing methods appear frequently and staggered, creating a strong sense of layering. The exquisite craftsmanship of the brand is fully demonstrated, and it is a plus for this.
The lugs are relatively short and run parallel to the middle strap link joints. The advantage of this is that people with thin wrists can also wear it, and they will not worry that the lugs will rush out of the wrist and not fit the wrist. The joints and lugs are also treated in two ways.
Continuing the inspiration and spirit from the 1970s Glashütte’s original design of the 1970s big calendar watch, showing a streamlined, elegant dial appearance. Silver-plated sunburst dial, small stopwatch at 9 o’clock with black and white power reserve indicator, and 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock. In the middle directly below 12 o’clock, there is a small but stylish hour counter that displays Arabic numerals from 1 to 12, which contrasts with the original Glashütte original iconic large calendar display on the lower part of the dial. This four-corner symmetrical The design method is quite satisfactory, with a practical and precise style of German design. White gold applique, the hands are also made of white gold, and the hour and minute hands are coated with Super-LumiNova, which improves legibility.
With a sapphire crystal case back, Glashütte’s new exquisite movement is unobstructed. The new chronograph’s column wheel structure reduces the number of individual parts and is particularly streamlined. The movement uses a two-way automatic tourbillon, and the 70-hour power reserve is controlled by a single barrel wheel. Four gold screws on the rim of the balance wheel are used for adjustment. There is no adjuster on the mainspring, allowing the movement to run continuously for a long time, thereby improving accuracy.
Summary: When it comes to German craftsmanship, the first thing I think of is ‘rigidity’, ‘delicacy’ and ‘high quality’. As the leader of German watchmaking, this chronograph watch by Glashütte mentioned “the chronograph is accurate to 0.125 seconds” in the video introduction. It feels very accurate, although I am not quite sure that other chronograph watches can be accurate. How much. The making of the case, I can only say that it is really very good, with clear layers and exquisite workmanship. It is equipped with the latest Glashütte movement. If you are tired of the round case design and want to change the taste, this Definitely worth choosing. The current quote for this watch is 124,000 RMB.
