Glashütte Original: new colours for the Seventies Chronograph

The German brand presents two new limited editions of its Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date timepiece, whose dials in sky blue or lush orange take up the electrifying style of the 1970s.

“D

isco Blue” and “Vibing Orange” – the names of the new Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date models say it all. The two limited editions from Glashütte Original prove to be ideal companions for short nights and hot summer days. Their dials in sky blue or lush orange take up the electrifying style of the 1970s and lift everyone’s spirits instantly. The hand-crafted automatic movement keeps a steady beat and offers, combined with its vintage styling, an extremely good time.

Bright colours and flamboyant patterns were one of the Seventies’ big trends. In the cities, clubs popped up everywhere, and the dancers’ extravagant outfits shone in all the colours of the rainbow. Now Glashütte Original has taken inspiration from two of the most popular shades of disco fever. Light blue stands for freedom and light-heartedness, while orange exudes zest for life and jollity. Both light the desire not just for short nights, but for long summer days as well: they evoke sunsets and swimming pools, bright blue skies and exotic cocktails – with every glance at the time.

The Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date has been a favoured member of the Glashütte Original collection since it was first introduced. The design is inspired by the trends of the eponymous decade, and new versions continue to add colour to the line. The latest entries add a new chapter to this success story. With dials in “Disco Blue” and “Vibing Orange”, the new Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date models are real eye-catchers. Both dials feature a matt lacquer surface, which lends the powerful colours a contemporary finish – and are remarkably rare: the two new timepieces are each limited to 100 pieces.

No changes have been made to the gently rounded corners and dynamic lines of the 40 x 40 mm stainless steel case, a size fit for every wrist. The striking forms and shiny accents are perfectly complemented by two different straps: matt black rubber and pure stainless steel.

Ticking quietly and reliably within this stylish chronograph is the Glashütte Original manufactory’s Calibre 37-02 automatic movement, which is crafted, decorated and regulated by hand in the brand’s own workshops. Its hypnotic motion and refined decorative finishes can easily be admired through its sapphire crystal case back. Watch fans will love the technical details of this filigreed power pack: up to 70 hours power reserve join water resistance up to 10 bar. In general, this mechanical work of art with flyback chronograph is exceptionally suited for everyday use. The eminently legible Panorama Date, one of the watchmaker’s signature features, never tires of reminding the wearer to make good use of the day.

The two new Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date models in “Disco Blue” and “Vibing Orange”, both of which are produced in limited editions of only 100 pieces, are available from the end of July 2022 in all Glashütte Original Boutiques and from authorised retailers worldwide.
