Glashütte Original PanoMaticCalendar

Post by koimaster » August 22nd 2022, 11:04pm

Probably the most emblematic and distinctive range of watches produced by the Saxon manufacture, the Pano collection has seen many different complications – power reserve, moon phase, retrograde chronograph or inverted movement to name a few – but never before the brand worked on a calendar watch. Things have changed recently, as Glashütte Original released the PanoMaticCalendar. And not only this watch features a new display and a new movement, but it’s also the first-ever annual calendar of the brand – and this is a complication we’ve always deeply appreciated here, at MONOCHROME. It’s time now for us to have a closer look at this elegant, complex yet surprisingly discreet new PanoMaticCalendar, in its non-limited red gold edition.



THE BEST OF MECHANICAL INGENUITY, THE ANNUAL CALENDAR
Before we go into the details about the PanoMaticCalendar, let’s dive into some technical reminders, specifically concerning the annual calendar. Calendar watches can take multiple shapes. Without going into the details about how to display a date – whether thanks to a window, a central hand or a subdial with a so-called pointer date feature – let’s categorize things a bit. The most common complication of a watch (anything in addition to the display of the time) is the date, which represents the first step into calendar watches.

Spectacular - GO not only expands their mechanical watchmaking facility with a new movement to augment their line-up of complications, they showcase its novelty on the best dial they've ever designed.

All for under 30 G's — equally spectacular.

The price in gold is substantially lower than comparable gold annual calendar watches like Omega, Patek, and ALS as noted in the link. Given the ingenuity of the movement, I suspect it will ultimately be available in stainless steel which will regrettably still be out of my price range.
