Haute Living Watch of the Week: Glashütte Original PanoMaticInverse

1-91-02-01-05-30_PanoMaticInverse_RedG_si_LB N_Fr_Press (JPG)_10255The beauty of the mechanical movement is front and center in the PanoMaticInverse. Components of the automatic Caliber 91-02 reversed, with the aim of highlighting the manufacture’s signature fine adjustment system – a duplex swan-neck mechanism – by making it visible on the dial side. Beneath it beats the pulsating heart of the watch, the escapement.1-91-02-01-05-30_PanoMaticInverse_RedG_si_LB-N_Dial_25cm_Press-JPG_10147

Also visible on the dial side are the blued screws and red rubies of the three-quarter dial plate, which is rhodium plated and decorated with Glashütte ribbing. Positioned against this backdrop are the off-center hour and minute dial, characteristic of the Pano line, as well as the seconds dial and panorama date display.1-91-02-02-02-30_PanoMaticInverse_SST_si_LB_Movement_25cm_Press-JPG_10149

The back side of the movement shows the skeletonized central rotor, with a 21K gold oscillating mass, against a backdrop of Glashütte ribbing, as well as a number of rubies and two-tone engravings on the wheel bridge. The PanoMaticInverse is fitted with a Louisiana alligator Nubuk leather strap or a satin brushed and polished stainless steel case.
