As watchmakers revisit core values of craftsmanship, timekeeping, and enduring design, Germany’s Glashütte Original evokes all these characteristics with the Senator Chronometer ($26,900 in rose gold and $28,000 in white gold). Only watches that meet exacting standards of precision, when tested by an official independent institute, can be called a certified chronometer, a term used for supremely accurate timekeepers that were historically employed for sea and air navigation. The Senator Chronometer attained the certification thanks to the redesigned manual winding Caliber 58-01, which employs an ingenious stop-seconds/reset mechanism that facilitates precise synchronization of the minute and second hands. With its silver dial marked by stately Roman numerals, a subsidiary seconds display, a power-reserve gauge that specifies how many hours of energy remain stored in the movement, and the brand’s hallmark panoramic date window, the Senator Chronometer recalls those refined pocket chronometers of days gone by.
