Reading Time: 4 minutes

In its search for perfection, Glashütte Original has created a new masterpiece of haute horlogerie: the new PanoLunarTourbillon. Limited to 25 pieces, the timepiece combines the highest levels of craftsmanship, technical sophistication and exceptional beauty in an unmistakable design. With its hand-engraved dial, Flying Tourbillon and skeletonized hands, the new models sets particularly elegant accents.

The PanoLunarTourbillon is a new edition of its predecessor model from 2013 and a true work of art. Elaborate engravings adorn the galvanic silver surface of the dial and the back of the movement. These filigree decorations bear witness to the rich traditions of Glashütte watchmaking, lending each watch its uniquely individual character.

Artful and aesthetic

The Pano collection captivates thanks to its striking dial layout, which is particularly evident with the new PanoLunarTourbillon. The lavishly decorated dial with the characteristic off-centre displays is framed by a case in platinum.

Both the auxiliary dial for hours and minutes and the Flying Tourbillon with the small second are positioned on the left side of the dial. An exquisite moon phase display with blue night sky and the watchmaker’s signature Panorama Date grace the right side.

All engravings on the dial side are executed in Glashütte Original’s own dial manufactory in Pforzheim. The engravers work without a pattern, using a burin to inscribe the design freehand in the solid gold dial blanks.
After 27 separate steps and an entire day’s engraving time – if not more – the dial of this masterpiece is complete.

Elaborate decorations adorn the back of the movement as well, combining craftsmanship, tradition and perfection once again.

Tradition-rich Glashütte complication

The Flying Tourbillon oscillates, lightly and gracefully, on the left side of the dial. As fascinating as it is to watch, the complication was originally designed to improve precision. With this “whirlwind“, the entire oscillation and escapement system revolves on its own axis within a minute. This served to counter the effect of gravity on the rate precision of the era’s pocket watches.

Precisely 100 years ago, Alfred Helwig’s innovative “cantilevered“ mounting of the cage (on one side only) lent one of the most intricate complications of haute horlogerie, the classic tourbillon, the appearance of weightlessness.Glashütte Original PanoLunarTourbillon – Limited Edition

 

Superb craftsmanship

The PanoLunarTourbillon is powered by the automatic movement Calibre 93-12. The timepiece has a power reserve of 48 hours and a fully integrated moon phase mechanism. The oscillating system with 10 weighted screws and 8 regulation screws ensures optimal rate precision. Characteristic features of the Glashütte art of watchmaking, such as sunburst finish, blued screws as well as bevelled and polished edges, reveal their beauty through the sapphire crystal case back.Glashütte Original PanoLunarTourbillon – Limited Edition

The off-centre, skeletonized rotor has an oscillating mass in 21-carat gold. On a screw-mounted decorative stainless steel plaque, one finds the words “Flying Tourbillon” engraved and lined with gold. The new timepiece is fitted with a matching blue Louisiana alligator leather strap with fold fastener in platinum.
