The Watch Quote™ - October 26th, 2010
Glashütte Original has announced an exceptional tribute to marine chronometers and the art of navigation at sea: the noted German maker of high-end mechanical watches has recovered and restored thirteen original marine chronometers and paired each with an officially certified Senator Chronometer Platinum. The two mechanical chronometers are linked, apart from aesthetic details, by a shared tradition of high-precision watchmaking in Glashütte.
Both timepieces represent the finest of German watchmaking traditions: the marine chronometers originally manufactured in Glashütte have been lovingly restored by experts from Glashütte Original’s Atelier. The second member of this extraordinary set is the Platinum edition of the high end Saxon manufacture’s extraordinary Senator Chronometer, winner of multiple “Watch of the Year” awards in 2010 and one of the finest of contemporary mechanical timepieces. Set side by side in a handmade oak case, these exceptional chronometers form a unique and distinctive tribute to the history of navigation and the role of precision timekeeping at sea.
