The GLASHÜTTE ORIGINAL PanoInverse Limited Edition opens up magnificent insights and views. Its movement serves as a canvas for a completely new interpretation of street art: filigreed skyscraper canyons on the front and back pull us irresistibly under their spell. Like any genuine exploration of a city, we discover something new on every street corner – from the clean lines of urban architecture to a cool mural in the making. On the front side, we cross the city from a great height and let its silhouette fire up our imagination. The journey continues on the back. The skyscrapers come closer and we make out revelatory slogans on the billboard ads. We see window cleaners at work and catch a glimpse of a graffiti artist spraying a familiar logo on the wall. And finally, on one of the balconies, we spot a local resident – who appears to be watching us.
On this GLASHÜTTE ORIGINAL PanoInverse Limited Edition a refined, laser-engraved, galvanic black rhodium skyline runs across the three-quarter plate and the butterfly bridge, and is taken up again on the back of the watch. Not only do the sapphire crystals on the front and back and the partially skeletonized movement provide transparency, they also entice viewers into this street-artwork: The wearer’s own wrist is visible through the watch and becomes part of its history.
A city conceived by the designers and watchmakers from Glashütte cannot help but appear in an elegant costume. The polished and satin-brushed 42-mm platinum case sets the stage, and the Golden Ratio – precisely calculated proportions felt to be particularly harmonious – governs not just the architecture of buildings, but the design of the Pano Collection as well. These well balanced proportions are reflected in the asymmetric layout of the hour and minute displays, the small second and the understated power reserve at 2 o’clock. The colour of the GLASHÜTTE ORIGINAL PanoInverse Limited Edition is rounded off by a grey Louisiana alligator nubuck leather strap with a platinum double fold fastener that offers elegant wearing comfort.
