Introducing The Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar

Last year at Baselworld, Glashütte Original released the three-handed Senator Excellence with the new caliber 36 automatic movement. This year, things are bumping up a notch or two with the new Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar. Similar to the older Senator Perpetual Calendar, the Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar takes it a step further with a few aesthetic changes and an updated caliber 36-02 movement.

The Senator Excellence Perpetual Calendar is available in stainless steel with either an alligator strap or a steel bracelet and in red gold on a strap with either a pin buckle or a folding clasp. The case measures 42mm in diameter and 12.8mm thick. The dials on both models are silvered and have the same layout. The dial displays the date, day, moonphase, and leap year display. The big date display can be found at four o'clock, with the day and month displayed at 10 and two 0'clock, respectively. The moonphase is displayed in a subsidiary dial at seven o'clock. The handset is the familiar blued steel configuration you've seen on the Senator Excellence from last year, with the double-G at the end of the center seconds hand.

Furthermore, the watch is powered by the caliber 36-02 movement, which is a perpetual calendar built on top of the caliber 36 base. The caliber 36 was not only impressive for it's 100-hour power reserve and silicon hairspring, but also because its chronometry standards far exceed those required for COSC certification.
