Glashütte Original PanoMaticLunar

Baselworld 2012:   Glashütte Original PanoMaticLunar — a new design from the high-end German watchmaker.  When I mentioned earlierthat the 2012 Glashütte Original collection is phenomenal — specifically, it was the new “Pano” pieces that jumped out at me first.  Among the newly designed Pano editions debuting at Baselworld 2012 are three new versions of the PanoMaticLunar.  The new models feature a larger case, dial (and slightly thinner bezel) presenting the classic elements of the originals – the off-centre hour/minutes and subsidiary seconds dials – while subtly enhancing spatial composition, detail and finishings to create a distinctly contemporary look and feel.  It all looks and feels very balanced, despite the asymmetrical layout.  Perhaps because the placement of the dials has been determined in accordance with the divine proportion, otherwise known as the golden ratio, the legendary law of aesthetic harmony.  Twelve years on, the Pano remains as exquisite as ever — I love it!

      @f5a20c84b7b2d28e5aa6aa3c12db4ecd:disqus working on it.  old case was 39.3 mm, so this one surely pushes to 40mm or larger..but oddly they failed to mention new size in the materials I was provided.will find out…Kyle

        Thanks Kyle!  I wonder how the ‘regular’ PML sizes up to the ‘XL’ PML.  I would be interesting as the XL already occupies the 42mm spot.  

        From the pictures it would appear that this new version of the PML has a thinner bezel compared to the XL…so perhaps they ‘wear’ quite similarly but have a different feel with the regular PML being more elegant and the XL being more causal/rugged.

           @f5a20c84b7b2d28e5aa6aa3c12db4ecd:disqus oh sure!  and yes, good observation — the bezel is slightly thinner (failed to mention this but have since added it above).  will let you know on diameter.

           Hi @f5a20c84b7b2d28e5aa6aa3c12db4ecd:disqus  Glashutte informs me that the case is 40mm.  Seems about right to me!
