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!
