Another unique color enters the collection of everyday steel watches.
Saxonian brand continues its annual series of the special Sixties pieces. This time in a form of an elegant three-hander and a chronograph with gorgeous colorful dials, utilizing the so-called dégradé effect. This time it’s all about the glacier blue bringing tons of freshness to the time-proven design, involving round steel cases – a 39-mm one for regular Sixties, and 42-mm for Sixties Chronograph, – domed sapphire crystal, and the trademark inlayed hour markers. The layout is very clean and versatile, with no date windows, lots of air, and perfect symmetry at every level: the two-eye chronograph features a 30-minute counter at 9 and small seconds at 3.
Driven by the in-house automatic calibers 39-52 and 39-47, both pieces have a hacking-seconds function as well as a 40-hour power reserve. And of course, both movements are visible through the transparent casebacks, revealing the typically German three-quarter plates with Glashütte stripe finishings as well as skeletonized gold oscillating weights. Presented on a brown-grey nubuck calfskin straps, the Glashütte Original Sixties Ref. 1-39-52-14-02-04 and Glashütte Original Sixties Chronograph Ref. 1-39-34-04-22-02 are priced at 6600 and 8100 Euro respectively.
