Glashütte Pure Black Ceramics Debuted Simple

Since 1845, the Glashütte Original watch factory has been active and reliable. It has produced many high-quality works and unique mechanical watches through traditional watchmaking techniques. . Recently, Socrates released a new pure black ceramic watch: Senator Perpetual Calendar, which reflects its superb ceramic watchmaking technology.

Scratch-resistant and hard, this is the best comment on the characteristics of ceramics. These advantages make ceramics the most ideal material for making watch cases. In this inspiration, the designer of Glashütte gave Senator Perpetual Calendar a different classic style appearance. The matte black ceramic case gives a sophisticated look to the sophisticated art of watchmaking, combining tradition and creativity in a new way.
The double-sided anti-glare sapphire crystal inlaid on the enlarged bezel makes the time and perpetual calendar clear and easy to read. The black background sets off the white week, month, and Glashütte’s typical large calendar window. Silver discs decorated with stars rotate under the faceplate, and there is a bright moon on the moon to show the moon phases. As a representative of the altar, Mr. Zhong praised Glasutti’s perpetual calendar as the most cost-effective perpetual calendar-the dial is clear and easy to read, and the complex functions are hidden behind it. Adhering to the consistent practical use of German watches, it is the favorite of senior watchmakers.
The leap year display is at 12 o’clock. When the red pointer points to L, it means that the year is a leap year. The visual impression of the face plate is simple and organized, and each function has ample space for display.

The ceramic case with a diameter of 42mm is equipped with a factory-made automatic caliber cal. 100-07, with a power reserve of 55 hours (positive and negative error is 10%), and a correction mechanism is set so that the second hand can synchronize the standard time at any time. Unlike other correction mechanisms, the second hand is not connected to the bearing or crown. In other words, when the crown is pulled out, the balance wheel and the movement are still running, which can reduce the pressure between the internal objects. The calibration mechanism of this watch must be activated by pressing another button located at 8 o’clock in the case. The oscillating weight can be reworked in both directions, providing a stable source of power for the movement.
A scratch-resistant black leather strap with light-colored stitching and ceramic buckle completes the perfect finish for this elegant, state-of-the-art watch.
