The parliamentary series of sixties big calendar watches debuted at the world’s largest watch and jewelry show-the Basel International Watch & Jewellery Expo 2010 in Switzerland. It combines superb traditional mechanical watchmaking craftsmanship with a classic retro ’60s’ design. Unique details and dial finish design are both eye-catching and fashionable, evoking people’s memories of the unique shapes of the 1960s.
Glashütte Collection 60’s Large Calendar Watch
The raised galvanized black dial gives the prominent position to the large calendar display window, while the 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock positions use exquisite silver Arabic numerals to complement the exquisite black minute outer circle. The white gold hour, minute, and second hands have soft arcs, and the diamond-cut hour markers further enhance the simplicity and elegance of the entire design. Through the sapphire crystal case back, you can clearly see the 39-47 automatic movement and 21K gold pendant with double G logo. A polished stainless steel case and a well-made black Louisiana crocodile leather strap complete this twentieth-century vintage-designed watch.
