Glashütte Original PanoMaticInverse Limited Edition iN Dresden

The PanoMaticInverse Limited Edition by Glashütte Original celebrates Dresden, where its predecessor was founded in 1845. This model showcases an inverted movement with the escapement visible on the dial and features hand-engraved depictions of Dresden landmarks on the front plate and the Elbe promenade on the reverse. Although officially established after the Berlin Wall fell, Glashütte Original has roots in the region’s early watchmaking history, stemming from an East German state-owned enterprise and embodying the true essence of a vertically integrated manufacture.

The 42mm case with a thickness of 12.3mm is made of platinum with a polished finish and brushed case bands. Mounted by a fixed bezel with a smooth surface in matching platinum.On the flipside is a sapphire exhibition caseback that allows a view into the inner workings of the mechanical movement. It features a skeletonized rotor, an oscillating weight decorated with a hand engraving of the Frauenkirche “lantern”, plus another view of Dresden that differs from the dial side.It comes equipped with a knurled setting-crown and protruding lugs that provide a comfortable wrist-fit and robust framing to showcase the main attraction found on the dial. All topped by a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides. Water-resistance can reach up to 50 meters (164 feet).Time is exhibited on a clear sapphire dial which is set on top of the three-quarter plate. Instead of standard hour indices, since this dial is essentially a picturesque engraving, in order to assist with telling time we can follow along to the various blued screws that don’t complete a full cycle, but are present and scattered enough to serve as a handy reference.The design of the watch features intricate engravings of Dresden's historical landmarks on both the front and back. Moving away from traditional striping on the dial-side three-quarter plate, the watch instead boasts a hand-engraved depiction of the Frauenkirche dome and "lantern," a prominent church in the city's center, along with the nearby Academy of Fine Arts, which overlooks the Elbe river. Completing the scenic depiction are added elements of a hot air balloon, birds, and clouds in the background, bringing a sense of life and movement to the scene.The blued steel central hour/minute hands are semi-skeletonized, to avoid obstructing the view to all the hand engraved beauty of this artistic dial. A standout feature of Glashütte Original watches is the Panorama Date, introduced in 1997. This large date window consists of two concentric discs on the same level, separated by a barely visible curved line, making it both legible and aesthetically pleasing. In this model, the date is strategically placed at 2 o’clock, featuring a dark gray background with white numerals for clarity and visual appeal.
