Sixties Chronograph 1-39-34-03-22-04 - Glashütte Original
A look at life in the Sixties
An iconic timepiece connects past and present: this retro-modern chronograph was inspired by the feel for life in the 1960s – a decade that had a decisive influence on music, fashion and architecture. This elegant timepiece presents a decoratively hand-finished, silver-coloured dial and features a highly accurate manufactory movement with automatic winding.
The 42-mm stainless steel case is ultra-slim and polished to a high gloss. A special form-fitting sapphire crystal case back offers superb views of the mechanical movement and contributes to remarkable comfort for the wearer, allowing the watch to fit snugly around the wrist. The characteristic retro look extends to the finely crafted strap in Louisiana alligator leather, whose discreet textured scaling rounds off the design of this timepiece perfectly.
The slightly curved golden hands glide gently over the domed dial’s galvanic silver surface. The incised hour markers, characteristic luminous dots and the flamboyant typeface used for the numerals offer the familiar look of Sixties design. The small second is positioned at three o’clock, the 30-minute counter at nine. With their refined vinyl-type finish, both displays fit harmoniously within the overall design.
The Sixties Chronograph is equipped with a so-called slide-way system, a particularly robust system that proved popular at the time. This stylish timepiece offers the classic stop-second, a small second and a 30-minute counter. The manufactory’s 39-34 movement runs at a frequency of 4 Hz; its individual components are elaborately decorated by hand. The rotor presents the brand’s signature Double-G logo and is fitted with a 21-carat gold oscillating mass.
