Sixties Small Second 1-39-60-01-01-04 - Glashütte Original
A new arrival with character
The Sixties models have been an integral part of our Vintage Collection for years. Whether as a three-hand model, with Panorama Date or as a chronograph: these design classics have won fans around the world who love their subtle retro look. For the first time, we present this elegant timekeeper complete with a small second. In this new version, the fastest of the three hands has a stage of its own, thanks to a separate display at 6 o’clock.
Extra flat and comfortable
The 42 mm rose gold case is extra flat and polished to a high gloss. A specially shaped sapphire crystal case back provides the best possible view of the highly refined automatic movement and offers, at the same time, a high level of wearing comfort. With its intense hue, the matt green Louisiana alligator leather strap lends the timepiece a youthful freshness.
Domed silver dial
The small second is set within the galvanic silver dial and is decorated with a fine vinyl-type finish. The hands, just like the incised indexes, are colour-coordinated with the rose gold case. The three Arabic numerals refer to the 1960s with their typography and are printed in black. The sapphire crystal, which is anti-reflective on both sides, offers superb legibility, its domed shape echoed in the lightly curved form of the dial and hands.
The right rhythm
Inside the watch is an intricate automatic movement, elaborately hand-crafted in our own workshops. The manufactory calibre 39-60 beats at 28,800 half-oscillations per hour, driving the hour, minute and small second displays reliably and precisely. Its components feature refined decorative finishes, including Glashütte stripes, beveled edges, and polished screws. Together with the skeletonized rotor, these exquisite details can be admired through the specially formed sapphire crystal case back.
