This model captures the magic of the holidays in a very special way, its deep green evocative of traditional Christmas trees and Advent wreaths. The colour gradient of the hand-crafted dial is particularly impressive: beginning with an intense dark green in the centre, the colour changes into black at the edge. The face of the PanoMaticLunar, with its characteristic offcentre displays, is designed in accordance with the Golden Ratio, the legendary law of aesthetic harmony. The auxiliary dials for hours/minutes and the small seconds are positioned within the left half of the dial, while the Saxon watchmaker’s characteristic Panorama Date and elaborately crafted moon phase dominate the right half. The polished 40 mm diameter red gold case and crown form a warm contrast to the dial’s rich green. The glossy green Louisiana alligator leather strap rounds off this festive timepiece in an opulent manner. A sapphire crystal case back offers generous views of the hand-crafted 90-02 automatic movement. Numerous details, including the Glashütte three-quarter plate and the duplex swan-neck fine adjustment, prove that the watchmaking arts of the Ore Mountains are as refined, in terms of filigree craftsmanship, as the area’s famous Christmas decorations.
Another timepiece from the German watchmaker also brings the festive atmosphere to the wrist. The Lady Serenade appears as a genuine ice princess in radiant white. A razor-thin mother-of-pearl dial provides an elegant backdrop to the display of hours, minutes and seconds. Delicate diamond indexes and pearl-like strings on the dial offer refined reflections and enhance the sparkling light of the 52 brilliant-cut diamonds on the bezel and the diamond cabochon on the crown. The snowy white hue of the dial is taken up by a Louisiana alligator leather strap with rose gold fold-over clasp. This Lady Serenade, too, is powered by the hand-crafted 39-22 manufactory movement, whose refined decorative finishes and embellishments can be admired through the sapphire crystal case back.
