The Basics

The PanoMaticCounter XL presents its curiously fascinating counter complication in an elegant and effective manner. Red numerals appear on a black ground in a double-digit window at one level positioned at 9 o’clock. The wearer activates the counter using three pushers positioned on the left side of the stainless steel case. The plus pusher at 9 o’clock moves the count forward, one unit at a time, from 00 to 99; the minus pusher at 8 o’clock counts down, and the zero pusher at 10 o’clock resets to zero (00). A superb example of the art of engineering, the PanoMaticCounter XL features the Calibre 96-01, a classic column wheel chronograph with flyback function. Comprising 584 individually-crafted components, the 96-01 is based on the award-winning Glashütte Original Caliber 95. Its patented bilateral winding mechanism uses step gears to transmit energy quickly and efficiently to the movement and enables an ‘intelligent’ accommodation to the behavior of the wearer. Complementing this remarkable movement is the novel counter complication requiring 217 individual components. Directly opposite the counter window, at 3 o’clock, is the visually compelling Glashütte Original panorama date display, with its seamless presentation of the date in white numerals on a black ground. Aligned along the vertical axis are the off-center hour and minute display in the lower half of the dial and, in the upper half, the large chronograph stop-seconds scale, raised above the galvanized black dial and flanked by the subsidiary seconds and 30-minute counters, whose zero points have been rotated 60° to guarantee optimum legibility.

About Glashütte Original

Glashütte Original logo

With the reunification of Germany in 1990 came the transformation of VEB Glashütter Uhrenbetriebe into the Glashütter Uhrenbetrieb GmbH. The company is the official legal heir to all formerly independent watch companies extant in Glashütte up to 1951. Since 1994 the brand name “Glashütte Original” has stood for fine German watchmaking with a high degree of production depth. In 2000 … Glashütte Original was honoured for the first time with the much sought-after title of “Watch of the Year”: Readers of the trade publication “Armbanduhren” and the “Welt am Sonntag” newspaper put the classic Senator “Perpetual Calendar” in first place. In October the Manufactory joined the Swatch Group Ltd., an important step for the growth of the locally renowned brand into a global luxury brand.
