Glashütte Original - Preview Baselworld 2014: PanoMaticInverse

Glashütte Original - PanoMaticInverse.

Introduced to great success in 2008, the PanoInverse XL was the first of the Saxon watchmaker’s timepieces to reveal its inner beauty, presenting this very special form of fine adjustment on the face of the watch.

The PanoMaticInverse, which celebrates its debut at Baselworld 2014, takes this idea further and is presented here with the new Calibre 91-02, a precise automatic movement with a ...
