Glashutte Original Vintage Sixties: Reminiscence to an era of new beginnings
Watch connoisseurs mainly associate the name Glashutte with a watchmaking tradition that is meanwhile more than 170 years old. It has made the name of this small town in the Erzgebirge in Saxony famous all over the world. Still, the watchmaking industry is dominating the economic structure in Glashutte where more than every tenth inhabitant is working in this industry. The masterpieces from the Glashutter Uhrenbetriebe GmbH which are sold under the brand name Glashutte Original today rank among the best luxury timepieces that are manufactured in Germany and they are also much in demand internationally. With the Vintage Sixties the manufactory bears in remembrance to an era that is current in the public awareness as "Swinging Sixties" up to now and that involved a push for modernization on many levels in most developed industrialized countries. Fans of high-quality timepieces, however, do not only associate Twiggy Style, mini skirt and a completely new music culture with it but in particular the fascinating watch design of these years.
A simple timepiece - and still an eye-catcher
In whatever form – the Vintage Sixties is pure understatement. It does without any splendor and lavish decoration, appears factual and functional. But still, the Glashutte Original Vintage Sixties under no circumstances looks too sober to attract the eyes as elegant dress watch on the wrist of an elegant gentleman. This is ensured by just a few details that give the line a unique, characteristic "face": simple stroke indexes - in gold for the hours and in silver-grey for the minutes - the slim, golden hands and the distinctive Arabic numerals 3, 6, 9 and 12 o'clock. The latter stands out through their typography which remind of Asian brush drawings. The 39 millimeters Sixties is powered by a mechanic movement of the caliber 39-52 with automatic winding. Its power reserve is up to 40 hours. The Vintage Sixties Editions are available as Sixities Automatic, Sixities Chronograph and Sixties Panorama Date.
