Default Glashutte Original's Sixties Fiery Orange models

What did everybody think about these nice new Glashutte Originals?

I know we saw their other Original Sixties watches just a few years ago.

These new Glashutte Original Sixties and Sixties Panorama Date Annual
Edition Fiery Orange have specs like a 39mm stainless steel case for the
Sixties version, and a 42mm case size for the Sixties Panorama Date.
Along with sapphire crystals front, and back, 30m WR, domed embossed
orange red with black lacquer degrade effect, diamond cut, and luminous
markers, and numbers, and hands, and Louisiana alligator leather straps.
With either the Calibre 39-52 automatic, or Caliber 39-47 behind things.

Some pictures for you...







Saw this over at Monochrome everyone...

The dial is something to get used to, that's for sure. Given the choice (and knowing the price), for that kind of money I would buy a fully restored gold Omega Constellation chronometer from the Sixties. The real thing with money to spare.

As always Frans, you make so much sense sir !

Can you imagine finding one of those Constellations, and adding it
to the collection, and then like you said for less than these above?!
Definitely would be extraordinary, and the smart way to go.

I just saw these recently, and wanted to make sure, and post
them up to be honest. ..Oh, and yes, these dials are really
something that is for sure.

Thanks so much Frans for your thoughts, and for just looking !

I have the (of course First World problem) misfortune of stumbling on watch finds at times the purse is empty Eddy Platt's first Dreadnought? Had to pull out of it at the last moment as the money was needed for important things for my family. The first Speedbird? About the same. A very well preserved 1965 Omega Constellation (Pie Pan in steel, not gold) with box, papers that had become yellow, etc. on the site of the Dutch hobby collector/dealer? I thought 750 EUR was a lot of cash and didn't buy it. Oh boy, what mistakes one can make!

As much as I admire the brand, I have to concur.

I realise that the constant focus on price is becoming a bit stale but in this case I was a bit taken aback by that same asking price. US$ 7,300 for the date version. For a steel watch that is a bit steep. Rolex territory. In fact (and yes, you may drive a wooden stake through my heart ), for that money I would buy an Explorer in case we are comparing new watches as opposed the Omega I mentioned.

Think a lot of us have that same problem Frans, and not even for such
amazing watches as you had in your sites ! Can't say how many
watches that were in my sites that are on a much lower level that ended
up getting away. Or I just never picked up sir. Honestly don't think you
made any mistakes Frans. ..You just have a ton of common sense really !
