RJ And Rob Talk About The Glashütte Original PanoMaticLunar
We received a box filled with German delights from Glashütte. For this podcast, we picked the Glashütte Original PanoMaticLunar with (forest) green dial to talk about.
We covered this Glashütte Original PanoMaticLunar earlier this year written by Balazs, but we received the watch as part of a bigger collection for review and thought it would be nice to chat about it on this Fratello on Air podcast episode.
Our Fratello on Air podcast is available via Buzzsprout, Soundcloud, Apple Podcast, Google Podcast, Deezer, Stitcher, and Spotify.
We talk about the dial, made by Glashütte Original in their dial manufactory. Having that dial manufacture means this brand can do almost everything in-house. Consequently, GO comes-up with some very cool dial colors and motifs. We’ve been to Glashütte in the past a few times. Every time the focus was on the development of the movements. And indeed, these movements — with hand-engraved balance bridges — are stunning, but unfortunately, we’ve never been to their dial making facility.
This facility is located in Pforzheim, that other heart of German watchmaking. During the Time to Move event in 2019, we had the opportunity to see (and try) some dial making demos by Glashütte Original and it left quite an impression.
We hope you enjoy listening to this podcast, which also includes a hilarious interlude featuring some classic German music, a brief discussion on what constitutes a micro-rotor, Rob’s analysis of how my collecting habits have changed over time, and more.
