More and more women enjoy mechanical movements and Glashütte Original’s two watch collections for women – PanoMatic Luna and Lady Serenade – are fitted with in-house automatic calibres. With Saint Valentine’s Day just around the corner, GO presents a romantic version of its Lady Serenade with pink sapphire crystal accents and a diamond-set bezel, colours designed to evoke the appearance of the first crocus flowers after the winter months. Limited to 50 pieces, the feminine proportions yet sturdy stainless steel case of the Lady Serenade Valentine’s Day 2022 make it an ideal everyday companion.
The 36mm stainless steel case has a height of 10.20mm and offers 50m water-resistance. It is polished throughout and has a large diamond-tipped crown that is easy to manipulate and a detail that women with manicures will appreciate. Both the dial and caseback are protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The wide bezel is set with 52 brilliant-cut diamonds for an extra touch of luxury.
Inspired by the colours of the crocus flower, the harbingers of spring in Switzerland, the dial combines the delicate pastel iridescence of the mother-of-pearl dial with touches of pink and a vivid crocus-coloured alligator strap. The white mother-of-pearl background sets the stage for the applied Roman numerals at XII, III and IX. The stars of this timepiece are the eight heart-shaped pink sapphire crystal hour markers that add a burst of colour to the scenery. Like the applied numerals, the brass hour, minute and central seconds hands are rhodium-plated. At 6 o’clock, the Lady Serenade features a rounded trapezoid-shaped date window with a light coloured background to match the dial.
The Lady Serenade Valentine’s Day 2022 is fitted with a Glashütte Original manufacture automatic movement – calibre 39-22 – with a 4Hz/28,800vph frequency and a power reserve of 40 hours. In keeping with its Saxon watchmaking heritage, the wheel bridge used at GO covers three-quarters of the movement’s surface and is decorated with the traditional Glashütte stripe finishing and bevelled edges. Another typical Glashütte feature is the swan-neck fine adjustment to regulate the watch. The large skeletonised rotor has a heavy metal oscillation weight and displays the distinctive double-G symbol of GO automatic movements.
