Pre-Baselworld: Sixties Iconic Square Chronograph Collection

February 3, 2017

Glashütte Original will debut an all-new square-shaped cushion case watch collection at Baselworld next month called the Sixties Iconic Square Chronograph.

Consisting of five variations, all housed in 41.35 x 41.35 mm (12.6 mm thick) stainless steel cases, the Sixties Iconic Square is similar to the round shaped, time-only Sixties Iconic collection that was launched in 2015, particularly in that both have funky colored dials.

The watch is powered by an automatic caliber 39-34 which measures 31.15 mm x 7.2 mm, beats at 4Hz (28,800 vph), has 51 jewels, and a 40-hour power reserve. Visible through a clear caseback, the movement has a Glashütte three-quarter plate with Glashütte stripe decoration, along with bevelled edges, and a 21K gold oscillating weight.

There are 5 dial colors as follows Graphite, Ocean, Forest, Fire, and Tangerine. And you can read about the manufacturing of the dials, including the more complicated graphite version, here.

In addition to the square cushion case and colorful dials, the collection is characterized by domed dials, curved hands, and distinctive curved Arabic numeral hour markers at 12 and 6 o’clock. Water-resistance is 30 meters. Each variation is limited to 25 pieces.
