Over the most recent year or two, Glashütte Original has gradually been extending the SeaQ group of perfect replica in a cautious and professional way. The original model has since had somewhat new dial plans, jewel bezels, and now it has filled in size, had a bigger ‘panorama date’ complication and got the valuable metal treatment. It is these bigger, panorama models I am investigating today.
Before I start, I need to say that I like the fundamental SeaQ looks. I think it is an attractive legacy configuration (originally known as the Spezimatic) and, with the current business pattern showing the prevalence of reissues, a conspicuous decision to zero in on for the brands plunge perfect replica contributions. As per the Glashütte Original site, there are right now 20 SKUs in the ‘Spezialist’ family, albeit this incorporates choices for various tie decisions, and distinctive dial tones. The SeaQ Panorama Date represents 10 of these gratitude to the utilization of differing measures of valuable metals. We should burrow in…
The Spezimatic evolved
The case is a 43.2mm issue, and follows a similar shape as the more modest standard SeaQ watches…just greater, and fatter. The slimmer 39.mm model is 12.15mm thick, yet the Panorama Date development makes the case meat up to 15.65. Because of the bigger case distance across everything feels in extent. It is even and sits well on top of the wrist. While the arm in the photographs isn’t mine, I can say from direct experience that the stature doesn’t influence the steadiness. Tall perfect replica can be hard to adjust however Glashütte Original has done well to think about this and discredit the stature with the case size and the drag configuration to guarantee it unquestionably embraces the wrist and waits. Bravo!
As recently referenced, the SeaQ Panorama Date sees the presentation of valuable metals in the accessible case choices. Tempered steel is joined by 18k rose gold. A full rose gold case, bezel and crown is accessible for the marginally more extreme people, or the bi-shading emphasess highlight a hardened steel case with rose gold bezel and crown for a more downplayed lavishness. I appreciate rose gold more than yellow gold. The hotter tones appeal to me somewhat more and look especially tasteful on the bi-shading models. The hands coordinate the bezels in however much they utilize a similar metal. Gold bezels are coordinated with gold hands, and steel bezels have steel hands.
Glashütte Original has developed a reasonable standing for building delightful perfect replica which are a joy to wear and joy to take a gander at. You’d be excused for imagining that the SeaQ is a fairly coy contribution in comparison to the remainder of the brand’s collection, however there is undiscovered greatness under the surface the eye. This is a perfect replica for the wearer to appreciate, for is it the person who will notice and grope the quality close on the wrist. The dial is no exemption for this. From the start it appears to be practically held, however look a little nearer and there’s some genuine dashes of class.
The dials are completely made in Glashütte Original’s own dial creation office in Pforzheim. All the shading varieties highlight a great sunburst design. The shadings accessible are dark (accessible just on the gold and bi-shading models), dark (accessible on all case materials) and blue (accessible just on the treated steel models. The dim and dark dials have dark bezel embeds and the blue dials have a coordinating blue bezel embed. The sunburst functions admirably with all tones, yet looks extraordinary on the dark dials. Combined with the bi-shading metals…It’s a truly attractive combination. Did I notice it’s my favourite?
There is another unobtrusive contrast between the dials of the gold and bi-shading models and the treated steel models. The treated steel dials have all markers printed, while the models using the gold have gorgeous applied records and numerals, further improving the top notch tasteful. Flawless stuff. The printed files are consistent with the original SeaQ perfect replica from the last part of the 60s and 70s, however the applied records are simply a lot more pleasant in my opinion.
There’s a gathering round the back
The developments from Glashütte Original are consistently a delight to observe and are commonly German in their development and wrapping up. Immaculate, useful yet still extravagant. Extravagant may not be the best word yet I needed to keep the similar sounding word usage there. Sue me.
The SeaQ Panorama Date utilizes the Caliber 36-13. It’s an in-house development which goes far to legitimize the costs of these perfect replica The stunningly completed development has all that you’d anticipate from a German watchmaker: sloped edges, cleaned steel parts heat-blued/cleaned screws, Glashütte-striped three-quarter plate, all finished off with a skeletonized rotor made of 21k gold. In the event that that wasn’t sufficient, the rate is changed by swan-neck spring and holds a 100 hours of force save. As I said, this truly is a delight to take a gander at. Fortunately, Glashütte Original is sharp for us to value its persistent effort and delightful development, so it tends to be seen through the sapphire showcase case back. Bravo again!
As I recently referenced, there is 20SKUs for the SeaQ setup, and 10 for the Panorama date family alone. These are to a great extent down the case alternatives, yet additionally the lash choices as well. They are: a treated steel arm band, elastic
or on the other hand an engineered nylon 2-piece strap.
The wristband is just accessible on the full hardened steel models, which is fine as my most loved is the nylon lash alternative. The elastic is a cutting edge style which is a tad of a disgrace. The other, more modest SeaQ models are matched with a jungle style elastic lash which would have looked a lot more pleasant than the conventional choice the Panorama Date is left with. The nylon ties are dim for the dark and dim dials or blue for the blue dials. I appear to have been appreciating nylon ties on my perfect replica of late so that may factor into this preference.
Form and function
I think generally this is an exceptionally pleasant expansion to the Spezialist, SeaQ family from Glashütte Original. The German brand has made a fine showing with restoring the Spezimatic plan from 1969, and afterward bringing it up to its advanced degree of fine watchmaking. The utilization of valuable metals, the dazzling 36-13 development and the eminent by and large completing truly make this the perfect choice for the Glashütte Original authority searching for a jump perfect replica that coordinates their desire. Plunge perfect replica regularly experience the ill effects of the misguided judgment that they are ‘instrument watches’. Capacity over structure, anyway the SeaQ Panorama Date demonstrates that plunge perfect replica likewise have a spot in top of the line watchmaking. As a fanatic of plunge perfect replica and fine watchmaking, I say bravo Glashütte Original. Bravo indeed.
