Let me just say at the start that I am not a gold guy.
I’ve never owned a gold watch and I didn’t think I’d like the new Glashütte Original Senator Excellence Panorama Date Moon Phase in red gold.
How wrong first impressions can be.
The instant I slipped the watch on my wrist and closed the luxurious black Louisiana alligator leather bracelet, it was over. The Senator Excellence had me.
The 40mm red gold case looked great on my wrist, and the elegant silver-grained dial with its black hour indexes and railroad track with numbers in red, was perfectly balanced with the moon phase indication and the big date.
I wore the watch in various situations, and it worked well in all of them. Jeans and a button down shirt on the weekend? Check. Suit and tie for that dinner party? Great impression made. Business casual at a brand event after work? Rocked it.
