In August last year we mused aloud about how for those bored of blue, perhaps some green dials might be an option, using the example of the then newly-released Glashütte Original PanoMaticLunar Forest Green. Almost a year has passed since then, but they aren’t ready to abandon this dial quite yet.
In this new second green variant, the case is 18kt red gold and the same 40mm with a thickness of 12.7mm. It is water resistant to 50m.
To recap, the varnished dial’s green is inspired by the forest firs around GO, and made in-house. The dial colour is graduated, starting with a deep green at the centre and slowly changing to black at its edge. After the dial is given a coat of galvanic nickel, the outer edge is sprayed with black lacquer, after which the full surface is coated with transparent green lacquer. The hands are gold with Super-LumiNova.
The functions are an off-centred hour, minute, and small second, Panorama Date, and a moon phase display with a silver-coloured moon also made in-house.
Through the open case back is the automatic Calibre 90-02. It has a three-quarter plate with Glashütte stripes, polished blued screws, gold chatons, a skeletonised rotor with a 21 kt gold oscillating weight, beats at 28,800 VPH, and has a power reserve of 42 hours.
It comes on a 20mm green Louisiana alligator leather strap with an 18kt red gold pin buckle or deployant.
The RRPs are AUD 30,850 for one with a fold fastener (Ref. 1-90-02-23-35-30), AUD 30,850 for one with a small fold fastener (Ref.1-90-02-23-35-50), and AUD 28,100 for a buckle (Ref. 1-90-02-23-35-01).
