The Glashütte Pano appeared for the first time in 2001 with the sub-collection PanoRetroGraph. The model featured a motif of subdials for the time and seconds that overlapped and an alarm with not typical countdown function. The limited-edition was introduced with 50 watches in platinum.
The collection Glashütte Original Pano covers timepieces that include the distinctive Panorama Date that is typical for the design of this reputable manufacturer. The display for the date is very large and has become identifying of this German watchmaker in Saxony. Some Pano versions are at present long-established timepieces of this collection of Glashütte Original.

The Glashütte PanoInverse differs from the other collections in reference to the caliber movement which is manual winding. The diameter of the watch is 42 mm, and the height is 12 mm and what is also distinctive for the Glashütte PanoInverse is the function of display of power reserve. The power reserve is also slightly different featuring up to 41 hours and 31 jewels.
The Glashütte PanoInverse was released for the first time in 2008. It is a collection that showed the inner beauty of the watch by raising one element that was not exposed to the watch surface that is visible. Thus, the innovative fine adjustment with the swan neck is now shown to the public.

Glashütte PanoMaticLunar Watch

Glashütte PanoLunar Tourbillon
When we talk about the brand of Glashütte Original there are three things that we have to highlight and which refer to this brand: 1. Panorama Date as a distinctive feature; 2. The sophisticated moon phase; and 3. Flying Tourbillon designed in 1920. The watches in the PanoLunar Tourbillon collection because of the dual visuals which are asymmetric are exceptionally striking. The Tourbillon is aligned together with the display for minutes and hours and is positioned at the left part of the dial. The visual harmony is achieved with the moon phase and the window for the date on the right side.
The Flying Tourbillon is different than the classic in that it operates with one anchor. The display for the moon phase is an incredible design with shimmering stars in gold and moon laid out on a blue sky. The entire layout and design are inspired by the well-known golden ratio that has been an inspiration for many artists from history until now.
The power reserve is one of the best with 48 hours and the same diameter compared to the other model versions from the Glashütte Pano Collection with 40 mm and height of 13.10 mm. On the dial, the tourbillon cage features the small seconds beside the standard functions and the specific one for this collection i.e. the Flying Tourbillon.

There is only one watch in the PanoMaticCounter XL and the model was released in 2010. It has been known for the variety of interesting characteristics that it possesses and the relatively affordable price.

It can be used for counting many things from number 1 to number 99. The counter is represented via red numerals that are set on a striking black ground. The window for the Panorama Date in this version is positioned right next to 3 o’clock. There is a scale for stop-seconds and counter for half an hour.
