    Established in 1845, Glashütte is renowned for its functionality and it is one of the most reputable of the Saxony watchmakers. Synonymous with Glashütte design is their attention to detail on the movement and dials. This exquisite timepiece is no such exception, with its sunray-style guilloché pattern radiating across the dial and on the reverse, the signature Glashütte perlage surface decorates the three-quarter plates. This stunning PanoMatic Tourbillon features sixty-four brilliant-cut diamonds on the bezel with a Flying Tourbillon within. This great complication houses a balance, pallets and an escapement wheel within a cantilevered carriage that revolves 360 degrees every minute, hence compensating for the effect of gravity.
