Glashütte Original PanoMatic Counter XL

Post by andrema on Tue 04 Oct 2011, 11:32 pm

I had the opportunity to try on a Glashütte Original PanoMatic Counter XL at my local watch dealer in Hartford (see below). At first, I thought to myself...why would you have a counting complication? Still do, but it does function pretty nicely and offsets the BIG DATE on the RHS of the dial.

Overall, I was pretty impressed! It is on the "large size" of what I feel comfortable wearing, plus it has a polished finish...but I would not throw it out of bed for eating cookies!! The watch retails for appoximately $26K...but I am sure that I can get Al a "little lower" Smile

Here is a picture of the watch from "the internets":


I almost had the opportunity to try on a nice Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Tourbillon Chronograph ($230K), but an actual paying customer came in to ruin my fun!

If any of you are ever in Hartford, CT...Al is a great guy and his shop is AWESOME!!!! http://www.armstrongrockwell.com/

Here is an article from when it was introduced at Basel:

Baselworld 2010: Glashütte Original PanoMatic Counter XL by Kyle on March 18, 2010 I would consider using it for my golf game, but it only counts to 99… Well, this concept is almost so simple you wouldn’t think it has any value. But for some reason the Glashütte Original PanoMatic Counter XL has made the prospect of “counting” quite enticing. As GO says, “One. Two. Three….that’s a start. Now use your imagination”



Red numerals appear on a black ground in a double-digit window positioned at 9 o’clock. The wearer activates the counter using three pushers positioned on the left side of the stainless steel case. The plus pusher at 9 o’clock moves the count forward, one unit at a time, from 00 to 99; the minus pusher at 8 o’clock counts down, and the zero pusher at 10 o’clock resets to zero (00). Counter aside, this is one sharp looking watch:

Here is a cool video on the movement and functions:

That is a really cool watch and video. You could use
the counter function to count red heads!

Good idea Earl! I really like that watch. If I sell off my Invictas I could afford........................the tang on the buckle!!! Beautiful work of art to say the least.
