Sixties Iconic Collection by Glashütte Original

Sixties Iconic Collection

In 1964, VEB Glashütter Uhrenbetriebe (now known as Glashütte Original) launched one of the most iconic wristwatches of its time, the Spezimatic. Today, Glashütte Original pays tribute to this iconic era with a special collection inspired by the design of the models from the ’60s. The Sixties Iconic Collection comprises five elegant, colorful timepieces. They merge the unmistakable design of the sixties with exceptional dials in unique hues that give the models their names: Sixties Red, Sixties Golden, Sixties Aqua, Sixties Brown and Sixties Grey.

All five models are characterised by an eye-catching dégradé effect on the dial, which is achieved using an extremely complex and time-consuming process in Glashütte Original’s own dial manufactory in Pforzheim, Germany. In this process the dials are first galvanised, then layers of lacquer are added by hand in various steps.
Finally, a further colour is carefully applied to this “canvas” using a special spray gun: a technique which produces, depending on the angle, an individual colour gradient, known as the dégradé effect, which renders each watch unique.
