A new cinematic award is set to celebrate its premiere next year: the noted German watch manufactory Glashütte Original will support the Berlin International Film Festival 2017 with the inaugural presentation of the Glashütte Original Documentary Film Award.
The award for the best documentary film is endowed with 50,000 euros in prize money. Altogether around 18 documentaries will be nominated, selected from current submissions to the Berlinale 2017 sections Competition, Panorama, Forum, Generation, Berlinale Special, Perspektive Deutsches Kino and the special series Culinary Cinema. A three‐member jury will choose the winner, with the prize money to be split between the director and the producer of the award‐winning film. The Glashütte Original Documentary Film Award will be presented during the official awards ceremony at the Berlinale Palast.
The first limited edition Senator Moon Phase Skeletonized Edition view came in 18k rose gold. If you like your watches to seem more discreet, then the white gold situation is a boon. 1 thing to notice is that the whole case is mirror-polished, which means two things: 1) it glimmers and glows like mad underneath direct light and two) for clumsier owners, the opinion is a scratch magnet.Between the moon phase sub-dial in 10 o ‘clock, cone shaped power reserve indicator at 2 o’clock, moments sub-dial at 6 o’clock, and the decorated movement elements, the dial could veer on appearing almost chaotic but also the cohesive implementation succeeds. It’s a wonderfully elaborate design done in a clearly Glashütte way.Case dimensions remain the same at 42mm in diameter and 11.2millimeters in height. It seems modest, but the watch really wears somewhat bigger than you might think. That is because that the lugs are quite long. They do curve downwards so wearing comfort is not too bad. On the other hand, the lug to lug length of this watch is rather substantial, so it resembles like a 44mm or perhaps 45mm watch. Fortunately, the situation is rather thin, which ought to be the situation for a watch that is as elaborate as this.The crown doesn’t screw down, but it’s signed together with the double-G logo of Glashütte Original. That is pretty much standard stuff for dressy hand-wound watches such as this.
