Pues yo estaba preguntándome lo mismo ¿qué será ese 38? Suena raro ¿no? la semana del año... raro raro, ¿quién quiere saber la semana del año en qué está?
Taking the needs of a modern business traveler into consideration, the designers developed the Senator Calendar Week. This noble timekeeper allows its wearer to inform him- or herself of the current calendar week, date, and day of the week at just one glance.
A large window underneath the 12 o’clock marker provides information about the calendar week in red numerals.
The display was designed according to the same principle as that of Glashütte Original’s characteristic panorama date.
The hand at 8 o’clock, across from the panorama date at 4 o’clock, tells the observer the current day of the week.
The design of the calendar week module, developed especially for this model, is technically demanding.
The calendar week change always takes place on Sunday night with the week wheel turning one tooth further.
During every change, the spring storing the energy is tensioned one-sixtieth in order to save up enough energy for the big change that occurs at the end of the year.
The change from calendar week 53 to 01 takes place when calendar week “54” is next on the list.
A release opens the stored energy and the week wheel turns the seven steps necessary to get to calendar week 01.
In order to guarantee a gentle turning of the display disk, Caliber 100-05 was additionally outfitted with a centrifugal force brake.
The individual displays are set by correctors found on the case sides.
The cumulative corrector offers the advantage of moving all displays, including the date, the day of the week, and the calendar week, forward one step at once.
Furthermore, the individual correctors offer the opportunity of individually setting each display.
Vamos, una maravilla de la relojería, independientemente de su utilidad práctica, que para mí es cero patatero
