First up in our exclusive trip to the Swatch Group’s Basel Show… Glashutte. First off, the handmade aviator you see before you is only about $8900 with big date and $4900 without. This means that any one of us can own a truly hand-made timepiece for less than the price of used Crown Victoria. Not too bad.

The Senator Navigator hearkens back to Glashutte’s experience as a munitions maker during a certain uncomfortable era in German history. Both models, with or without the big date, are automatics and have a completely manufactured movement.

Next, we have the PanoNavigator. OH. MY. GOD!


There are only 50 PanoNavigators in the whole entire world. They’re made of platinum and include a fly-back chronograph, big date, and are as heavy as my mom. It’s truly a wonder to behold. This one will cost something like $30,000, so go ahead and take out that second mortgage. We won’t tell your soon-to-be-ex-wife.
