Hands-on With the Glashutte Senator Navigator and PanoNavigator



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.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. I have recently become obsessed with the Navigator. Thanks for posting the pics. Now, if you could just send me one, I’d really appreciate it…

  2. A great alternative for my “want” of an IWC Big Pilot ref 5004. I aim to pursue the Senator Navigator.
