Lovely Lilac

Romance is in the air as the day of hearts arrives.

A lilac is a sweet-scented beautiful bloom, growing from a sturdy shrub. The lilac bloom comes in various colors, with each color signifying something special. White lilacs symbolize purity and innocence. Blue lilacs are meant to show happiness and contentment. Magenta and deep pink lilacs represent love and passion. Stately violet lilacs symbolize spirituality. And light purple lilacs symbolize a first love. The delicate scent from this bloom is intoxicating and is said to bring happiness and joy. If you find yourself lucky enough to be near a lilac bush, lean in close and inhale the wonderful aroma. Trust me, you’ll be happy you did.

The lilac bloom has long been associated with love and romance throughout the ages. Artists from the Impressionist era, such as Vincent Van Gogh and Claude Monet, favored this blossom in their paintings. Perhaps that same elegance and stateliness of the beautiful lilac inspired the artisans of Glashütte Original.


The latest PanoMatic Luna ladies watch from Glashütte Original has so much about it to fall in love with. The stainless steel dial is always a classic choice, and Glashütte Original takes it one step higher with the diamonds on the bezel. The dial itself is elegant, being of white mother-of-pearl. The luster is a fitting backdrop for the diamonds – yes, more diamonds on the dial, but not as you’d expect. First, let’s look at the off-center hours, minutes, and small seconds. The numerals used are so stylized that they really are a design aspect on their own, done in a light lilac color. The small seconds is at 6 o’clock, though it actually takes the space of the 5 and 7 on the dial too. The remaining hours are marked with diamond rod indexes, which is just a touch of luxury that is perfect. Of course there is the panorama date window by the 4 o’clock, and the moon phase indicator by the 2 o’clock.  Complementing the lilac color of the hours is the purple Louisiana alligator leather strap with pin buckle. This entire watch is design perfection. There is depth to this PanoMatic Luna too. The movement is a Calibre 90-12 automatic, with a power reserve of roughly 42 hours.

I could go on and on about this Glashütte Original ladies watch (can you tell I love it?), but I might keep you from going to the boutique to pick one up. You’d best hurry, this is a limited edition of only 25 pieces.
