With this diver’s watch, the past of the German manufacturer resurfaces. Robust, this vintage style watch meets today’s rigorous quality standards.
While Glashütte Original is renowned for producing exceptional classic and elegant timepieces, in the 1960s the manufacture familiarized itself with the world of sports, notably, water sports. This little-known chapter of its history is now highlighted in a brand-new collection called Spezialist. A flagship model, the SeaQ invites us to explore the underwater world. Its design is inspired by a watch created in 1969 for scuba diving. A 39.5mm diameter steel case with a satin-polished finish protects a black dial with oversized numerals and hour-markers covered in beige Super-LumiNova®. These are pointed by large needles coated with the same luminescent material. The time information is completed by a date displayed in its window positioned at 3 o’clock. The whole is surrounded by a unidirectional bezel, allowing excursions to unfold in total silence. Each watch is subjected to a battery of tests over a period of 24 days. A certificate issued attests to the successful completion of all tests.
Inside the 200-meter waterproof box, the 39-11 caliber is in operation. Once wound, this self-winding movement provides approximately 40 hours of power reserve. A second stop system also allows a precise time setting.
The SeaQ is worn on a rubber strap with a pin buckle that makes it as comfortable to wear at sea as it is on land. An all-steel option is also available.
Price: 8,500 EUR
