Glashütte Original Dive deeper into the Original

Glashütte Original expands SeaQ line.

Cool stainless steel and intense blue lend the new timepieces a striking, fresh look. A special highlight of the stillyoung line is an exquisite newcomer whose rotating bezel sparkles with brilliant-cut diamonds and a sapphire. 

Exquisite timepieces with a history

In 2019, Glashütte Original introduced not only the SeaQ diver’s watch but the new “Spezialist” collection at the same time. The latter takes up the idea of instrument watches, drawing on a rich legacy of particularly accurate and robust timepieces developed to determine the time and location on land, water and in the air. Inspired by the first diver’s watch made in Glashütte, the Spezimatic Type RP TS 200 from 1969, the manufactory renews its diver’s watch tradition.  

With these new models, Glashütte Original adds two stainless steel variations to its existing line of diver’s watches. Applied Arabic numerals and indexes with Super-LumiNova inlays ensure optimal contrasts. The hands, too, feature generous luminous inlays.

The first model is fitted with a galvanic blue dial featuring a delicate sunray finish. The counter-clockwise rotating bezel is fitted with a deep blue scratchresistant ceramic inlay that takes up the blue hue of the dial.  

This model also proves convincing thanks to the clearly perceptible minute-click and the Super-LumiNova highlight on the triangle marking the start of the dive. This timepiece was tested for conformance with DIN and ISO standards and meets the most rigorous German and international quality standards in terms of water resistance, legibility, shock resistance, resistance to salt-water corrosion and many other criteria.

The sapphire on the bezel assumes the function of the triangle mark, which is normally used on diver’s watches to set the start time of a dive.

Since the blue gemstone replaces the luminous marking on the bezel, this version does not conform to the DIN and ISO standards, which require that the bezel be equipped with a triangle inlaid with luminous material. It goes without saying that all other criteria – in particular the water resistance and airtightness under over- and underpressure conditions – are thoroughly tested in-house, as are all SeaQ models, and conform to the standard for diver’s watches.

Reliable functionality and water resistance

Both timepieces feature an engraved case back, which is aligned and then secured in place with a threaded bottom ring. The engraving shows the trident maritime symbol, the Glashütte Original double-G and 20 waves, which represent the 20-bar water resistance.  

Both models are powered by the manufactory’s Calibre 3911. Enclosed within a 39.5 mm stainless steel case, the automatic movement features a running time of 40 hours, a second-stop function and a date window at 3 o’clock.

The new SeaQ is available with three strap versions: a black rubber strap with relief pattern, a water-resistant blue nylon mesh strap and a stainless steel bracelet with 8-step fine adjustment mechanism. Two strap versions are available for the SeaQ models with diamond-studded bezels: a stable, flat stainless steel bracelet with fine adjustment mechanism and a robust blue nylon mesh strap ensure a secure fit on the wrist.
