Glashütte Original SeaQ: A tool watch with history
Every single wristwatch from Glashütte Original draws from the rich history of the Saxon art of watchmaking whilst also displaying a contemporary interpretation of the tradition. The latest example of this is the Glashütte Original SeaQ which evokes a sports diving watch from 1969. Designed to meet the requirements of this sport, the Glashütte Original SeaQ is yet another testament to the advanced engineering skills and precision-mechanical expertise of this German watchmaker.
Glashütte Original SeaQ: A diving watch for professional use
Through dedication and a love of detail, the watch manufacturer has breathed new life into the classics with decades of history by creating authentic new timepieces. These include the Glashütte Original Vintage collection with the two Sixties and Seventies lines. These have now been joined by the Glashütte Original SeaQ based on the “Spezimatic type RP TS 200” from 1969 and which is also exhibited in the German Watch Museum in Glashütte. Specifically developed for sports and combat divers it is distinguished by its high degree of accuracy and stable design. The number of rubies and the “Shockproof” quality promise on the black dial highlight the high quality standard.
A collection with tradition: Glashütte Original SeaQ
Ever since the 19th century highly precise and reliable timepiece instruments for navigation and positioning have been manufactured in Glashütte. Numerous historical marine chronometers, observation watches, pilot watches and diver's watches are all proof of this expertise. Building on this rich tradition, Glashütte Original is launching a new collection: the SeaQ Diver's Watch that exquisitely blends history and modernity.
Glashütte Original SeaQ: A diver's watch made in Germany
Water-resistant up to 200 meters, the Glashütte Original SeaQ is very similar in its appearance and size to the original from 1969. The DIN and ISO-approved timepiece is a reliable companion for all sorts of adventures, but it also cuts a very fine figure with every business outfit.
The SeaQ Panorama Date sails off to sea as the technical flagship of the new line. This diver's watch is also DIN and ISO-approved and is water-resistant up to 300 meters. It meets the strictest quality standards in relation to water resistance, shock resistance and salt-water resistance. As indicated by the name, selected timepieces from this collection exude the specific finesse of the Glashütte watchmaker, namely the Panorama Date which displays the date in large format without dividers between the two numerals. It is available with a blue or black dial.
Glashütte Original SeaQ: Top features
In addition to the subtle vintage design, the Glashütte Original SeaQ line includes some style-defining, state-of-the-art technical characteristics and developments. These include the anti-clockwise rotating bezel with minute graduations in the ceramic inlay to set the dive time and the screw-down crown. The hands and appliqués on the dials are coated with Superluminova in order to provide excellent readability in all light conditions. The SeaQ has been produced in the color “Old Radium I” to highlight the retro look. It comes with three different strap types: A robust gray synthetic strap, a flat metal bracelet with a finely adjusted lock and folding clasp and thirdly a rubber strap that is also fitted with a folding clasp.
Manufacturing skill at the highest level
As with all the collections from this watchmaker, the two SeaQ and SeaQ Panorama Date diver’s watches are driven by high-end manufacture calibers. On the SeaQ this consists of the self-winding caliber 39-11 with stop-seconds function and swan-neck fine adjustment. The self-winding movement establishes a power reserve of at least 100 hours and is fitted with an innovative silicon hairspring. Thanks to the high-tech material, the wafer-thin balance spring is not only resistant to magnetic fields and temperature differences, but it also oscillates extremely isochronously ensuring an exceptionally constant frequency.
