Glashütte Original SeaQ New Models

German fine watchmaking brand Glashütte Original has expanded its diving watch collection by launching two new models.

Introduced in 2019, the SeaQ diver’s watch takes inspiration from the first diver’s watch made in Glashütte, the Spezimatic Type RP TS 200 from 1969. The collection SeaQ offers reliable timepieces suitable for sports divers, water-sports athletes and adventurers of all kinds.

In 2020, Glashütte Original is adding 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 also 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 scratch resistant 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 elegant 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 second model is a glamorous timepiece featuring a rotating bezel studded with 47 brilliant-cut diamonds and a sapphire, ensuring a dazzling appearance.

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.

Both timepieces feature an engraved case back, which is aligned and then secured in place with a threaded bottom ring.

Both models are powered by the manufactory’s Calibre 39- 11. 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.
