Mühle-Glashütte S.A.R. Mission-Timer TITAN

The Mühle-Glashütte S.A.R. Rescue-Timer supports the foreman of the Maritime Search and Rescue Service (DGzRS) for more than 20 years. To mark its anniversary, the German watch brand is expanding its S.A.R. family with a new model: the S.A.R. Mission-Timer TITAN.

The new Mühle watch not only features a sporty and functional design, but also has a completely redesigned housing. This has a diameter of 43 millimeters and like the S.A.R. Rescue-Timer the rounded, closed lugs.

The case of the S.A.R. Mission-Timer TITAN is made of particularly light and biocompatible titanium. With its screw-down crown, it can withstand water pressure of up to 50 bar, putting it somewhere between the Sea-Timer BlackMotion and S.A.R. Rescue-Timer on.

The case back is provided with a finely detailed engraving, which shows the coastline of Germany and the operational area of the sea rescuers on the North and Baltic Seas. On the other hand, the locations of the sea rescue headquarter in Bremen and the Mühle Glashütte manufactory in the eastern Ore Mountains are indicated in the engraving.

The case back also makes the difference when it comes to the regular collection watch and the special series of 63 unique pieces to launch the new S.A.R. Mission-Timer TITAN.

Because every case back of this limited edition is engraved with the name and silhouette of one of the 63 sea rescue cruisers or boats of the current rescue fleet of the DGzRS – and therefore is an absolutely unique piece.

In addition, the 63 unique S.A.R. Mission-Timer TITAN are presented in a special watch case created in partnership with the family business Koehler Paper and the communications agency Lehanka. This packaging was made from a very high-quality and sustainable watch packaging of recycled paper.

The top of the S.A.R. Mission-Timer TITAN is crowned by a scratch-resistant black ceramic bezel. It encloses a 3 millimetre thick, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, which allows an unclouded view of the extremely readable dial at all times.

In the new Mühle watch, this has a finely subdivided minute track, with which the time can be read with an accuracy of up to an eighth of a second. The dial continues to show that it belongs to the S.A.R. family with its distinctive triangles at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock and the wide indices with minute numerals.

These are not simply covered with luminous material, but are manufactured with the help of recessed cut-outs that can accommodate an extremely large amount of luminous material. In this way, they ensure superb readability at night and in the dark.

Finally, there is the large date of the S.A.R. Mission-Timer TITAN. In the new S.A.R. model, it is around 30 percent larger than in comparable watches, making it easy to read the date without a magnifying glass.

In addition to the large date, it is equipped with the efficient Mühle rotor and the particularly shock-resistant woodpecker neck fine adjustment. In this way, the automatic movement is regulated in six positions and adjusted in such a way that its rate values are between 0 and +8 seconds/day.
