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 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 diver timepiece was tested for conformance with DIN and ISO standards and meets the most rigorous German and international quality standards. The second model is particularly enchanting: the glamorous timepiece features a rotating bezel studded with 47 brilliant-cut diamonds and a sapphire, ensuring a dazzling appearance.
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 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.
