In the spring of 2019, Glashütte Original introduced the SeaQ diver’s watch, the debut model in a new collection. Inspired by the first diver’s watch made in Glashütte, the Spezimatic Type RP TS 200 from 1969, the SeaQ combines history and modernity. The new models extend the manufactory’s SeaQ line with timepieces that appeal to connoisseurs of gold or bi-colour sport watches. High-contrast black and gold lend the red gold version a powerful presence: the hands, Arabic numerals and rod indexes on the black dial with sunray finish feature elegant galvanic gold surfaces. The rotating bezel’s ceramic ring with white lacquer inlay, the generous use of luminous white highlights and the Panorama Date’s white numerals on a black ground ensure maximum contrast and enhanced clarity.
The galvanic grey dial of the bi-colour model, which is also enhanced with a sunray finish, takes up the silver-grey hue of the stainless-steel case. The warm glow of the rotating bezel and the crown, both fashioned in red gold, complements the cool shades of grey. Galvanic gold numerals, appliques and hands on the dial provide additional warm accents. The SeaQ Panorama Date is water-resistant up to 30 bar, around 300 metres, which makes it suitable even for professional divers. Numerous details, such as the screw-down crown and the centrally screwed sapphire crystal case back, support the water resistance of both models.
