Glashütte is launching Spezialist, its fifth collection that makes its debut with the SeaQ, a dive watch that rolls together history and modernity.

The SeaQ by Glashütte Original is available in two versions: as the SeaQ in both a limited and an unlimited version, and as the SeaQ Panorama Date with black or blue dial. The “Spezimatic Type RP TS 200”, developed specifically for sports divers, served as an ideal example and inspiration for the new diver’s watch.

Fifty years ago, high quality and complex functionality were already key features of this Glashütte-made watch. With its limited edition SeaQ 1969, the Saxon manufactory takes up this tradition, citing the historic inscription on the black dial and the number of jewels. On the historic model, “Rubies 26” represents the promise of quality associated at the time with the Calibre 75. “Shockproof” refers to the construction of the diver’s watch, renowned even then for its particularly stable design.

Its water resistance up to 20 bar, which corresponds to approximately 200 metres, makes the SeaQ well equipped for changes in pressure underwater, even at greater depths. The second model, the SeaQ Panorama Date, is water resistant up to 30 bar, approximately 300 meters, and perfectly suitable for even professional divers. This essential water resistance of both models is enhanced by numerous details, such as the screw-down crown, the base plate secured by a ring on the SeaQ model or the centrally screwed sapphire crystal case back on the SeaQ Panorama Date.
