Mühle-Glashütte is marking the 15th anniversary since Germany’s sea rescue force DGzRS first started using its watches with the launch of its S.A.R. Rescue-Timer in aluminium bronze.
The anniversary model, which is limited to a total of 150 timepieces, will age and change colour over time, gradually providing wearers with an individual and personal companion as time goes by.
“After 15 years of use, some S.A.R. Rescue-Timers clearly reflect the challenges that they have faced together with their captains. This idea was the inspiration behind the creation of our anniversary model, the S.A.R. Rescue-Timer Bronze, which also adapts to suit its wearer,” Mühle-Glashütte says.
“This is above all made possible by the watch’s bronze case, which forms a patina typical of bronze over time. This layer not only protects the material underneath, but also changes the case in an extremely individual manner depending on how the watch is worn by its owner, the way it is used and the environmental influences it faces. It results in a truly unique watch that is unlike any of the other special-edition models, which are limited to a total of just 150 timepieces,” the company adds.
