Mühle Glashütte is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its S.A.R. Rescue-Timer, a nautical timepiece used aboard German maritime search and rescue vessels in the Baltic and North seas.
To mark the anniversary Mühle Glashütte has launched a special edition model, the S.A.R. Anniversary-Timer limited to 250 models of two versions.
The German Maritime Search and Rescue Service’s fleet (DGzRS) were closely involved in development of the S.A.R. Rescue-Timer’s design and function. The anniversary models include sapphire crystal glass four millimeters thick, watertightness to a depth of 1,000m and a shockproof automatic movement with Mühle-Glashütte’s own regulation that is capable of withstanding tremendous water pressure and even strong shocks.
The timepieces also has a steel case with rounded edges, rubber bezel and the special position of the crown at 4 o’clock mean that the watch cannot injure a wearer who is being pulled out of the water.
It will be available in two versions – steel and DLC coated – and both have a reflective black ceramic bezel.
The black DLC version features prominent red indices and hands, whereas the silver version has white hands and hour markers.
