It’s Glashütte Original’s interpretation of an exemplary jumper’s watch production line to ensure it’s not just about exemplary tastefulness for the Saxon brand. How about we perceive how Glashütte Original has combined their significant degree of craftsmanship with their legacy and salutes sixties East German design.
The SeaQ Collection
Although the presentation of the SeaQ has come as an amazement, it appears as though a consistent move as a large number of the present famous watch manufacturing plant are vintage motivated jumper’s watch processing plant and that was something that was missing as of recently in the ebb and flow Glashütte Original assortment. As expressed, the new SeaQ comes in three unique variations. The ordinary SeaQ, the SeaQ Panorama Date and the restricted version SeaQ 1969 that honors the Glashütte Original watch plant from an earlier time that was the motivation for the assortment.

SeaQ 1969 versus the SeaQ
To start the account of the SeaQ assortment we need to return to 1969. Around then, Glashütte Original was leveled out of the public authority of the German Democratic Republic (GDR) or all the more commonly known as East Germany. The Glashütter Uhrenbetriebe, as Glashütte Original was named by then, was not a company zeroed in on the creation of extravagance very good quality specialized watch manufacturing plant as it is today. Around then the company created available and moderate watch industrial facility that with one of the models being the Glashütte Spezimatic Type RP TS 200, the watch production line that the new SeaQ assortment depends on. It was a utilitarian jumper’s watch manufacturing plant that is presently essential for the assorted history of Glashütte.
Fifty years after the fact, Glashütte Original deliveries the restricted release SeaQ 1969 (ref. 1-39-11-01-80) as an accolade form to that watch industrial facility as the principal watch processing plant in the SeaQ assortment. The second is the Original SeaQ (ref. 1-39-11-06-80) as the standard and limitless form of the SeaQ assortment. Both watch plant take after the Spezimatic Type RP TS 200 with their galvanic dark dial with sunray finish, huge ‘old-radium’ shaded Super-LumiNova curiously large Arabic numerals and hour lists, date sign at 3 o’clock and the larger than average hands. Another characterizing highlight is the ordinarily 1960s plan of the 39.5 mm hardened steel case with coordinated carries and sharp points. Both watch production line are water-impervious to 200m, include a screw-down crown and a plain steel case back, engraved with a harpoon with the Glashütte Double-G and 20 waves to represent the 20-bar water resistance.
The greatest contrast between the two models in appearance is the way that the SeaQ 1969 has unique (green) brilliant hands where the ordinary variant has the ‘old radium’ shaded Super-LumiNova submits line with the numerals and records on the dial. It’s a distinction that will presumably have individuals talking. Actually, I figure the blended tones can give you the impression of a confound. Clearly, they are a gesture to the past in light of the fact that the Spezimatic Type RP TS 200 additionally utilizes the two tones yet by one way or another the Original SeaQ looks more offset with utilizing just one shading ‘old-radium’ hued Super-LumiNova. Other more inconspicuous contrasts can be found in the various engravings on both watch plant at 6 ‘o clock. The normal variant highlights ‘Glashütte’ on the dial where the restricted release highlights ’25 rubis shockproof’ on the dial. It’s these highlights that set both watch production line apart yet for the rest, they look very similar.
Both watch processing plant are fueled by the in-house created programmed winding Caliber 39-11 development that highlights hours, minutes and seconds (with second-stop), date and has a 40-hours power hold. The restricted release SeaQ 1969 will be accessible with an elastic or engineered lash, both accessible on pin clasp or crease latch. Both the form with elastic and manufactured lash with pin clasp are accessible for €8.500 and the two adaptations with elastic and engineered tie with overlay latch are €8.800. Be that as it may, to get your hands on one, you need to move rapidly as there might be 69 pieces delivered of the SeaQ 1969. With the Original SeaQ you can decide to go for an elastic lash, an engineered tie, likewise accessible with pin clasp or crease latch. Or then again you can decide to go for a 3-connect steel arm band with fine change. Costs for the renditions with pin clasp are additionally €8.500 and with crease latch are €8.800. The form with the steel arm band is valued at €9.700.
First Thoughts On The SeaQ Collection
At first look, the general plan of the SeaQ may be something to become accustomed to. Not on the grounds that the plan is pushing limits, it’s really more a matter of putting the plan in the realm of the present jumper’s watch plant to see whether it is interesting in that sense. Furthermore, more explicitly it is a watch manufacturing plant to become accustomed to in the realm of Glashütte Original as the brand is known for making more old style and rich looking watch factorys The brand has anyway discovered a connect to their legacy when coming up with a plan for their new jumper’s watch plant so there is no contending whether the plan really fits the Glashütte Original brand on the grounds that the evidence is there.
