One of the best luxury dive watches of recent years, the Glashutte Original SeaQ, is set to receive an expansion to its line-up of phenomenal timepieces. In 2019, Glashutte Original launched its line of luxury divers under the banner of its “Spezialist” collection, these watches took heavy inspiration from the brands very first dive watch offerings, launched in 1969.
Two new models are set to debut in September of 2020, both in stainless steel, both with blue dials, but both worlds apart in extravagance.
The brand will release a blue sunburst dial variant of the SeaQ, complete with a unidirectional bezel which features a deep blue ceramic inlay, taking up the blue of the lustrous dial. The bezel will feature full minute click markers and supa-luminova triangle at 12 O’clock.
The second watch set for release will feature the same, delicate sunburst blue dial and applied indices as its counterpart. However, this watch will take luxurious, extravagant dive watches to new heights. Glashutte Original are replacing the ceramic bezel inlay, and in its stead setting 47 brilliant cut diamonds and a single blue sapphire, ensuring a truly dazzling appearance.
Of course, due to the diamonds and sapphire set into the rotating bezel, this watch won’t meet DIN and ISO dive watch standards like the other, but we are sure that can be forgiven with just how incredible this watch looks.
Both of the new timepieces will feature solid case backs, engraved with a wave pattern and trident and then screwed into position and aligned. Beneath the solid case back, Glashutte Original power the pieces using the manufacture calibre 39-11 automatic movement. As always the movement is finished to very high standards, it will also provide hacking, hand winding and a rated power reserve of 40 hours.
Both watches will be cased at 40mm in diameter and available on a full stainless-steel bracelet and blue nylon straps. The non-diamond variation will also be available of a black rubber strap with relief pattern.
