Glashütte Original debuted its diver’s watch in 1969, it was called the Spezimatic Typ RP TS 200. Its latest variation in the already existing SeqQ diver’s range is inspired by the very same design and includes upgrades to its functionality. Glashütte Original’s SeaQ now comes in a Rich Reed Green lacquered dial.
The dial really takes the centre stage and has the rich reed-green colour with silver applied numerals and matching date aperture at three o’clock. The matching date aperture design integrates seamlessly into the dial and does not seem like an afterthought or a design feature that was overlooked. The hands, numerals, and indexes are coated with generous amount of Super-LumiNova that ensures optimum legibility in difficult lighting. The SeaQ has ceramic bezel which rotates counterclockwise and has green ceramic inlay that blends perfectly with its dial. The bezel has 120 clicks and only the 12 o’ clock marker has lume. It has a screw-down crown with the Glashütte Original’s classic double “G” moniker.
The SeaQ Reed-Green is German engineered and you can expect the watch to comply with international quality standards for a diver’s watch. This makes it a very safe diver’s watch. The watch is rigorously tested and meets DIN 8306 and ISO 6425 standards for a diver’s watch i.e., legibility under water, both shock and water resistance, variations in pressure, and many other criteria’s.
The SeaQ is water resistant to 20 bar (200 meters) and has Glashütte Original’s in house 39-11 automatic manufactory movement with 40 hours of power reserve and oscillating at 4Hz/28,800vph. According to Glashütte it delivers precision, reliability, and resistance. The movement is exquisitely finished with Glashütte strip finish, heavy skeletonised rotor, bevelled edges, and polished steel parts. However, the watch does not come with a open case back design which is mainly because the depths it has to withstand.
The SeaQ Reed Green is perfectly suited for active outdoor days and will stand out with its distinctive sporty style. Its enduring quality will ensure safety at great depths underwater and will be perfectly at home on land as well. Choice of different straps makes it a simple matter to adapt the watch to the wearer’s individual style. Whether the occasion is a casual picnic with friends or an elegant evening at an exclusive restaurant – the SeaQ is always the right choice. It comes with stainless steel bracelet, rubber strap and synthetic grey strap.
