Muhle Glashutte S.A.R Rescue-Timer Watch Review
Wednesday - 29 July 2015
The German Maritime Search and Rescue Association (DGzRS) celebrates an almighty birthday this year. The life saving organisation is 2 months into it’s 150th year since conception. An establishment that inspired Muhle Glashutte to design the S.A.R Rescue-Timer.
To mark the birth of the DGzRS established in the German city of Kiel on May 29th,1865 let’s explore the timepiece that honours the service that has reached a huge milestone in their profession. In 2002, the S.A.R Rescue Timers were presented to the leading rescuers of the DGzRS after much consideration of how the watch would survive the extreme conditions at sea. The partnership has blossomed since due to the superb performance of the functional masterpiece that has continually proved vital on missions. To celebrate the special birthday, Muhle Glashutte are gifting 150 watches to the sea rescuers; a very appropriate present to congratulate the association for reaching this momentous occasion.
The functions of the S.A.R Rescue Timer ensure that the timepiece endures harsh conditions and is a useful tool. The captains in the German Maritime Search and Rescue Service had a crucial role in developing the design to accommodate their needs. The result formed a robust structure that can resist enormous water pressure with the help of the 4 mm thick anti-glare sapphire crystal glass. The special shockproof automatic movement ensures that the timepiece is extremely reliable and a trusty companion in extreme challenges. The triangular and baton indices are coated with SuperLumiNova for vision on night-time rescues.
