Mühle-Glashütte S.A.R. Anniversary-Timer Watch Review
Monday - 01 October 2012
Launched in 2002, the Mühle-Glashütte S.A.R. Rescue-Timer has supported German search and rescue crews for the last decade. Mühle worked in collaboration with the captains of the German Maritime Search and Rescue Service's fleet to create a watch that perfectly met the needs of their crews, incorporating a 4 mm-thick sapphire crystal, shock-proof automatic movement, and water tightness to a depth of 1,000 metres. The case was also designed with rounded edges, a rubber bezel and a specially positioned crown at 4 o'clock to ensure that the watch would not injure the wearer if they were pulled out of the water.
To celebrate 10 years of the S.A.R. Rescue-Timer, Mühle-Glashütte has now released the limited edition S.A.R. Anniversary-Timer.
The special timepiece has a 44 mm case, and is available in two versions: stainless steel, or stainless steel with a black, shock-proof DLC coating.
The Mühle-Glashütte S.A.R. Anniversary-Timer has a reflective black ceramic bezel, and luminous hands and indices for optimum readability. It features Mühle's shock-proof woodpecker-neck regulation, and provides the same 1,000-metre water resistance as the Rescue-Timer upon which it was modelled. The watch has a 2.5 mm thick, domed and anti-glare sapphire crystal, and transparent case back. It comes with a rubber strap with a stainless steel safety extension.
The brand says: "The S.A.R. Anniversary-Timer embodies the virtues for which the S.A.R Rescue-Timer is notable: absolute robustness, exceptional precision, and unrivalled readability."
