As part of its 2019 releases – discussed in our round table on the Swatch Group’s Time to Move event – Glashütte Original announced a new diver’s watch line.
Yes, you read that correctly: a diver’s watch.
A diver’s watch comes as a real surprise, for the German manufacture has made its reputation on high-end, classically elegant timepieces that re-interpret the art of Saxon watchmaking, combining characteristic elements with state-of-the-art manufacturing expertise.
With all kinds of sought-after large and small complications, ranging from perpetual calendars to tourbillons and beautiful moon phases, and not to forget its signature Panorama Date as well as extraordinary examples of skeletonized timepieces, the brand’s top-notch luxury collection caters to upmarket-oriented connoisseurs and collectors who keep more to the elegant side of timekeeping.
Glashütte Original SeaQ
And now taking a closer look at the brand-new SeaQ, these connoisseurs might well consider adding a genuine diver’s watch to their collections.
The SeaQ is a loyal tribute to the original Spezimatic launched in 1969 as a robust timepiece designed for divers. It was manufactured by Glashütte Original’s East German predecessor, Glashütter Uhrenbetriebe; at that time Glashütte was located in the former German Democratic Republic.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
