As expressed, the new SeaQ comes in three unique variations. The customary SeaQ, the SeaQ Panorama Date and the restricted version SeaQ 1969 that gives recognition to the Glashütte Original watch from an earlier time that was the motivation for the assortment.

SeaQ 1969 versus the SeaQ
To start the tale of the SeaQ assortment we need to return to 1969. Around then, Glashütte Original was leveled out of the public authority of the German Democratic Republic (GDR) or all the more commonly known as East Germany. The Glashütter Uhrenbetriebe, as Glashütte Original was named by then, was not a company zeroed in on the creation of extravagance top of the line specialized looks as it is today. Around then the company created open and moderate watches that with one of the models being the Glashütte Spezimatic Type RP TS 200, the watch that the new SeaQ assortment depends on. It was a practical jumper’s watch that is currently important for the different history of Glashütte.
Fifty years after the fact, Glashütte Original deliveries the restricted version SeaQ 1969 (ref. 1-39-11-01-80) as an accolade form to that watch as the primary watch in the SeaQ assortment. The second is the Original SeaQ (ref. 1-39-11-06-80) as the ordinary and limitless adaptation of the SeaQ assortment. The two watches take after the Spezimatic Type RP TS 200 with their galvanic dark dial with sunray finish, huge ‘old-radium’ shaded Super-LumiNova larger than average Arabic numerals and hour records, date sign at 3 o’clock and the larger than average hands. Another characterizing highlight is the ordinarily 1960s plan of the 39.5 mm treated steel case with incorporated drags and sharp points. The two watches are water-impervious to 200m, include a screw-down crown and a plain steel case back, engraved with a spear with the Glashütte Double-G and 20 waves to represent the 20-bar water resistance.
The greatest distinction between the two models in appearance is the way that the SeaQ 1969 has extraordinary (green) glowing hands where the customary rendition has the ‘old radium’ shaded Super-LumiNova delivers line with the numerals and files on the dial. It’s a distinction that will presumably have individuals talking. By and by, I figure the blended tones can give you the impression of a confuse. Clearly, they are a gesture to the past in light of the fact that the Spezimatic Type RP TS 200 likewise utilizes the two tones yet by one way or another the Original SeaQ looks more offset with utilizing just one shading ‘old-radium’ hued Super-LumiNova. Other more unpretentious contrasts can be found in the various engravings on the two watches at 6 ‘o clock. The normal rendition highlights ‘Glashütte’ on the dial where the restricted version highlights ’25 rubis shockproof’ on the dial. It’s these highlights that set the two watches apart however for the rest, they look very similar.
Both watches are controlled by the in-house created programmed winding Caliber 39-11 development that highlights hours, minutes and seconds (with second-stop), date and has a 40-hours power hold.

However, to get your hands on one, you need to move rapidly as there might be 69 pieces delivered of the SeaQ 1969.

Or on the other hand you can decide to go for a 3-interface steel arm band with fine change. Costs for the variants with pin clasp are likewise €8.500 and with crease latch are €8.800. The variant with the steel wristband is evaluated at €9.700.
