Pedal to the Metal: Union Glashütte Launches Belisar Chronograph Speedster Limited Edition

Union Glashütte is renowned for its successful retro style, which seamlessly combines expressive vintage designs, often inspired by the world of automobiles, with state-of-the-art Glashütte-originated calibers. The latest example is the Belisar Chronograph Speedster Limited Edition, an automatic chronograph with an “Electric Blue” dial inspired by the color scheme of a 1970s vintage car. It is housed in a 316L stainless steel case with a diameter of 44 mm and a water resistance of 10 bar.

As is typical for the limited editions of the Belisar collection the chronograph pushers are executed in mushroom-style and the dial is furnished with a tachymeter scale on its periphery for measuring distances. The intense blue color way serves as a proverbially cool background for the black hour and minute totalizers. The one at six o’clock integrates a date window. The hands are coated with Superluminova for readability at night. The central stop second hand has a white tip that beautifully complements the style of the moderately sized Arabic numerals.

The new Belisar Chronograph Speedster Limited Edition is equipped with the automatic movement UNG-27.S1, featuring an antimagnetic silicon hairspring and a power reserve of 65 hours. It comes with a rubber strap that can be optionally replaced with a metal bracelet. The limitation details are engraved on the screwed case back.

Pricing for the Union Glashütte Belisar Chronograph Speedster Limited Edition is marked at approximately $3,800 when converted to USD.
