Union Glashütte is expanding its line of water sports watches that was first introduced last year. The newest addition is a Normais Date Sport with an amber-yellow dial featuring the same ombre effect as is typical for the collection. The dial is the most pigmented in the center while the color fades to a rich black color towards the outer edge. Also characteristic of the watch is the box crystal which and textured rubber strap which have a vintage look.
Thanks to the screw-down crown and screw-down sapphire crystal case back, the 42-mm case made of 316L steel is pressure-resistant to 20 bar. Not to be missed is the unidirectionally rotating bezel with a ceramic ring. The reference point on it is coated with Superluminova, as are the indices and hands.
Powering the hands is the automatic caliber UNG-07.S1 with a silicon hairspring and a power reserve of approximately 60 hours.
The new Union Glashütte Noramis Date Sport retails for approximately $2,180 when converted to USD.

Indeed a very nice watch from a quality producer. I once visited this beautiful area and also the other glasshüte watchmakers. Lately it starts to become difficult to choose. So many options from Bulova, Baltic, Tornek, Rado etc. I would be interested in a caliber picture.
Shades of Oris Aquis Big Day/Date! The hands and bezel seem interchangeable. They could be siblings! I like the Ombre dial in amber.
