Union Glashütte introduces an enticing update to its Noramis line as the year comes to a close. Expanding upon the brand’s first water sports watch unveiled in 2021, the German watchmaker now offers three chronographs with captivating color variations: blue, anthracite, and turquoise. With a water resistance of up to 20 bar, the Noramis Chronograph Sports models boast retro-inspired features such as mushroom pushers, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with a highly domed profile, and unidirectional rotating ceramic bezels.
Adhering to the popular Bicompax style, the chronograph subdials are positioned at 3 and 9 o’clock. The gradient dials seamlessly transition from lighter hues in the center to darker tones at the periphery, mirroring the aesthetic of the three-hand versions.

Polished and satin-finished triangular hands, along with Superluminova-coated main hands, chronograph tips, and hour markers, enhance readability underwater or in low-light conditions. Consistent with the Noramis collection, the date display is seamlessly integrated into the small seconds totalizer at nine o’clock.
The 43mm case, adorned with a ceramic bezel, houses the self-winding caliber UNG-27.S2. The movement is equipped with an anti-magnetic silicon balance spring and boasts an impressive power reserve exceeding 65 hours. Its details can be admired through showcased through the sapphire crystal case back.
