20 years ago, German watch brand Mühle Glashütte first introduced its ultra-robust S.A.R. Rescue-Timer (S.A.R.,for those unaware, stands for “Search and Rescue”). To celebrate its 20th anniversary in the German Maritime Search and Rescue Service (DGzRS), Mühle Glashütte is now launching a 20-piece limited edition (Ref. M1-41-09-KB) with a case made of gold (70 grams in total).
According to the manufacturer, more than 10,000 S.A.R. Rescue-Timers have been sold since 2002. The 42-mm watch features a 4-mm thick, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and is water resistant to 1,000 meters. The movement is the Swiss-made Sellita SW 200-1, adjusted in six positions, which has been upgraded with Mühle’s in-house rotor and its particularly shock-resistant woodpecker-neck fine adjustment. List price is €13,500.
