Mühle-Glashütte has developed the Seebataillon GMT, created in cooperation with the soldiers of the new unit of the German Navy, the Seebataillon (Marine Battalion).
The brand chose to work with the Germany navy after soldiers had told them that they were looking for a watch tailored specifically to their operational requirements, especially as time and timekeeping are key in planning and carrying out missions. They have therefore jointly developed the Seebattailon GMT, which they hope is a timepiece that is solid and shockproof enough for any mission.
The navy’s influence on the model can be seen in a number of areas. The self-winding automatic mechanism is suited to the various deployment zones and operational conditions in which the Seebataillon will be serving, and the second time zone display is important for operations abroad. The second zone hand is split so the minute indicators are not obscured and the readability of the wearer’s local time zone is not impaired.
The titanium housing of the Seebataillon GMT is hardwearing and lightweight, which it’s hoped will ensure a high degree of comfort and robustness, regardless of the elements.
Finally, the dark blue dial and gold GMT display evokes the colours of the soldiers’ berets and thus further cements the connection with the Marine Battalion itself.
The Seebataillon GMT operates with an ETA 2893-2 automatic movement and is priced at £2145.00
