Mühle-Glashütte Sea-Timer Black Motion
This robust sports watch is the ideal companion for anyone who loves to be outdoors and on the move.
The black, stainless steel case of Muehle’s Sea-Timer Black Motion makes a bold statement of individuality and practicality, delivering the balanced function/form ration synonymous with timepieces from Muehle-Glashuette.
The matt black TiC coating transforms the piece from a functional watch to a sophisticated timepiece for your wrist. A process known as PVD (physical vapour deposition) is used to coat the case of the watch in multiple layers of titanium carbide (TiC). This multi-layer technique provides multiple benefits such as a deep black colouration, highly resistant layer thicknesses and increased hardness of the underlying stainless steel case.
The case not only looks impressive but also boasts a pressure resistance of up to 30 bars (300 m) and is fitted with a 2.5mm thick double anti-glare sapphire crystal and a solid screw-in crown with extra side protection. The piece is finished with a tone-in-tone textile strap. The jet-black strap is made of water-resistant material, lined with a wearer-friendly layer of comfortable and non-irritant rubber. Because the Sea-Timer Black is a watch dedicated to sport, the length of the band can be adjusted via the pin buckle, meaning that it can even be worn over a wetsuit or a jacket sleeve.
The casual style and functionality of the piece is carried through to the dial and hands. The dark dial is intentionally uncluttered to enhance clarity and the only markings are for timekeeping. The outer edge of the dial displays a white, fine-minute graduation and highly luminous white hour indices. The only addition is a small date display at 4 o’clock. The blackened, nickel-plated hands are intentionally blocky to match the hour marks and provide adequate surface space for the super-luminova coating which further facilitates legibility at a glance.
Of course, if the time is easy to read, it also needs to be accurate and, in the case of the Sea-Timer Black Motion, this is guaranteed by a reliable SW 200-1 Muehle version movement. This impressive piece of equipment contains the company’s patented, shockproof, woodpecker neck regulation and is meticulously regulated in six different positions to ensure accuracy values of between 0 and a maximum of +8 seconds per day. One final point of raffination in the movement of the Sea-Timer BlackMotion is the inclusion of Muehle’s anniversary rotor, which commemorates the proud 150 year heritage of the company.
This watch delivers wins in the area of looks and performance – what more can you ask from a sports partner.
