Seebataillon GMT

For the marine protection forces of the future German Navy Sea Battalion we have developed a special tactical watch with a useful GMT function. This new model recognises the frequent deployments of the Sea Battalion outside of Germany as it works to protect the soldiers, ships and premises of the German Navy in harbours and on the high seas. The organisation is also responsible for protecting merchant ships against pirates and carrying out embargo checks. In order to carry out these activities, the Sea Battalion boasts excellently trained units including boarding teams and marksmen.

In order to provide its loyal service to soldiers both in Germany and on the coast of Africa or in the Middle East, this watch not only has to be reliable, self-sufficient and precise, but also particularly easy to read. Its face therefore features double indices at the 3, 6 and 9 o‘clock positions and a split triangular marking at the 12 o’clock position. This not only enables the best possible use of a luminous material coating, but also precisely defines the position of the hand at the full minute mark. The reduced countdown bezel also contributes towards the watch‘s excellent readability, as does its skeletonised GMT hand, which does not obscure the minute graduation.

One of this watch’s special features is its titanium case. The watch’s light weight and crown positioned at the 4 o‘clock mark means that it neither limits the mobility of its wearer’s hand nor adds too much weight to the other, often extremely extensive, equipment carried by its users.
