Mühle rescue watch celebrates its anniversary

The S.A.R. Rescue-Timer in 18k yellow gold

Go for Gold: Never before has a wristwatch more deservedly fulfilled this requirement than the S.A.R. Rescue-Timer. Because this year the robust watch celebrates its 20th anniversary at the German Maritime Search and Rescue Service (DGzRS). In February 2002 the first S.A.R. Rescue-Timer were consigned to the foremen of the DGzRS. Since then, the watch had to prove itself in the tough everyday life of the sea rescuers on the North Sea and Baltic Sea.

Since 2002, over 10,000 S.A.R. Rescue-Timer found their fans. This is not surprising in view of the unique design and the high suitability for everyday use of the proven Mühle watch. Because the the S.A.R. Rescue-Timer is equiped with a four-millimeter-thick, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, which allows an unclouded view of the extremely legible dial at all times. In addition, there is an SW 200-1, the Mühle version, which is elaborately adjusted in six positions, with the in-house rotor and the particularly shock-proof woodpecker neck fine adjustment. And last but not least, a 42 millimeter case that can withstand an enormous water pressure of up to 100 bar. The latter is made from an exciting mix of materials in the anniversary edition, which is limited to 20 pieces.

The S.A.R. Rescue-Timer GOLD in detail

The middle part of the case of the S.A.R. Rescue-Timer GOLD is made of 18-carat yellow gold and contains a very high fine gold content of 70 grams in total. The golden surfaces of the middle part are finely brushed, which perfectly underlines the noble character of the exclusive anniversary edition.

The noble appearance of the case is continued in gold-plated hands on the matt black dial. These are also made in yellow gold, so they have a high contrast to the dial and thus ensure very good readability. They trace their path over indices and orientation triangles, which, unlike the series watch, are coated with pure white luminous material.

The dial is complemented by a golden rehaut and the well-known rubber bezel of the S.A.R. Rescue-Timer. Its basis is a stainless steel core, which is covered with black, shock-absorbing natural rubber.

The other components of the case are designed to match: not only is the screwed stainless steel case back coated in black PVD, but also the screw-down crown and the four screws on the strap bars. They hold the rubber strap specially made for Mühle-Glashütte securely on the S.A.R. Rescue-Timer GOLD. The bracelet is closed with a black stainless steel folding clasp including an extension. It is provided with a durable diamond-like carbon coating (DLC), which makes the clasp less sensitive to wear and tear, for example when it is placed on the table.

About the DGzRS

The German Maritime Search and Rescue Service (DGzRS) is responsible for the maritime search and rescue service in the German areas of the North Sea and Baltic Sea. In order to fulfill its tasks, it keeps around 60 sea rescue cruisers and boats ready for action at 55 stations between Borkum in the west and Usedom in the east – around the clock, in all weathers. 180 permanent employees and around 800 voluntary sea rescuers carry out around 2,000 missions every year. The entire independent and self-responsible work of the sea rescuers is financed exclusively by voluntary donations, without claiming tax money. Since the DGzRS was founded in 1865, its crews have rescued more than 86,000 people from distress at sea or from imminent danger. The Federal President is the patron of the rescue work.
