The S.A.R. Rescue-Timer has now been accompanying the maritime rescue workers of the German Maritime Search and Rescue Service (DGzRS) on their missions since February 2002. One of its jobs is to allow clear time readings during night-time rescue missions. The lighting on sea rescue cruisers is often turned down to an absolute minimum to allow the best possible visibility at sea, but this is no problem at all for the S.A.R. Rescue-Timer. With its large hands and indices fully coated in Super LumiNova, the S.A.R. Rescue-Timer shines in the night and allows its wearer to keep a precise record of timings for mission reports, even in pitch-black conditions.
In honour of the outstanding night-time readability of this service watch, we are proud to introduce a brand-new model focusing on this value: the S.A.R. Rescue-Timer LUMEN. The face of this new watch is completely covered in Super LumiNova and provides a perfect backdrop to its skeleton hands with a black coating. The distinctive hands form a strong contrast to the cream-coloured background and also enable wearers to clearly view the date display in the 4 o’clock position. Thus the S.A.R. Rescue-Timer LUMEN takes readability at night to a whole new level.
To give wearers a clear view of this radiant face at all times, we have fitted the new S.A.R. Rescue-Timer LUMEN with an impressive 4mm-thick scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. These high quality standards continue throughout the solid stainless steel case. In addition to its rubber bezel, the case features a screwed-down stainless steel back and a screw-in crown. This enables it to withstand powerful water pressure of up to 100 bars – perfect for a seafaring timepiece.
That said, this watch won’t be swept overboard thanks to Mühle’s popular rubber or stainless strap, which keeps the 42mm case firmly on its wearer’s wrist. The LUMEN model also offers a new textile strap as a third strap option. This was developed especially for the S.A.R. Rescue-Timer LUMEN and complements the colour scheme of the watch’s unique face.
