Updated with a modern automatic movement and beautiful colorway, the SeaQ is capable, stylish, and built to keep up with the adventurous lifestyle.
The Glashütte SeaQ takes style cues from the Spezimatic Typ RP TS 200, the company’s first diving watch. The look and polished surface of the SeaQ case are based on details found on the Spezimatic from the late 1960s.

This green is mirrored on the dial, which also features bold numerals, a date window at 3 o’clock, and Super-LumiNova white coating on the hands and indexes for excellent clarity in all conditions. True to its sporting heritage, the watch can be paired with gray nylon or black rubber straps, giving it a relaxed look; You can also outfit it with a stainless steel bracelet if you want to dress it up a bit.
Whatever you wear, SeaQ is built to take a beating: it’s built to meet exacting requirements ISO 6425 . Standard. Diving watches must have a rotating bezel and accurate, legible markings, and pass a full range of tests to ensure they will continue to operate accurately even when submerged in deep water, subjected to magnetic fields, and struck with a hammer. The tests also ensure the straps don’t rip or warp when pulled, so if you’re stuck with something (like an underwater rock, for example), it won’t fly off your wrist and sink. No diver wants to worry about losing his watch while swimming a hundred feet below the surface. These tests ensure that the watch is very sturdy for everyday wear as well.
The SeaQ does it all with an automatic movement and a 40-hour power reserve, rated for water resistance to 669 feet. It’s a true gadget watch, but no matter what you’re doing, it’ll look great on your wrist. What more could you ask for?
