S.A.R. Rescue Timer

When developing our watches we don’t rely solely on our own know-how, but also allow ourselves to be influenced by others as well. Indeed, we even welcome it. The function and design of the S.A.R. Rescue-Timer, for example, were to a large extent determined by the captains in the German Maritime Search and Rescue Service. These captains control the rescue cruisers answering the call of duty to save sailors in distress in all kinds of weather.

This practical orientation resulted in an exceptionally robust watch able to meet any challenge. Apart from its ability to resist enormous water pressure, the 4 mm thick sapphire crystal particularly deserves special mention. In combination with the special shockproof automatic movement, this makes the S.A.R. Rescue-Timer an extremely dependable timepiece. The steel case with the crown at 4 o’clock, rounded for safety reasons, is also functional – after all, we don’t want any seaman to get injured while being pulled out of the water or the lifeboat.

Since it was first developed, the S.A.R. Rescue-Timer has been in long-term operation on the 56 rescue cruisers of the German Maritime Search and Rescue Service, with which we still constantly exchange ideas and experience.
