A globetrotter visits Glashütte Original

Ryan is forever heading off to far-away places, always in search of cultural treasures and breathtaking natural beauty. He found all of that during one of his most recent adventures. At the beginning of September 2021, he visited Glashütte Original at its home in Saxony. The Canadian globetrotter was accompanied by a camera team and by his Senator Cosmopolite. This exceptional timepiece enables the wearer to check the time – day or night, Standard or Daylight Saving time – in any of the 35 time zones currently in use.

Impressive craft skills and a long history

When visiting the manufactory in Glashütte, Ryan learned all about the watchmaker’s different models, its long, eventful history and impressive craft skills. After all, what at first seems impossible lends wings to their reach for the greatest achievements – just like Ryan.

Adventurers together: Ryan and the SeaQ

The Canadian adventurer lost no time in putting one of the company’s latest creations to the test. He picked up one of the stylish and robust SeaQ models in elegant reed green and took it with him on a challenging hike in nearby “Saxon Switzerland”, a paradise for lovers of the outdoors.

Sophisticated, robust and certified

The SeaQ family features sophisticated and robust timepieces that are certified DIN 8306 and ISO 6425 diver’s watches, combining the finest in precision mechanics with a genuine sporting spirit. It’s no surprise that a SeaQ will also accompany Ryan on his future travels.
