The sapphire crystal case-back of the Chronograph gives you a view of the tireless work of the hand-wound calibre. The watch is presented on a brown calfskin leather strap, which is securely held by a pin buckle made of rose gold. This exclusive special model is limited to 127 pieces around the world. It is presented in a collector's case that offers space for a total of three models.

Description

The first Union timepieces were produced in Glashütte in 1893. Today, with a collection named after this significant year, the brand is reinterpreting elements from its own history. The shape of the case is inspired by historical pocket watches, while numerous other details – such as the blued hands, lacquered dials and "railway track" chapter rings – evoke memories of the great classics.

Saphir

Saphir

The sapphire used by Union Glashütte for its crystals is a white, synthetic sapphire. Thanks to its hardness rating of 9, this crystal can only be scratched by very hard diamond-like substances. Union Glashütte watches only use double-sided anti-reflective sapphire crystals. As there are no reflections on the crystal, the full splendour of the dial is revealed.

silicon balance spring

silicon balance spring

UNION GLASHÜTTE uses Silicon, a chemical element of the family of metalloids, in the manufacture of balance springs. By use of Silicon, our watches are insensitive to magnetic fields, temperature fluctuations and shocks. They are very stable in shape and resistant to oxidation. The silicon spiral guarantees higher power stability in our mechanical movements - so your watch runs precisely anytime, anywhere. You can recognize the use of the silicon spiral in your UNION GLASHÜTTE watch by the Si-poster that our watchmakers set and align by hand.
Gold

Gold

Refined gold is very soft and is the most ductile of all metals. Soft, refined gold is a material that is ill-suited for use in jewellery, watches, coins, etc., and is therefore alloyed with other metals to alter its hardness, strength and colour, as well as to improve polishing results and bring down the price. For its cases, crowns and buckles, Union Glashütte only uses gold alloys with a copper content and with 750 parts per thousand of pure gold (18 carat). This produces a rose gold tone.
