JOHANNES DÜRRSTEIN EDITION CHRONOGRAPH
STAINLESS STEEL WITH LEATHER STRAP
AVAILABLE END OF NOVEMBER
DEDICATED TO TRADITION
This elegant edition celebrates the legacy of over 125 years of German art of watchmaking. Its design takes elements from the history of Union Glashütte and carries them forward into the 21st century, with the shape of the satin-finished, polished 42 mm stainless steel case reminding you of old pocket watches. 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 black calfskin leather strap, which is securely held by a double fold fastener made of stainless steel.
Classic elegance is the guiding principle of all 1893 Johannes Dürrstein models. This Chronograph is lovingly interspersed with reminiscences to historical timepieces. Connoisseurs of fine watches will recognise them without difficulty – such as the dial with white enamel finish, fine Arabic numerals and blued hands, or the minutes printed in red. A central stop second, a 30-minute counter at 3 o'clock and a 12-hour counter at 6 o'clock, into which a date window is also set, allow short time frames to be measured – a discreet reference to the demands of today.

MANUAL WINDING MOVEMENT UNG-59.S1
The UNG-59.S1 hand-wound calibre with 60 hours' power reserve, developed specifically for this watch, offers extensive insights into the work of the Chronograph and gives the viewer a clear sight of the complex switch operations. The fine finishing of all components that come from Glashütte's own workshops, allows typical elements of its craftsmanship like the refined Glashütte stripe finish and perlage by hand. The silicon spring is in turn an achievement of contemporary watchmaking. Thanks to the latest silicon technology, it is resistant to magnetic fields, which can have a lasting effect on the rate precision of mechanical watches.
