Some men absolutely scoff at the idea of a traditional luxury watch. Gold, precious metals, "formal" appearance? To them, "no thanks" is the most obvious response. So what timepieces tend to suit their personality and tastes? A utility focused German watch like this that doesn't know the meaning of the term "fashion." By Muhle Glashutte
, this is the newer SAR Pilot Chronograph. An updated, alternative version of the SAR (for the German Search & Rescue team). With a serious attitude, the brand shows off highly durable materials in a case that is simple to read, and unique to use as a chronograph (thanks to the large, left mounted, trigger style pusher.
In a 44mm wide watch, the watch is in steel with satin finishing and a rubber strap. The dial is beyond "instrumental". offering a highly legibility and polarizing design. Inside the watch is a modified Swiss ET Valjoux 7750 with a Muhle Glasshute modified design to include one of their own bridges. The movement is flitted around, with the pushers on the left side of the case. A very cool timepiece for the activity lover in us all. Priced under $4000 I believe.
