It radiates retro charm, but is far from being old-fashioned: The new Belisar Chronograph from Union Glashütte effortlessly combines a nostalgic look with proven sportiness and, at the same time, shows the excellent flair possessed by this German watchmaking brand when it comes to modern details and high-quality finishes. The watch houses a mechanical chronograph movement with up to 60 hours of power reserve.
Carefully selected details, such as the rounded cream dial and the train-track minute scale, whose arrangement can also be found on the totalisers, ensure that this timepiece has an exquisite vintage look, perfectly rounded off by the brown leather strap with contrasting cream-coloured stitching. The sporty effect comes from the red colour of the tachymeter scale, the chronograph hand and the tip of the chronograph-seconds hand. This is complemented by a gently curving dial that is beautifully accentuated by nickel-plated numbers and elegant applied indices.
Look again and you discover even more details that represent the modern side of the Belisar Chronograph: The black-lacquered crown is embellished with a classic “U” for Union Glashütte, and the black-lacquered chronograph push-buttons feature on/off and reset icons. These original technical symbols go well with the ultra-modern chronograph movement inside the timepiece, which has up to 60 hours of power reserve.
The UNG-27.01 movement, manufactured in Glashütte, can be viewed through the screw-down sapphire crystal case-back. The rotor is finished with the skeletonised brand lettering and the Glashütte stripes. The timepiece is water-resistant up to a pressure of 10 bar (100 metres). In addition to the version with a cream dial for €2370.00/CHF 2470.00*, a version with a black dial is also available and can also come with a black leather strap for €2370.00/CHF 2470.00* or with a stainless steel bracelet for €2490.00/CHF 2590.00*.
