This masterpiece draws inspiration from the racing car icons of the 1960s, boasting a vibrant Salzburg red hue complemented by three white racing stripes. The bold color scheme pays homage to an era of speed and sophistication.
This limited edition model, a variant of the Viro chronograph, distinguishes itself with its striking design and unerring focus on functionality. The dial’s captivating red tone is accentuated by nickel-black hands adorned with a generous coating of Super-LumiNova®, ensuring optimal readability in any lighting condition. Emphasizing the essence of timekeeping, the design deliberately forgoes excessive numerals and embellishments.
At its core lies the UNG-14.01 movement, a testament to precision and performance with a remarkable power reserve of up to 60 hours. The chronograph function, featuring a 60-second, 30-minute, and 12-hour counter, embodies the watch’s racing spirit. The leather strap, crafted in an open-cut racing style, completes the timepiece’s dynamic character. For those preferring a more traditional approach, an option for a metal strap provides versatility.
The Viro models by Union Glashütte epitomize a fusion of minimalist elegance and definitive style. Constructed exclusively in stainless steel, these timepieces feature striking indices, ensuring effortless legibility.
The craftsmanship of Union Glashütte shines through in the meticulous choice of materials. Stainless steel 316L, renowned for its anti-corrosion properties, forms the cases, bracelets, and double-fold fasteners of the watches. Sapphire crystals, rated at a hardness of 9, adorn the timepieces, providing unparalleled scratch resistance and clarity with double-sided anti-reflective coatings.
The brand’s dedication to quality extends to its use of premium leather materials, including calfskin, cowhide, cordovan, or goatskin for the watch straps.
Moreover, Union Glashütte emphasizes the water resistance of its timepieces, with men’s watches rated up to 10 bar (100 meters) and ladies’ watches up to 5 bar (50 meters). Gold watches boast a water resistance of up to 3 bar (30 meters).
