From their website - http://www.muehle-glashuette.de/en/wristwatches/nautical-wristwatches/sar-flieger-chronograph.html

The rescue pilots from the German Navy were looking for a chronograph which would enable calculation of flight speeds, and at the same time be able to withstand the harshest of operating conditions. As a result, the S.A.R. Flieger-Chronograph (S.A.R pilots' chronograph) was born.

For easy differentiation between the time displays, the chronograph functions are marked in orange. This typical SAR signal color is also used to highlight the important 10-second scale, which facilitates short-time measurements to extrapolate speeds.

We have positioned the crown and pusher on the left, where they do not restrict the free movement of the wearer's hand. This also enabled us to place the start pusher at 8 o'clock, where it is much easier to operate with the thumb.

Movement MU 9408, automatic with woodpecker neck regulation, Glashütte three-quarter plate and characteristic surface finishes. Stop-second. Fast date correction. 48-hr power reserve.
Case Stainless steel with bidirectional bezel. 2.5 mm thick, domed and anti-glare sapphire crystal. Transparent case back. Screw-in crown. Water-resistant to 10 bars.
Dimensions Ø 44.0 mm; H 16.2 mm.
Strap Rubber strap or stainless steel strap with extension, stainless steel safety clasp. Screwed strap attachment bridges.
Dial Super LumiNova hands and indices. Face colour Black
