Mühle-Glashütte – Precise measurement since 1869
Nautische Instrumente Mühle-Glashütte is now the only watch manufacturer in the German town of Glashütte that is still owned by a long-established local family. The family company was founded by Robert Mühle in 1869. He initially produced highly precise measuring instruments for the watch manufacturers in Glashütte and then went on to also make speedometers and rev counters. The company’s current focus emerged under the management of the fourth generation of the Mühle family: the production of high-quality wristwatches, marine time systems and other nautical instruments.
Terrasport I Chronograph
Time flies with the Terrasport model, not only because it measures time like a classic pilots‘ watch but also because it takes us back in time to the very beginning of wristwatch production in the German town of Glashütte. This small town has been synonymous with high-quality time measuring instruments since as early as 1845. In the first century of watchmaking in Glashütte, however, luxurious pocket watches were the main instruments produced. It wasn‘t until the end of the 1930s that wristwatches became popular on a large scale in the form of precise and easy-to-read pilots‘ watches.
At the height of their development, these time measuring instruments were precisely designed to meet their intended purpose of use. Pilots were equipped with one of a variety of chronograph models, a large observation watch was available for navigation officers and other crew members wore smaller three-hand watches. With its typical Mühle straightforwardness, precision and reliability, the Terrasport I Chronograph adds a new chapter to the history of the pilots‘ chronograph.
