Mühle Glashütte

Jamee Caña

There’s one thing every people would do as soon as they wake up in the morning, next to half opening their eyes for sure. They would surely check the time, right? And if they see that they still have a few minutes left still, they would probably snooze some more. This only shows how important time and an accurate timepiece is for all people. Can you imagine the chaos that would happen if the time on our clocks and watches is not accurate? There would be massive delays and lots of confusion all over. This is why even our precious mobile or smartphones have clocks as one basic and necessary design feature.

Why choose Mühle Glashütte

Mühle Glashütte Timepiece

In its basic and truest form, watches and timepieces have only one specific use, which is essentially to tell time accurately and clearly. Sounds simple right? But there are a lot of factors out there that affect the quality and accuracy of a timepiece’s basic timekeeping function. These factors may include water, air pressure, scratches, oil and many more that may affect the mechanism and movement of a watch thus affecting its timekeeping accuracy, clarity and precision.

Men primarily have very simple taste when it comes to their necessities. They mostly can live without the frills of a certain product as long as that particular item can be relied upon to provide its core function exceptionally. And when it comes to uncomplicated timepieces, they would absolutely appreciate Mühle Glashütte watches for their display clarity, high precision and excellent functionality as well as its noncomplex design and look.

Elementary time measurement and precision for almost 150 years

Mühle Glashütte was founded in Glashütte Germany in 1994 by Hans-Jürgen Mühle. Although the company was founded in 1994, the family business can trace its roots as far back as 1869 when the company then founded by Robert Mühle, is into making precision measuring instruments for the Glashutte watch company as well as the watchmaking school which used the new metric system of measurement for precise measurement.

From manufacturing precision measuring instruments, the company also produced speedometers, rev counters, car clocks and tachometers in the 1920s to 1940s.  After WWII, the family business evolved into producing dial trains for pressure and temperature measuring instruments. And in 1994 went into nautical instruments and precision engineering which provides marine chronometers, ship’s timepieces, barometers or hygrometer. Two years later, the company expanded into making mechanical wristwatches. In 2003, the company earned patent rights to its “woodpecker neck regulation” which ensures the accuracy of every timepiece’s mechanism under the harshest conditions.

Basic timekeeping function and clarity

Mühle-Glashütte is not into luxury watches. The company set its efforts in providing middle priced high quality and fundamentally designed watches with leather, steel or rubber bracelets. These timepieces are divided into four categories: Nautical, Classic, Sporty Instrument and Limited Special Edition timepieces.

One of the most iconic timepiece from Mühle-Glashütte would be the SAR Rescue-Timer. This particular model was designed with the German Maritime Search and Rescue Service, known for its superior readability and clarity as well as toughness under extreme conditions.

The Mühle-Glashütte Pro-Mare Chronograph is also a noteworthy mechanical watch to consider. It is almost at par with the SAR Rescue-Timer model and more. This watch is solid tough, well made and of course is equipped with the “woodpecker neck regulation”. And as much as the company focused on the performance and function of this watch, it is surprisingly charming and elegant in its simplicity and clean finish.

With the company’s extensive history in precision and measuring instruments of all kinds, it is no wonder that Mühle-Glashütte’s essence is to provide elementary time measurement which is basically to measure time accurately and display it clearly. Mühle-Glashütte timepieces would be an excellent choice for men who want a reliable and functional timepiece and can do without the fancy add-ons. One would definitely be obsessed looking at his Mühle-Glashütte watch first thing upon waking up, and still admire the clarity and legibility of the timepieces’ display every single time.
