Mühle Glasshütte Driven to Perfection

Although Hans Jurgen Mühle established his company “Mühle-Glashütte GmbH nautische instrumente und feinmechanik” in 1994, the family history in watch works dates back to well over a century. Established in 1869 as manufacturer of precision instruments, Robert Mühle designed specifically for the local watch market, as well as apprentice schools in existence at the time.

Mühle Glasshütte is known for more than fine watches. With a rich history in precision instruments, it is only natural that they have made a name for themselves by producing fine, nautical equipment: Barometers, thermometers and hygrometers are a few of the nautical instruments that are manufactured by Mühle Glasshütte. With commercial ships, precision is a necessity, which is why Mühle Glasshütte is trusted by many who operate on the open sea.

Excellence in nautical instruments has paved the way for a new standard in nautical watches: The S.A.R. Rescue-Timer. Built for service, the Search and Rescue watch has been in service by the German Maritime Search and Rescue Service and its 56 cruisers for a long term.
 

The movement of the SAR Rescue Timer is the SW 200-1, automatic made by Mühle. The casing is stainless steel with a 4mm thick sapphire crystal and a screw-in crown for water resistance to 100 bars. The face is simple and easy to read with luminous hands and indices for nocturnal reading capability. When searching for a watch, do not settle for anything other than the one that is right for function, style and practicality. Mühle Glasshütte offers many different styles of watches; find the one that works for you.
