Nautical Virtues:

Clear Display, Reliability, Precision

For 140 years the name “Mühle” has stood for precision and precision measuring. The foundation for this was laid by Robert Mühle who began manufacturing measuring instruments for the watchmaking industry in Glashütte in 1869. We are still devoted to precision measuring since 1994, however, in the form of nautical instruments, marine time systems and marine chronometers.

Nautical Virtues

Marine Chronometer Our time measuring instrument for professional navigation: a marine chronometer manufactured to DIN 8319 by Mühle-Glashütte.

At sea, precision, reliability and optimum clarity of display are what count. It is therefore of paramount importance to add reliability to accuracy. That is exactly what we have done.

We make no distinction between the requirements to be met by timepieces used in professional navigation and those worn on the wrist. Therefore, we now also manufacture high-quality wristwatches bound by nautical principles and our family tradition.

Watches can be powered in various ways: battery-operated mechanisms are regulated by the oscillations of a quartz crystal. These run extremely accurately and are used in our marine chronometers and nautical instruments.

In our wristwatches we use only mechanical movements, which contain filigree parts that completely fascinate wearers. Moreover, they need neither a battery nor current, and therefore always serve their wearer reliably. And even if a mechanical movement will probably never quite match the precision of a quartz one, as regards accuracy we get about as close as humanly possible.
