Mühle Glashütte Rasmus 2000 Divers Watch
Following on from the new releases in the pervious blog, here are Mühle Glashütte's divers watches. Mühle-Glashütte is the only watch manufacturer in the German town of Glashütte that is still owned by a long established local family. The fact that they are still an independent family company is not a matter of course, but instead the achievement of their courageous founders who are also willing to explore the new and unknown.
When it comes to diving in the Great Barrier Reef, the Rasmus 2000 watch is completely in its element. On top of this, it also needs to prove its worth when used in the rough waters of the Baltic Sea or during a dive in a murky lake. They therefore worked with research divers from the University of Rostock when developing this new model. They used the watch when training budding maritime archaeologists or marine biologists at a wide variety of different diving sites and regularly inform us about their experiences with the Rasmus 2000.
Mühle Glashütte have worked together to make the Rasmus 2000 a functional time measuring instrument that is not only extremely easy to read, but also highly pressure-resistant. Another particularly important feature of a professional divers’ watch is its bezel. They have given the bezel of the Rasmus 2000 a continuous minute graduation in line with DIN standards. It also features the obligatory luminous dot that enables users to determine their remaining dive time when using scuba equipment by showing the start time of the dive whilst the minute hand measures the duration of the dive. On top of this, the bezel can only be rotated anti-clockwise in order to avoid a longer remaining dive time from being displayed in the case of accidental movement of the bezel. Thanks to these features, users can rely on our divers’ watch at all times, both under and above water. We have therefore christened it the “Rasmus”, just like the patron saint of sailors.
