Mühle Glashütte M 29 CLASSIC
The new Mühle watches are time measuring instruments with a clearly defined instrument character that is the legacy of the company’s 140 years of tradition in manufacturing precise measuring devices. The M 29 Classic aims to make an excellent impression right from the first glance, which is why they have based the design of its face on a historical Robert Mühle dial gauge. They were above all inspired by the fine and clearly delineated scale of model 29 dial gauge. This scale clearly manifests the values that have been inherent in the development of our instruments right from the start, namely precision and the precise readability of the measurement in question.
Nowadays, Mühle Glashütte also place high value on the special robustness of their time measuring instruments. This quality is the product of the ‘nautical transformation’ that occurred in our company history after the reunification of Germany, when they decided to start manufacturing nautical instruments and ship’s timepieces. The mechanism of the M 29 Classic is therefore fitted with their very own highly shockproof fine regulation, while its high-quality case boasts a pressure resistance of 10 bars and a screw in crown with side protection. If this new model is reminiscent of the 29er Big. The M 29 Classic features the same case as the 29er Big watch, which was named after a class of sailing boats. Mühle Glashütte decided to use this case to pay tribute to the historical use of the number 29 in the new model and it also acts as an ideal representation of how nautical and dial gauge traditions come together to form the M 29 Classic.
The movement is an SW 200-1, automatic; Mühle version with woodpecker neck regulation, own rotor and characteristic surface finishes. Stop-second. Fast date correction. 38-hr power reserve.
In short a fantastic looking watch, with stunningly well made case and movement, taking its design inspiration from its own archives in instrumentation design.
