It's true: we at Nautische Instrumente Mühle-Glashütte began by manufacturing marine chronometers and ship's clocks. Therefore, many Mühle watches have a nautical origin. The 29er was named after a sailing dinghy used by young sailors to compete in the youth championships of the German Sailing Association.
The most beautiful outfit a Mühle movement can wear: The alternation of shiny and matte surfaces creates an exciting interplay of light reflections.
The side protection of the screw-down crown fulfills a dual function: it reinforces the dynamic appearance of the watch and effectively protects the crown from lateral impacts.
The 29er dial
The applied hour markers on the inside and the fine minute track on the outside of the dial: this division into two parts makes the dial of the 29er particularly clear.
Like the dinghy, like the watch
29er - the name says it all! The watch family was named after the sailing dinghy of the same name, with which young sailors compete in the youth championship class of the German Sailing Association. The dinghy is considered to be particularly fast, sporty and dynamic. This made it the ideal namesake for our 29er. The only difference was that we had driven all speed out of it - in favor of accuracy.
Where can I find technical details for my Mühle wristwatch?
The most important technical information on watches in our current collection can be found on our website by visiting the “Wristwatches” page and selecting your collection and model. Technical details for your model can also be found in the instruction manual for your watch. If you have any further questions, especially regarding older models, please feel free to contact us.
What precision can I expect from my Mühle wristwatch?
It is normal for mechanical watches to display a certain amount of tolerance because fluctuating temperatures, the tension of the winder springs or the position in which a watch is stored or worn can all affect its operation and accuracy. As we do not know how a watch will be worn, we always regulate our watches so that they are slightly fast, with a precision of between 0 and max. +8 seconds per day. Why? Because we want to ensure that Mühle watch wearers are never too late because of their time measuring instruments.
How often does my mechanical Mühle wristwatch need to be serviced?
Mechanical watches should be serviced from time to time. Over the years, the processes taking place inside the movement cause a certain amount of abrasion due to parts wearing. This abrasion contaminates the oil and sometimes forms deposits, which may cause the precision of the watch to deteriorate. We therefore recommend that our watches be fully serviced every four to five years. We advise wearers to get the watertightness of their watches checked every two years.
