Welcome to our web tour of our manufactory in Glashütte. With 63 employees, we manufacture high-quality mechanical timepieces here: with the utmost care, a passion for precision and largely by hand. With our 360° videos, you can take a first look at our parts production, finishing and assembly. But of course, nothing is more exciting than the reality itself. We would also like to welcome you back soon in person for a guided tour of the manufactory, which is why you will also find information here for a visit to Glashütte.
Perfect panoramic view
Welcome in our manufactory
Before a Mühle watch ticks for the first time, a whole lot of man-hours and many different work steps are necessary. You can get to know three important stations on the way to a Mühle watch here. Experience parts production, finishing and watch assembly in exciting 360° videos.
CNC machining center
A look into the parts production
At up to 50,000 revolutions per minute, the milling head bores into a brass base support. This generates heat that must be cooled with special cutting and lubricating oil … Experience our CNC machining centers at work and don’t miss the fully automatic change of a drilling head either.
Function and aesthetics
A look into the finissage
With a great deal of dexterity, our finisher places the grinding pencil for pearling on a three-quarter plate. Not one of the many small, half-overlapping circular grinds may be too deep here … that would destroy the entire grinding pattern. Experience our finishers in the aesthetic and functional completion of our workpieces.
In tranquility lies the precision
A look into the watch assembly
In parts production, you hear a constant hum. In the finishing department, it sometimes sounds like the dentist. In watch assembly, you hear … nothing. With the utmost concentration, our watchmakers assemble a movement section or work on regulating a movement to produce mechanical movements that are as reliable as they are precise. Just take a look over their shoulder.

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.
