Our S.A.R. Rescue-Timer is a prime example of Nautische Instrumente Mühle-Glashütte and its many years of dedication to manufacturing time measuring instruments that faithfully serve their wearers over a long period of time. In order to ensure that our Mühle watches continue to work as well as they did on their very first day for a long time, even as long as 10 years, we only use high-quality materials and components in our manufacturing activities and process these parts with the utmost care. Nevertheless, in order to ensure the longevity of Mühle watches and their ability to retain their value, wearers also need to take proper care of their watch’s case and movement. You should also send in your watch to be serviced every 4 to 5 years so that its movement can be cleaned and given new oil and other maintenance work can be carried out.
Servicing a Mühle watch
Mechanical wristwatches provide maximum performance every single day. While you may only use your car for an hour to travel to work and the same length of time to return home every day, your wristwatch has to work around the clock. The balance of a Mühle movement completes a total of 691,200 alternations in any given 24-hour period, meaning that it is accelerated to top speed 691,200 times a day and stopped by the escapement just as frequently. These alternations put a huge strain on the movement, which acts as the engine of a mechanical watch. Despite such a strain, a Mühle watch only needs to ‘have its oil changed’ every 4-5 years.
