Automatic or manual?
Opinions are all too often divided on this automotive question of conscience. In the spirit of a conciliatory family business, the Lunova Chronograph makes a successful attempt to mediate between the two: an automatic with an efficient Mühle rotor ensures that the movement is constantly wound, while the sporty chronograph function is set in motion by a proven sliding gate mechanism.
As soon as the chronograph is started with the pusher at 2 o'clock, it enables time measurements of up to 12 hours. These are quickly recognizable thanks to color-coded totalizers incl. chrono center hand in the same color.
The slender rehaut on the outer rim of the dial bears a fine seconds scale with a color-coded 60, which corresponds to the chronograph's seconds display.
In addition to the pure date display, the Lunova Chronograph has a useful additional function for displaying the day of the week.
the name "Lunova"
The Lunova not only shines with our well-known nautical virtues of precision, robustness and good readability - it also extends these with a case design that is unusual for Mühle-Glashütte, in which an unusually large number of surfaces are polished. For example, the case surfaces of the Lunova Datum are completely polished. This is where the name of this Mühle watch comes from: the first part is contributed by the Latin word "lumen". It means shine, light or glow. The second part comes from the Latin word "novus," which translates as new, fresh, or young - making Lunova mean new shine.
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.
