The rescue pilots of the German Navy were looking for a chronograph that would allow the calculation of flight speeds - but at the same time be able to withstand the toughest operational conditions. This was the birth of the S.A.R. Flieger-Chronograph, which we developed together with the Navy rescue pilots.
The S.A.R. Flieger-Chronograph was created in 2010 in cooperation with the rescue pilots of the German Navy. They were looking for a robust, easy-to-read chronograph that could be used to calculate flight speeds, among other things. The Mühle tool watch meets these requirements thanks to its highly reliable fine regulation and specially designed chronograph functions with a highlighted 10-second scale. The idea to develop such a watch came from the Sea King crews themselves. Because even if their helicopters are equipped with robust technology: for them, the time on the wrist still provides the basis for time measurements that are necessary for navigation.
Start pusher at 8 o'clock
The large start pusher is easy to operate even with gloves. So that it does not press on the back of the hand when flying, it was placed at 8 o'clock.
10 seconds scale
The clearly marked 10-second scale was particularly important to the rescue pilots. This is used for time measurements to calculate the airspeed.
The large case diameter allows the time or a stop time to be safely recorded at a glance. For easy differentiation of both time functions, the chronograph displays are marked in orange.
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.
