Terrasport I Chronograph
With its typical Mühle straightness and precision, the Terrasport I Chronograph adds a new chapter to the history of the pilot chronograph. As befits an aviator's watch, its dial is designed with high contrasts and for the best possible readability. Thus, the minute track and the clearly drawn hour numerals stand out clearly against the black or cream background.
The Terrasport I Chronograph embodies our DNA like no other watch. Clean lines, clear statement on the dial, all in all a perfect timekeeping instrument. The genes of our ancestors reverberate in the design of this watch. From 1869, they manufactured precise measuring instruments in Glashütte. We are very proud of that. And so I have personally worn the Terrasport I Chronograph since it was introduced in March 2012.
Made in Glashütte
The Mühle chronograph movement is characterized not only by a power reserve of 48 hours, but also by its typical Mühle refinements: In addition to the efficient Mühle rotor, these include the particularly shock-resistant woodpecker neck fine adjustment and the Mühle three-quarter plate incl. Glashütte click and removable escape wheel bridge.
The chrono center hand and the hands of the minute and hour counters have a red tip. These correspond with the red markers of the chronograph scales and thus contribute their part to the good readability.
stainless steel case
Measuring 44 millimeters, the brushed stainless steel case is water resistant to 10 bar and features a scratch-resistant, anti-reflective sapphire crystal.
Rich in contrast
The dial is very high-contrast and designed for the best possible readability. Luminescent hands and hour markers ensure that the time is also easily visible at night.
pilot watches from Glashütte
With the Terrasport, time flies by. On the one hand, because it measures time as a classic pilot's watch - on the other because it takes us back to the beginning of wristwatch production in Glashütte. Since 1845, the town has been synonymous with fine timepieces, but primarily in the form of pocket watches. It was not until the late 1930s that wristwatches were increasingly manufactured: as precise, easy-to-read pilot's watches. At the height of their development, pilot watches were precisely tailored to their intended use: pilots were equipped with chronographs, on-board navigators were given large observation watches, other crew members smaller three-hand watches.
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.
