Terrasport IV BRONZE
Whether Otto Lilienthal or the Wright brothers: they were intrepid individualists who defied all danger and incomprehension by launching themselves from a hill in their biplanes, thus making the dream of flying come true. What would have suited these aviation pioneers better than the Terrasport IV BRONZE?
The case center, crown and bezel are made of aluminum bronze - a material that is also used in shipbuilding for the manufacture of propellers and is equally resistant to fresh and salt water. In addition, the bronze forms a characteristic patina over time, which protects the underlying material from environmental influences.
The Terrasport IV BRONZE has a dark brown vintage leather strap to match the mocha-colored dial. In addition, the fluted bezel is distinguished from the khaki variant by its matte finish.
The mushroom-shaped pilot's crown is very easy to operate due to the distance of the handle surface from the case. In addition, the traditional windmill is very plastic in high relief.
Vintage leather strap
In keeping with the retro look of the dials, the Terrasport IV BRONZE is equipped with vintage leather straps in matching colors.
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.
