Terrasport IV GMT
Today New York, tomorrow Rio, the day after tomorrow Tokyo: keeping track of the local time at your destination in another time zone requires a lot of organizational talent. With the Terrasport IV GMT, Mühle-Glashütte therefore offers another exciting variant in its popular Terrasport family with the display of a second time zone - in the look of historical pilot watches.
In the Terrasport, classic Mühle virtues meet finely tuned details: the red marked GMT hand with the corresponding red marker at the 24 is just one example.
The Terrasport IV GMT allows a second time zone to be displayed in a particularly clear manner. For this purpose, the 24-hour scale has been relocated to a slender rehaut on the edge of the dial.

The reduced look of the Terrasport IV GMT is based on the design of classic pilot watches. The black dial with its filigree hands and clear numerals makes the time visible at a glance.
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.
