50 years of moon landing or not: For all those who tick differently even on this topic, there are much more exciting things to report about the moon.

Teutonia IV Mondphase
50 years of moon landing or not: For all those who tick differently even on this topic, there are much more exciting things to report about the moon. For example, the fact that it has moved almost two meters away from the Earth in the last 50 years and will eventually detach itself completely from it. Or that since 2019 there has been a Teutonia from Mühle-Glashütte that captures the moon in a window at six o'clock for all eternity.
Under a specially shaped dial window, an approx. 10 mm moon disk rotates once around itself in 59 days. The moon can be found on it twice. Thus, the approx. 29.5-day lunation is displayed in realistic one-day increments. The moon is displayed very realistically by imitating the craters of the real thing, which is about 384,000 km away.
Blue like the night sky
The lancet-shaped hands for hour and minute as well as the second hand are blued and thus match the blue of the moon disk very well.
The middle part of the high-quality case has a vertical cut applied by hand - while the tops of the volute-shaped horns are finely polished.
Reduced to the essentials
The dial delights with a lightly grained surface that features applied indices, a crystal-clear minute scale and lancet-shaped hands with perfect scale length.

The design of the Teutonia IV
Characteristic of all Teutonia models is the intricately crafted case middle section with its volute-shaped horns and vertical cut, which is applied by hand. Compared to the Teutonia II, however, we have made the dial of the Teutonia IV much straighter. That means in detail: Beveled roof bezel instead of stepped B bezel - Clean, finely grained dial instead of traditional guilloché or luxurious ray cut.
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.
