2019 is a landmark year for the Mühle-Glashütte company, an independent, family company, as it marks 150 years since the founding of the company by Robert Mühle, and 2019 is also the 25th year of Nautische Instrumente Mühle-Glashütte too! The Mühle Watches 150th Anniversary is set to be celebrated in a number of ways over the next few ways, and the first of these is in the form of a brand new anniversary rotor in blue. With the Teutonia Sport I and the Sea-Timer BlackMotion being the latest new releases from the brand too!
Founded in the region of Glashütte back in 1869, by Robert Mühle, the company began by making measuring instruments for other watchmakers in the village and then went on to produce speedometers, rev counters, car clocks, nautical instruments and, eventually, what we know the brand for now, watches. We are now five generations down the road, and the the Mühle family are still going strong, run by Thilo Mühle, Mühle Glashütte is hitting its stride as a manufacturer of fine mechanical watches.
The Mühle Watches 150th Anniversary Rotor!
To celebrate the 150th year of Mühle watches, the company have decided to equip all automatic watches produced this year with a special edition of their efficient rotor, this includes the two models that we mentioned above. This anniversary rotor has been given a special blue anodised middle segment that is made of aluminium, which also contains a special anniversary engraving too! This will not be available in current or old lines purchased in 2019, it must be a brand new line that has been released, and manufactured, in 2019 specifically, so make sure to contact us before purchasing to double check if you’re unsure!
This sounds like a really fantastic idea from the brand, and we are looking forward to seeing some of these special edition models arrive. This is a fantastic one off opportunity to own a piece of German timekeeping history. This striking blue rotor will also add a stand out feature to your watch, and with the glass case-back that we have come to know and love, you will get a perfect view into this special edition movement!
