Robert Mühle Zeigerdatum Bring on the Complications: the New Robert Mühle Zeigerdatum

Robert Mühle Zeigerdatum

Glashütte, September 2016

Mühle-Glashütte is now honouring the life and work of its founder with its new Robert Mühle special edition, which also breathes fresh life into a classic complication that is now a rare treasure: the date hand. As you would expect from a timepiece made in a genuine manufacturing workshop, the mechanism was personally designed by Mühle-Glashütte's expert watchmakers themselves. This exclusive characteristic is even more enhanced by the fact that this special edition watch is limited to a total of just 100 pieces.

After founding his family company in 1869, Robert Mühle played a significant role in establishing the excellent reputation of the German town of Glashütte as a top watchmaking location thanks to his high-precision measuring instruments. This year, he would have celebrated his 175th birthday. This is reason enough for Mühle-Glashütte to celebrate its namesake by launching a traditionally manufactured classic timepiece that reflects the values practised by Robert Mühle in the most stunning way possible. The new Robert Mühle Zeigerdatum ...

Moon over Saxony

SAXONIA MOON PHASE in front of the famous Rakotz Bridge in Kromlau, Saxony, in the full-moon night on 20 June

The new SAXONIA MOON PHASE is the star of a global photography project

Glashütte, July 2016

Unveiled at the SIHH in January, the SAXONIA MOON PHASE is now becoming available at points of sale. It pairs an accurate moon-phase display with the striking Lange outsize date. A photo shoot against a Saxon backdrop in the moonlight aptly expresses the perfect combination of precision and aesthetics. The portrayal kicks off an international online event.

Astronomy, photography, and space travel are the three key disciplines that have given us close-up encounters with the moon. But, despite the latest insights, it has lost none of its allegorical fascination. After all, the magical appeal ...

Senator Excellence: 24 Days on the Test Bench

Senator Excellence:A rotating test device is used to simulate the conditions under which the watch is worn on the wrist and to test it in different positions.

Manufactory Calibre 36 promises new standard of quality

Glashütte, June 2016

At the heart of the Senator Excellence the manufactory Calibre 36 introduces a new generation of timepieces, and with it the Glashütte Original manufactory defines an innovative new standard of quality. Every single one of these watches bears a special engraving on the case back, which must be understood as a promise. Together with an individual examination certificate, the engraving guarantees the owner that the watch meets the highest standards in terms of stability, running time, precision and aesthetics, and that it has been thoroughly examined over the course of a long-term test lasting 24 days – under conditions even more demanding than those in force for the standard German chronometer tests.

Stichwort: Fliegendes Toubillon

Alfred Helwig, Fachlehrer an der Deutschen Uhrmacherschule Glashütte, kommt das Verdienst zu, die vom bedeutenden Uhrengenie Abraham-Louis Breguet ersonnene Konstruktion des Tourbillons weiter verfeinert zu haben: Ca. 1920 ersann er nämlich das sogenannte "Fliegende Tourbillon". Während Tourbillons üblicherweise zweifach gelagert sind, wird das Alfred-Helwig-Tourbillon von nur einem Lager gehalten, ist also fliegend aufgehangen.

Graham-Hemmung

Ruhende Hemmung für ortsfeste Uhren

Diese von George Graham um 1715 entwickelte Hemmung erlaubte den Bau sehr genau gehender Pendeluhren, wie sie noch bis in die jüngste Vergangenheit gefertigt wurden. Vornehmlich wurde diese Hemmung bei Wand- und Bodenstanduhren mit langem Pendel eingesetzt, wobei Präzisionsuhren mit Pendelamplituden von nur 1 ° arbeiteten.

Die Hemmung besteht aus dem Ankerrad mit typischer Zahnung und dem ...
