Mühle Glashütte, precision engineering from Mühle
For 140 years the name Mühle has stood for precision and precision measuring. The foundation for this was laid by Robert Mühle in the year 1869. After his training at the watch manufacturer Moritz Großmann, Mühle founded his own company in Glashütte, Germany, manufacturing precision measuring instruments for the local watch industry and watchmakers’ school. The latest models available at Oki & Oro continue this tradition.
Mühle Glashütte is the only watch manufacturer in the German town of Glashütte that is still owned by a long-established local family whose history of watch making dates back to 1869.
Over the years, this passion for precision measuring has become a full-blown family tradition. Nowadays, however, Mühle also manufactures reliable and precise wristwatches alongside marine time systems, marine chronometers and other nautical instruments. It is these nautical timepieces that form the focus of our current name: Nautische Instrumente Mühle Glashütte.
Both measuring devices for watchmakers and nautical instruments are therefore an integral part of the company history. Both of these traditions also still play a role in developing new timepieces, the best example of which is the M 29 Classic and the watches designed for use by the Sea Battalion of the German Navy.
The wristwatches produced by Nautische Instrumente Mühle Glashütte stand out due to their clarity of display, excellent functionality and high precision. The S.A.R. models in particular demonstrate these excellent qualities every day, for example on the rescue lifeboats of the Deutsche Gesellschaft zur Rettung Schiffbrüchiger (German Maritime Search and Rescue Service), where the watch mechanisms also have to withstand extreme stress and strain. This is why they are provided with our patented woodpecker neck regulation, a particularly reliable and precise regulation. As a result, every Mühle watch becomes a precision instrument with one main purpose: to measure time accurately and display it clearly.
