Germany has several excellent too watch brands, however for some reason, Muhle Glashutte often gets over looked. American customers seem to have a habit of forgetting about this awesome watch company, so its time to do an article. This company has many striking deigns, and offer plenty of different purpose driven watches, but today i will focus on the new Muhle Glashutte Sea-Timer watch. The new timepiece is the BlackMotion watch, and it is an all purpose sports watch that comes in a stainless steel design, with a cool black PVD coating. This BlackMotion watch has a 44 millimeter diameter and a thickness of 12,5 millimeters. The case is stainless steel, and the black coat is made of titanium carbide.
This give the case a smooth and black look all over. The bezel is bi-directional, and the crystal is made of scratch resistant sapphire. Powering the watch is the ever reliable Sellita SW-200-1. This is an automatic movement which offers a 38 hour power reserve, and 26 jewels. This movement had stood the test of time, and is very well respected in the watch world. The watch beats at a frequency of 28,800 vph, and is very smooth. The movement and its working are visible through the exhibition caseback. One last thing, as this watch is an all purpose sports watch, is has been made water resistant to 300 meters in depth.
This watch has a very clean and visible dial. The dial is flat, black, and has great contrasting white indices for the hour markers. There is a date complication at the 4 o’clock position, and i would have thought is would be at the 6 or the 3, but the firm chose the 4. The Muhle dial branding is relatively quiet with soft gray letters at the top half of the dial, but the model’s name is done in bright white text, and is very visible. This is a very fine watch, and i am impressed with its functionality.
I look forward to seeing the watch in its original stainless steel finish. Yes i appreciate the black PVD look, but i also love a polished steel case. This Muhe Glashutte watch has a price point of $2,599. For a German watch, with a Sellita movement, and 300 meters of water resistance, this price point is very fair.
