    Muhle Glashutte Search and Rescue

    Does anyone have or had a MG SaR watch?

    I've been looking at it for a while and I was considering this watch or a sinn u1. I like the MG because it seems that not many people have this watch or at least i can't find a thread on it unlike the sinn threads.

    If you do have it how do you like it as far as quality, accuracy and looks?

    Thanks

    Picture Re: Muhle Glashutte Search and Rescue

    Mühle Glashütte is one of my favorite watch manufacturers for a variety of reasons. I'll spare too many details, but you'll get the idea

    I very much enjoy this SAR Timer. Like all Mühle Glashütte watches, it's made with the utmost of care. The movement is not your run of the mill ETA 2824-2 and its lume is as good as any watch currently made. As for timekeeping, it is very stable, precise, and accurate out of the box. It is comfortable on the wrist and has plenty of heft at 5.6 ounces. Its minimalist dial and bezel design separates it from most all other deep water watches. While its style is not for everyone, I happen to really like it. It gets a great deal of wrist time.

    Hope this helps

    The Mühle SAR is one of my favourite watches, and I really want to pick up one some day. Excellent brand and good value for money. Those pictures are really nice

    Nice pics - I've never owned one but I've always liked the look of them - a very legible dial.

    That SAR looks like a tank of a watch. I'd like to get into one of those too. It seems to be to be a good alternative to the IWC Aquatimer, if you don't need the rotating bezel.

    I owned a SAR for a short while. I found the look to be too "technical" for my taste. Also, the crystal was very reflective due to lack of AR coating.

    Have you looked at the Nautic Timer? Much better looking IMO and comes with a bezel.

    Outstanding watch! Just got rid of mine on an impulse for a Sinn that I have already gotten rid of..

    The watch was a torch and kept very solid time. Additionally, it is very easy to read from any angle.

    Drawbacks IMO:

    No bezel (I work in the water..)
    Integrated bracelet/deployant. I like to change straps all the time, so this kind of bugged me.

    Now as far as this one or a U-1, I guess it would depend on what you like to look at every day and what you will use it for as they are completely different watches.

    Good luck!

    Here are a couple of my recently departed SAR (sniff, sniff..)



    Respectfully,
