    Off Topic post Elegant, Traditional and Sporty? Three Teutonia Models in the New Summer Collection

    Since 2002, the Teutonia has developed into the in-demand top model in the Mühle collection. The highlights of the unique style of this elegant timepiece include silver-coloured faces with an elaborate guilloche finish, a high-quality case that is water-resistant to 10 bars and features volute-shaped lugs and Mühle's characteristic vertical finish and two-step B-bezels that give the transition between the case and the face its special light appearance.

    Fans of more traditional watches have been making the most of the Teutonia III since 2011. Mühle's self-developed hand-wound movements, faces with an enamel look and fluted bezel all give this time measuring instrument a virtually festive appearance.

    Now, in the year 2015, the Teutonia family is welcoming a new model with a sporty and fashionable design thanks to midnight blue faces framed by a finely polished D-bezel. The fact that the faces do not have a guilloche finish, but instead feature a fine sunray finish, complements their sporty look. The Teutonia II Großdatum Chronometer was the trendsetter for this new Teutonia outfit. Three further models boasting the same new sporty appearance are now also available:

    > Teutonia II Chronograph
    > Teutonia II Kleine Sekunde
    > Teutonia II Medium

    Teutonia II Chrono

    The Teutonia II Chronograph is ticking evidence of how an elegant watch can be given a sporty touch. This is, of course, first and foremost due to the timekeeping function, as the totalizers of the hour and minute counters give the face its own special dynamics. The diagonal displays for the date and the weekday also contribute to this effect.

    The finely equipped chronograph certainly fulfills its role as an elegant watch for the world of business. The dials are intricately engine turned – which gives them a fine embossed relief-like design marked with a stamp. The design is completed by hand-applied indices bevelled on all four sides, and the blackened hands. The latter harmonize beautifully with the silver-colored face, whilst at the same time making the watch display very easy to read.

    Movement: MU 9413, automatic with woodpecker neck regulation, Glashütte three-quarter plate and characteristic surface finishes. Stop-second. Fast date and weekday correction. 48-hr power reserve.

    Case: Brushed/polished stainless steel. Domed, anti-glare sapphire crystal. Transparent case back. Screw-in crown. Water-resistant to 10 bars.

    Dimensions: Diameter 42.0 mm; H 15.5 mm

    Strap: Crocodile leather or stainless steel strap with stainless steel butterfly clasp. Screwed strap attachment bridges

    Teutonia II Small Second

    Off-centre – but not off-balance: the positioning of the off-centre second hand at 6 o’clock and the Mühle lettering at 12 o’clock lend the face of the Teutonia II Kleine Sekunde a particularly harmonious appearance.

    This balance is reinforced by the intricate guilloche finish with its lines of different thicknesses. We at Nautische Instrumente Mühle-Glashütte do not use these lines for decoration purposes only; they serve above all to subdivide the face and give it a very clear layout.

    As with all Teutonia models, the indices are applied, i.e. they are put onto the face by hand. In combination with the both attractive and useful guilloche finish they reveal the core statement of this family of watches: plain elegance and down-to-earth luxury. A clear statement in the everyday world of business.

    I think this is a real winner for Muhle. Love big date complications. Looks like a pretty blue too.

    I've been eyeing up the big date chronometer recently on the Australian AD's site. It's very nice but at close to twice the price of the normal Teutonia II chronometer I have it's just too expensive.

    Wow, was just looking at the Australian AD's pricing. That's a big difference. Both have the same MSRP here in the U.S.

    Yes, it makes me wonder if there's an error with the Australian pricing as the Teutonia II Chronometer is pretty much the same price here and in the US which is rather rare but pleasant to see.

    I've been looking at this one as well, but I noticed that the article on ABlogToWatch states a MSRP of $5000 U.S.

    I'm just wondering which is correct.
