    Is Mühle-Glashütte's discounting hurting them?

    I just received my Panova and love it. Got a good deal from the AD and was able to get them to match a price from one of the discount sites. I always see Muhle's on sale and I get that they need to move inventory, but I feel once it starts doing that, the branding goes to hell. My $720 watch has an in house movement, not ETA or some German producer. I just wonder why this brand doesn't get more praise.

    Let's keep it out little secret.... I'm sure (and hope) they are making profit, and we have great and cool watches with story, from family manufacturer with human face - for quite decent and realistic prices... Besides Muhle, I'm Omega fan. Their price policy is slowly going to hell and soon I will not be following them anymore, as once I have to pay above 5000 USD for SS watch, it's a no go area for me. Not because I cannot afford it, but because it's simply not worth it. As long as Muhle stays in 1000-3000 USD range and keeps precision and reliability of their movements and original design of their watches like today - they'll be my favourite brand!

    They are a great brand for those who know good quality watches, IMHO.

    What in-house movement are you talking about ? The Panova is fitted with a SW200-1 in Mühle execution. But in-house ? No way.

    Oh. I thought the SW200-1 was their movement. The only mass producer I know of is ETA.

    The SW200-1 by Sellita is a clone of the ETA 2824-2 with one added jewel.

    Sellita is like the Made in China version of a Swiss movement.

    MG has only one unique, future-classic and iconic model. I own it and enjoy it every single day.
