    Cool Mühle S.A.R. Flieger Chronograph - Pictorial

    Note: This is a post I made elsewhere but in honor of Mühle's new forum on WUS, I'm posting this updated version




    I'd just like to introduce you to one of my favorite German watches, Mühle's S.A.R. Flieger Chronograph

    Mühle is another fine house from the Glasshütte region (DE), founded in 1869, so certainly not a newcomer to the watchmaking industry. Like many of the high-quality *and* more affordable watchmaking houses, Mühle takes proven movements from well-established industry leaders like ETA and builds upon them with in-house modifications and own "dressing" of the movement's plate, rotor, etc.

    Mühle started with ETA's Valjoux 7750 and added their own regulation construction [ref. balance-wheel], three-quarter "plate" and own rotor design. These "modifications" are significant enough that Mühle has their own designation for the movement, the MU 9408.

    The S.A.R. Flieger Chrongraph has been in Mühle's product line since it's introduction at Basel 2010 and remains one of their top models. Not a pilot, nor a diver, it's almost a combination of both, designed for maritime search and rescue.

    The distinguishing points of this particular Chronograph include:


    • Crown and pushers are placed on the left-side of the watch, to avoid the wrist area; the start-stop pusher is located at 20:00 and is designed for use with gloves.
    • The face is very legible; Mühle has used bright-white (Super-Luminova) and orange to distinguish the chronograph functions from the regular time indicators.
    • Mühle has highlighted the first 10s in orange; this timing section is used to calculate flight speeds using the so-called "1 in 60" rule.


    The basics:


    • 44.0 x 16.2 mm satin SS case with sapphire case-back, unidirectional bezel
    • MU 9408 automatic movement with 48 h power reserve, fast date correction
    • Sapphire crystal, 2.5 mm / domed and anti-reflection coated
    • Water-resistant to 100M (10ATM), screw-in crown,
    • Black face with white Super-LumiNova hands and indices, orange chronograph functions
    • SS strap (satin) w/ safety clasp



    The Pictorial:

    The proverbial un-boxing...








    Super Luminova in action...
















    I really like the links on this particular band; the angles of each link plays with the light, giving it a unique look...




    Lume comparison; love Mühle's choice to go with blue (but note the bezel marker and chrong. seconds hand are in green)


    Last but not least, a few wrist shots are in order...

    Awesome post! I love the SAR Flieger Chronograph and have had the pleasure of having one on wrist at a local AD. I'd love to own one someday.

    Fantastic photos of a stunning watch. Wish I had wrists that could handle it. The only complaint I have, and it's very minor, is the 12 o'clock triangle that partially obscures the 12-hour totalizer; I think the 2 luminous dots suffice to distinguish 12 o'clock in the dark. Though I normally prefer straps, on this watch your photos of the bracelet are so good that I would go bracelet all the way. Thanks for a great review and enjoy the watch.

    Thanks, everyone!

    I had it on this weekend and it never gets boring...

    ...even with some stiff competition from my other tool watches...
