    Mühle SAR timer.....first impressions and general thoughts

    Got my SAR this week, had high expectations, as much is made of not just Mühles quality, but German brands in general.

    no stranger to my European friends, as I have owned Laco, Steinhart (let’s not fight about the germanness), Dievas and currently own 2 Nomos and a Sinn U1.

    I was not disappointed.

    this is a chunk of watch that matches the best tool watches out there!

    General musings:
    - rubber strap is one of the best “factory” straps I have ever worn......caution is required with trimming, ut there are a couple of micros on each side of the clasp
    - the clasp, is brushed like the case, and while not TI has the look and feel of it.
    - the strap itself is nice and soft, tapers to the clasp and has some nice detail on it.
    - dial is super legible, nicely laid out and with some of the best lume this side of Seiko!
    - the shiney crown, while contentious, I think is a nice touch.....it engages nicely, has a great feel when winding and is easy to grip
    - the 4 o’clock date, opposite the 4 o’clock crown, has a cyclops.......only my 2nd Watch with a cyclops, this is integrated into the 4mm thick sapphire as opppsed to being stuck on - much better and works really well.
    - the whole dial is nicely balanced, even with the date, and the markers at 3,6,9 and 12 are huge and filled with lume.
    - the case, with the slightly curved lugs, fits my 7’5” wrist perfectly
    - the bumper, for want of a better word, around the bezel is somewhat supple and offers nice protection.
    - so far running +2secs per day, and that’s going to the gym twice and the Eagles concert last night in Vancouver.

    there is literally nothing I don’t like about this watch, in fact, gun to my head, it could be “the one” if that day ever comes.

    suffice to say I highly recommend the SAR

    Very nice! I tried it on about a month ago. I thought it was a wonderful watch. It suited my 6.5" wrist well (my concern had been its size). I tried it on a bracelet, but the rubber strap was very nice as well. I wasn't able to make it mine, but one day I will buy this watch!

    Wear it in good health!

    Congratulations on your SAR! I owned this model on bracelet a few years ago. Have regretted selling, but needed to pass along at the time to raise funds for other purchases. Hope to own again at some point in the future as it is truly a fine timepiece. Enjoy yours.

    Same here.
    I had one with bracelet and sold it a while back. I really like the watch but the bracelet lacked micro adjustment and I just couldn't make it to fit comfortably on my wrist(6.5"). Some day I'll try it on rubber strap.

    More pics below, but got to say I love this more than my Damaskos...owned a DA36 and had been thinking about a rebuy.....not anymore....also had a DA43 and Dsub1.....

    Don’t get me wrong, Damasko are a great brand, but Mühle just take it one step further for me.......the dial layout, lume and just the execution of the SAR put it ahead for me.....

    Even has me seriously thinking about flipping my U1.......I know they are apples to oranges in many ways, but the Mühle really hits above it’s weight class IMHO.
