    Muhle vs other German brands like Sinn and Nomos

    Hi guys, I've been looking very hard at the Terrasport I and am about to the pull the trigger, but as with other german watches I own, I probably won't see one, in-person, until one is delivered to me and I wonder what I should I expect?

    It seems like the watch should compare favorably to my Sinn 556A and Nomos Club in terms of fit and finish etc. but I'd love to hear the thoughts of some of the Muhle experts on this question - how does the Terrasport I measure up compared to a Sinn or a Nomos?

    Hello,

    I think you will be surprised when you get your Terrasport. Muhle makes an excellent watch. I don't own a Terrasport but my 29er big is very accurate with in Or better then COSC specs. They are adjusted in six different positions for accuracy, most watches are adjusted in four or five. Muhle uses a woodpecker neck which helps with accuracy as well. I haven't seen any other watch company use this in their watches. Nomos and Sinn make great watches. I think Nomos are a little danty in their case design where Muhle's feel solid. I use to think the brand was junk until I got to see one in person. I had a $4k watch picked out at an AD until I saw the Muhle's and went with the Muhle instead and I was glad I did. The movement is nicely decorated also. Hope this helps you.

    Thanks so much for your welcome and response -- you have helped. I notice you have quite a few very fine watches (RGM in particular is beginning to call out to me), so I totally believe what you say.

    Re: Muhle vs other German brands like Sinn and Nomos

    When wanting German quality, I'd go with Muhle over Sinn every time. As has been stated, I also appreciate the fact that Muhle pieces feel less fragile than Nomos offerings. Muhle represents the sporty side of Glashuette (even with their dressier pieces), and I'm thankful for them for doing what they do.

    Seems like I might even be upgrading a bit with a Muhle - the response here is pretty encouraging. I love my Sinn so if the Terrasport I is of even higher quality I'll be very pleased.

    Agree with CM.

    I would choose a Muhle over a Sinn or Nomos for a number of reasons- more variety in their model line, better build quality (IMHO), and not something you see on everyone's wrist.
