This year's highlight from the world of fine watches is just around the corner: Because from 19-26 March, watch aficionados will once again rendezvous at Baselworld 2015. And you can marvel at four new timepieces from Nautische Instrumente Mühle-Glashütte at the world's largest watch trade fair.
One of them is the one-hand M 29 Classic Einzeiger. As the newest member of the MÜHLE Nautische Instrumente watch family, it resorts to the design of the traditional one-hand measuring gauges by R. Mühle & Sohn. One-hand measuring gauges included, for example, the "Mühle universal measurement for watchmakers" or the "ideal speed gauge" - instruments that enabled the precise measurement of various measuring scales, from 1/10th mm, through 1/50th mm, right down to 1/100th mm.
The various precision scales of these instruments, typically crafted to customers' exact wishes, are also reflected in today's M 29 Classic family of gauge-inspired watches. Following the versions with a centre second hand and small second hand is the new one-hand M 29 Classic Einzeiger, the third timepiece in this watch family.
Whereas the models with a centre and second hand measure the time by the second, the one-hand model is geared to the time measurements of everyday life. Whether it's six-thirty or a quarter past three; the idea here is not to observe the seconds ticking away but to read the time quickly at a glance. That is why the M 29 models by Mühle-Glashütte offer the right instrument for the different ways of perceiving time, from precise seconds to a slow presentation. As one would expect of a timepiece from Mühle-Glashütte, we have naturally designed the one-hand watch with utmost precision. For this purpose, the one-hand M 29 Classic Einzeiger is equipped with the dual scale of the original gauges. It allows the time to be read quickly and easily in quarter-hour intervals on the inner ring of the scale. In the precise, second-echelon scale on the flange, the ten-minute intervals are represented by longer indices, whilst the extremely fine indices show the time in two-minute intervals.
The MÜHLE team would be delighted to assist you to have acloser look at the one-hand M 29 Classic Einzeiger, along with many other timepieces, at the Baselworld show. As usual, you'll find their booth in Hall 2.0, Stand A 39 from 19-26 March 2015.
The M29 Classic Einzeiger will retail for 1400€ on strap, with stainless steel bracelet it will cost 1500€.
Case diameter is 42,4 mm. Inside ticks a SW 200-1 in Mühle execution.
