Mühle-Glashütte Robert Mühle Mondphase

For five generations, the Mühle family has been producing high accuracy instruments in Glashütte: first measuring tools, then marine chronometers, and finally wristwatches. To mark this important milestone, the brand is launching a new complication: a moon phase.


ühle-Glashütte has been dedicated to achieving precise measurement for 150 years. In celebration of this fact, the manufacturing workshop based in the German town of Glashütte is launching a special edition aligned with the moon in its anniversary year of 2019.

The newly designed moon phase display of the “RMK 04” Robert Mühle calibre is so precise that an impressive 122 years must pass before it deviates from the actual position of the moon by even a day.

Alongside its new moon phase display, the 42 mm diameter platinum, red gold or stainless steel case of this special limited edition also houses the company’s very own up/down display and the Mühle hand date

The moon displayed on the disc is the result of meticulous work by the watchmakers at Mühle-Glashütte, who have carefully reproduced the large and small craters of this astronomical body located 384,000 kilometres from the Earth. This impressive feature is surrounded by the night sky in a dark blue that makes it stand out even more. It is produced using an anodised aluminium plate onto which the intricate details of the moon are laser engraved. The new Robert Mühle Mondphase is limited to a total of 150 timepieces.
