hen it comes to innovation at Mühle-Glashütte, the Teutonia IV is cementing its position as the pioneering figure. The Teutonia IV Moonphase, which was launched in 2019, was the first watch with a moon phase display in the collection of the independent family company from the German town of Glashütte.
Now, two years on, this family of watches is celebrating another milestone by welcoming the company’s smallest chronograph. The new sporty yet elegant medium chronograph with a diameter of 39 millimetres is the ultimate highlight of the new introductions, which also include a classic business watch with a large small-second display and two colourful women’s models with pastel blue and raspberry-coloured faces as the new siblings of the Teutonia IV Moonphase.
The smallest chronograph in the current Mühle collection bears the closest resemblance to its big brother, the Teutonia IV Moonphase. The defining feature of the family’s new medium chronograph is its 39-millimetre stainless steel case, which is attached to Mühle’s known and loved black and blue leather strap with a lighter coloured lining.
The case houses a white face with applied indices and clearly marked minute graduation with small blue second and minute numerals. The same blue colour can also be found in its lance-shaped hour and minute hands as well as the smaller hands in the small-second display in the 9 o’clock position and the chronograph display, all of which extend to the perfect length for clear readings on their respective time scales.
These blued hands are powered by Mühle’s MU 9419 chronograph movement, which features a Glashütte three-quarter plate with a removable escape wheel bridge and the classic Glashütte click.
The movement is also sure to impress wearers with its efficient Mühle rotor and, last but by no means least, the patented particularly shockproof woodpecker neck regulation. Once its components have been carefully finished and assembled, the Mühle movement is put to the test in six different positions and set to achieve accuracy values of between 0 and a maximum of +8 seconds per day. This precision target complies with the German chronometer standard and Mühle’s own regulation standards to ensure that no wearer of a Mühle watch is ever too late because of their time measuring instrument.
With a diary full of important business meetings requiring punctual attendance, a precise time measuring instrument is an absolute must. Business people need look no further than Mühle’s new Teutonia IV Small Second with a dark dial – the perfect timekeeping companion. The case of this timeless business watch is made of highquality stainless steel and has a diameter of 41 millimetres.
As is typical of the Teutonia family, the middle of the case features a vertical finish carefully applied by hand. The top surfaces of the volute-shaped lugs are finely polished and perfectly harmonise with the straightforward design of the bezel of the Teutonia IV Small Second.
Even more harmony is added by the clean-cut design of the face of the new Mühle watch, which conceals a SW 461-1 Mühle version movement with a large small-second and large date. The date display of the Teutonia IV Small Second is around 30 percent larger than that of comparable watches. As a result, it not only makes it easy for wearers to read the date but also compliments the large small-second display to give the face an extremely balanced appearance.
The Teutonia IV Lady is a women’s watch that truly lives up to its name. The watch is available with a pastel blue face or a raspberry-red bi-colour design and thus offers plenty of feminine elegance for wearers with a discerning sense of style. The case of the Teutonia IV Lady has a diameter of 33.5 millimetres, thus making it ideal for even the most delicate of wrists.
While the blue-faced watch takes a more subtle approach with its pastel shade and silver-coloured hands and indices, its raspberry-coloured sibling is happy to stand out with its luxurious golden highlights in the form of intricately gold-plated lance-shaped hands and applied indices. A final splash of gold is provided by the dial division, which elegantly curves around the date display in the 6 o’clock position to give the watch a perfect finishing touch.
