Germany’s Muehle Glashuette adds a sporty twist to its elegant Teutonia line of watches with the release of the Teutonia Sport I, a masculine-looking chronograph with a racing-inspired tachymeter-scale surrounding the dial. Here’s a sneak peek at the Teutonia Sport I ahead of its official debut at the upcoming Baselworld 2017 watch fair.
The brushed and polished stainless steel case of the Mühle Glashütte Teutonia Sport I measures 42.6 mm in diameter and 15.5 mm thick. It is fronted by a bidirectional rotating bezel with a ratcheted edge and an engraved minutes scale. Inside the bezel, on the flange of the black tricompax dial, is a red-printed tachymeter scale, which, used in conjunction with the watch’s chronograph function, can calculate speeds over distances up to 1,000 meters. The three subdials — chronograph counters at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock, small seconds at 9 o’clock — have light gray borders. The date appears in a window at 4 o’clock. Super-LumiNova appears on the hour and minute hand and applied hour indices. Two plunger-style pushers flanking the screw-down crown activate the chronograph’s start, stop, and return-to-zero operations. The bright red color of the central chronograph seconds hand, and on the tips of the two small chrono subdial hands, echo the color of the tachymeter scale numerals.
The table contains the automatic μ9413 movement of Muller, which is visible through the exhibition caseback. Like other sports in the German watchmaking industry center Glashutte Saxony, the traditional half of the mainplate and decorated finish typical Glashutte watches. The company also raised its caliber with its own custom rotor windings and patented “Woodpecker Neck” Regulatory. In addition to time, date and timepieces, the motion provides a quick correction date and stop-seconds function.
Complete sport photos, Müller Glashutte Teutonia sport I provide waterproof leather-and-rubber strap, height 100 meters waterproof lug through screw with attachments bridge and stainless steel buckle. The price of the watch will be announced in Basel in 2017.
