Mühle-Glashütte Teutonia III Handaufzug
November 16, 2011
The new Teutonia III Handaufzug features the first hand-wound movement from German watchmaker Mühle-Glashütte.
The classically styled grooved bezel, Breguet-shape hands, minute track and Arabic numerals are reminiscent of traditional Glashütte pocket watches. And the purist dial and case with its volute-shaped lugs are genuine Teutonia.
"The MU 9411 is the second movement after the automatic MU 9408 to have its own calibre designation from Mühle. This is not only proof of the ongoing expansion of manufacturing capability at Mühle- Glashütte, it also points to the path along which Mühle-Glashütte is currently travelling: towards becoming a manufacture."
Functions include hours, minutes, central seconds and date display. The MU 9411 hand-wound movement with woodpecker neck regulation (developed by Mühle in 2003), features hand finished surfaces, Glashütte three-quarter plate, Quickset mechanism, stop second and a power reserve of 42-hours. Movement is regulated in six positions.
Brushed/polished stainless steel case is 42 mm in diameter and 11.2 mm in height. Domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflection coating. Water-resistance is 100 meters. Screwed leather strap with stainless steel pin buckle or stainless steel strap with butterfly clasp.
