[Press Release] This chronograph represents a new addition to the Terrasport family by Mühle-Glashütte. It combines the timeless instrument look with the well-proven qualities of Mühle chronographs. The design itself is reminiscent of the classic Glashütte pilot’s watches of the first half of the 20th century.
As you would expect of a genuine pilot’s watch, the face of the Terrasport I chronograph incorporates plenty of contrasts and offers optimal legibility. The white minutes display stands out clearly against the black background while the three black totalizers for the small seconds display and the minutes and hours displays blend in seamlessly with the overall appearance. The impression is similar to that of a classic aeroplane cockpit – and this is no coincidence. The numerals cut-away by the totalizers at the 5, 7 and 9 o’clock positions reinforce the lively character of this timepiece. This is enhanced further by a red-tipped central chronograph hand and the corresponding red markers of the chronograph functions. The Terrasport I Chronograph guarantees optimal legibility by day and night, as is typical of Mühle watches, thanks to a white scale with red colour accents and Super-LumiNova-coated numerals and hands.
The 44mm brushed stainless steel case forms an unobtrusive frame for the eye-catching watch face. Inside, it is powered by a MU 9408 movement which already has a proven track record in various Mühle watches such as the S.A.R. pilot’s chronograph. The movement is characterised by a 48-hour power reserve and the typical Mühle refinements. The shock-proof fine regulation ensures the accuracy of the watch in all conditions.
The black buffalo leather strap with its white stitching harmonises with the predominant colour on the watch face design. Furthermore, the Terrasport I is also available with a cream-coloured face and brown buffalo leather strap.
