Mühle-Glashütte 29er Zeigerdatum

Arizona Fine Time is proud to offer the Mühle-Glashütte 29er Zeigerdatum, an intriguing new release which roughly translates to “pointer date”.  “A day at the sea, even at your desk” is what Mühle boasts with this enthralling new piece. Much like their marine chronometer, and timing systems, Mühle-Glashütte wristwatches are measuring instruments, with three core goals when designing a piece: Precision, reliability, and perfect readability.  This humble boutique German brand started in 1869, quickly becoming one of the leading manufacturers of nautical instruments, and later expanding to other measuring devices like speedometers used by Maybach, and BMW. The sailing 29er style found in this model pays homage to the brands rich heritage.

At first glance, you notice the soft blue-grey flange of the inner bezel displaying the date, and a striking cardinal red second hand housed in this classic rugged 42 mm case.  The motor itself is powered by a signature Mühle movement, a modified Sellita SW 221-1 with a 38 hour power reserve, and is water resistant to 100 meters.  Mühle-Glashütte takes the SW 221-1 movement, and adds their own woodpecker neck regulation developed in 2003 in order to ensure accuracy in even the toughest conditions and enviroments.  The woodpecker neck spring is designed to prevent the regulator arm from being able to move upwards by slotting into a semicircular depression in the regulator, making this piece almost completely shock proof, a resourceful feature regarded as very unique in the world of automatic watches.

The case is a combination of brushed and polished German Stainless Steel, and has an anti-glare coated sapphire crystal.  Fitted with a stainless steel strap, and butterfly clasp, this piece also comes with an alternative blue textile band that gives the Zeigerdatum a completely separate appearance, and in a way, presenting itself as a completely separate timepiece altogether.

The 29er Zeigerdatum is priced at an affordable $2199.00, making it challenging to  find another brand that can match the unique fit and finish that Mühle offers at this price point.

Tutima M2 Pioneer Video Review

Uncompromising functionality and absolute reliability are the basic principles of a professional timing instrument. The NATO chronograph by Tutima, developed in 1984 and the official service watch of the German army’s pilots to this day, has outstandingly proven itself in global use for decades. Now the M2 arrives to continue this classic timepiece’s success story. We have made several improvements that will not only profit professional users but also sporty, active amateurs.

Nothing can rattle it.
Good legibility, reliable functionality, high comfort level and water resistance, a large sweep minute counter, pressure-resistant for use to 15,000 meters above sea level, and shockproofed for blows, vibrations, and acceleration up to 7 g in all directions: these are the enormous prerequisites that the procurement office and forces alike put upon the Tutima NATO chronograph in 1984.

Our reedition, the M2, even surpasses these prerequisites. In the classic from 1984, Swiss caliber Lémania 5100 kept the time. Since this is no longer in production, we have integrated our own caliber Tutima 521 into the M2. It is protected by a pure titanium case pressure-proofed to 30 atm including a strong sapphire crystal coated with anti-reflective treatment on both sides and an additional casing of mu-metal. This nickel-iron alloy binds magnetic field streams so that they do not even reach the movement. The integrated push buttons are furnished with grooved neoprene inlays.

The hour counter has its own scale. The less often consulted display of running seconds and 24 hours modestly step out of the limelight. The time and chronograph hands as well as the hour markers are coated with luminous Super-LumiNova. This ensures good legibility, even under adverse lighting conditions. The Pioneer model variation additionally contains a nonslip rotating bezel with 14 luminous capsules so that set time intervals are easily recognizable even in full darkness.

This model comes on a titanium link bracelet with folding clasp. The box that the M2 titanium bracelet model is delivered in additionally contains a Kevlar weave strap as well as a tool set for changing the strap.
