Mühle-Glashütte specialize in nautical instruments, and even their everyday watches reveal this influence. The 29er Zeigerdatum is named after a class of racing dinghies, and its colours and textile strap give it a distinctly nautical appearance. Instead of a date window, this model has the banker’s date layout, with a crescent-shaped hand. Hour and minute hands, and the hour markers, are coated in SuperLuminova.
The stainless steel case is 42.4 mm in diameter, 12.2 mm thick, and water-resistant to 10 atmospheres, 100 metres water. The textile strap has a steel pin buckle; the watch is also available with a stainless steel bracelet.
The movement is the self-winding Sellita SW 221-1, running at 28,800 vibrations per hour, 4 Hertz. Mühle-Glashütte works considerably on the movement, adding its own patented woodpecker-neck regulation, its own oscillating weight, and extra finish to the surfaces. The movement can be viewed through the display window in the caseback. The crown can be used to set the time, with stop-second function, and it has a fast date-change position. Power reserve is 38 hours.
The Mühle-Glashütte 29er Zeigerdatum costs €1,490 with textile strap, presumably about the same with stainless steel bracelet.
