The ProMare range by Mühle-Glashütte is an interesting combination of non-specific sporty looks and a 300-metre water resistance that is one of the principal characteristics of a diver’s watch. This Mühle-Glashütte ProMare Chronograph has the trendy black and orange colour scheme that is strongly present on the market today (as in IWC’s Santoni straps) and an unusual appearance created by the orange highlights on the black carbon dial, the small subdials, and curiously a pilot’s watch emblem at the 12 o’clock position. Hands and hour indices are coated with SuperLuminova. The chronograph pushers are very large so that they can be operated by users wearing gloves. The screw-in crown has a protector, and the strap is in waterproof leather-rubber. A stainless steel bracelet is also available.
The case is in stainless steel, 44 mm in diameter and 15.4 mm thick, water-resistant to 30 bars/300 metres. Inside, the MU 9408 self-winding movement provides 48 hours of power reserve. Precision setting is made possible by the stop-second function; the date can be corrected by means of a recessed pusher at 10 o’clock.
Mühle-Glashütte has given its own movement designation only to this, the MU 9408, and the hand-wound MU 9411, movements- Even though it is based on the ETA Valjoux 7750 chronograph movement, it has been extensively modified, with their patented woodpecker neck regulator. The movement is finely finished, with Glashütte stripes on the three-quarter plate and other types of finish on other surfaces.
The Mühle-Glashütte ProMare Chronograph, reference M1-42-04-NB, costs €3,600.
