The Teutonia III Handaufzug Kleine Sekunde by Mühle-Glashütte is a very classical men’s watch, with the fluted bezel, chemin de fer minute track and small seconds subdial that give it an unmistakable historical look. The enamel dial is made with five successive layers of lacquer, each carefully polished. The blued Breguet hands coordinate with the blue crocodile leather strap. The case is in stainless steel, 42 mm in diameter, 12.2 mm thick, with the characteristic Mühle-Glashütte vertically brushed finish and volute-shaped lugs with polished top surfaces. Water-resistance is 10 bar, 100 metres.
The caseback has a sapphire crystal window revealing the MU 9415 hand-wound movement, with the traditional Glashütte three-quarter plate with crown wheel and ratchet wheel in view. The balance has woodpecker-neck regulation. The three-quarter plate is finished with Glashütte stripes, and other traditional elements of finish, such as the blued screws and red bearing jewels, make the movement particularly attractive. The movement provides a 44-hour power reserve, and it has the stop-second function for precision time-setting, and fast date adjustment. The movement is just 25.6 mm in diameter and so the display crystal is rather small in comparison with the total case diameter. The MU 9415 is presumably extensively based on the ETA 2804-2 handwound calibre.
The Mühle-Glashütte Teutonia III Handaufzug Kleine Sekunde costs £2,000 in the version with leather strap, and £2,100 in the version with stainless steel bracelet.
