Mühle-Glashütte develops and manufactures high-quality ships' timepieces, marine chronometers and mechanical wristwatches. In this the Glashütte company places great emphasis on the excellent legibility and accuracy of its timepieces. Because the name Mühle has long stood for precision and precise measurement. The foundation stone for this was laid by Robert Mühle. In 1869 he founded a family-run company in Glashütte to produce precise measurement instruments for the local watch industry. The direction followed by the present-day company emerged under the management of the fourth generation of the family. Since 1994 it has gone by the name of Mühle-Glashütte nautische Instrumente und Feinmechanik, equipping cruise ships of the AIDA fleet and luxury yachts with marine time systems and chronometers. The fact that the nautical characteristics required in this, namely precision, legibility and reliability, are also reflected in the Mühle wristwatches is particularly important to Thilo Mühle. With him the family-run company now has its fifth generation at the helm.
