Mühle Glashütte Watches Awarded to Olympians

 

Three Olympic medallists from Dresden, Germany, have been congratulated on their success at London 2012 with a Mühle Glashütte watch.

Rowers Tim Grohmann and Karl Schulze earned the gold medal in men's quadruple sculls at the London 2012 Olympic Games, while equestrian Steffen Zeibig secured a silver medal in the team event at the Paralympics.

Dresden's Mayoress Helma Orosz paid tribute to the athletes and presented each of them with a Mühle Glashütte Rasmus watch. The Olympic medallists were also given a special tour of the company, to learn more about where their watches were manufactured. "During their visit, the athletes not only found out more about the internal mechanics of their chronographs, they also learned first-hand about the company's history and nautical beginnings," the brand said.
The Mühle Glashütte Rasmus is a professional divers' watch from a previous collection. It was developed in collaboration with the German national apnea diving team, who dive down to 150 metres without underwater breathing apparatus. The timepiece has an easy-to-read dial with intensely luminous hands, numbers and indices, and a luminous point on the unidirectional bezel to show remaining diving time.
