Muhle Glashutte Watch Robert Muhle Zeigerdatum Limited Edition Review
Thursday - 06 October 2016
Aptly named Robert Muhle, the stunning Limited Edition embodies the legacy of the brands founder. The masterpiece pays tribute to the 175th anniversary of his birth. His life work and dedication to watchmaking is at the heart of the subtly elegant piece that marks the revival of the date hand; a traditional feature that the sunray anthracite dial welcomes with open arms thrusting into a modern era. The sub dial is joined by the small seconds counter and the power reserve asking for symmetrical order. A design that is discreet, elegant and sophisticated etched in a beautiful silver to welcome a considered, thought provoking dial.
The commonly used date window is witnessed on many modern wristwatches introduced in 1945. However, the predecessor dates back to as early as 1793 when the complication was incorporated into a pocket watch. The feature is currently rarely used, which sparked the resurgence of the classic complication by Muhle Glashutte.
The Robert Muhle Zeigerdatum has successfully revived a classic, rare feature for a contemporary audience to enjoy. The grey dial is framed by a brushed/polished stainless steel case that certainly adds to the luxurious feel of the Limited Edition; a case that contrasts against the dial hue and compliments the markings beautifully. A transparent case back exposes the RMK 03, hand wound movement for a glimpse into Muhle Glashutte’s exceptional craftsmanship; a movement executed in-house by their expert team. The black crocodile leather strap finishes the timepiece beautifully.
Muhle Glashutte demonstrates their ability to master legibility and simplicity with the Robert Muhle Zeigerdatum. The exclusive timepiece takes a glance at the past yet quickly embraces the present wholeheartedly.
