Introducing the Mühle-Glashütte Teutonia Sport I
With Baselworld a month away, Mühle-Glashütte has quite recently unveiled one of their pre-show novelties—introducing the Mühle-Glashütte Teutonia Sport I. With the remainder of the Teutonia line defined by a more calm, classic esthetic, the new Teutonia Sport I brings a sporty boost to this mainstay series from the Glashütte-based brand. It’s a takeoff, without a doubt, yet an interesting one as Mühle continues to grow its family of precision chronographs.
Measuring 42.6mm with a thickness of 15.5mm, it’s sized like a contemporary sports chronograph. The stainless steel case includes a mix of brushed and polished surfaces finished off with a bi-directional bezel and a domed sapphire precious stone with anti-reflective coating. To drive home the automotive subject, the case highlights stopwatch-like pusher catches, with the beginning stop button at two boasting a red complement ring. The dial is dark and has applied indices and is lined by a red-on-dark tachymeter scale. The three sub-dials at 12, nine and six component light-dim lines, giving them some separation from the remainder of the dial. Right off four is a matching date window. The hands are bastard swords, filled with Super-LumiNova at the middle. Red intonations are carried over to the chronograph hands on the two totalizers at 12 and six and to the focal stop-second hand.
Powering the watch is Mühle’s MU 9413 automatic caliber, a rebadged Sellita SW 500 with quite a bit of modification by the brand. There’s a Glashütte three-quarter plate, a custom rotor, and the brand’s protected woodpecker neck regulation.
The Teutonia Sport I comes on a waterproof calfskin/elastic lash with a marked steel pin clasp. Pricing is at present unavailable, however we’ll update this space when it is. Mühle-Glashütte
