Mühle-Glashütte Robert Muehle Moon Phase Steel
Robert Muehle Moon Phase
Muehle-Glashuette has been devoted to achieving precision measurement for over 150 years. In celebration of this long tradition, the manufacturing workshop, based in the German watchmaking town of Glashuette, has developed a special collection of luxury timepieces with unique movements, stunning cases and beautiful finishes that showcases Muehle’s skill and expertise in the field of watchmaking.
The R. Muehle & Sohn collection comprises very special limited edition pieces that incorporate the highest level of workmanship and expert attention to detail for which Muehle is renowned.
The Moon Phase Collection includes three models: platinum with blue dial, red gold with white dial and polished stainless steel with silver dial. Each model is unique and limited to 25 pieces (platinum & gold models) or 100 pieces (steel model).
In line with Muehle’s philosophy of precision timing, the moon phase display of the “RMK 04” Robert Muehle calibre is so precise that an impressive 122 years must pass before it deviates from the actual position of the moon by even a day.
Each timepiece within the collection is elegant and collectable within its own right, assuring functionality as well as good form.
The moon phase display is produced using an anodised aluminium plate onto which the intricate details of the moon are laser engraved. As an important component of the new moon phase module, this plate is firmly attached to the movement itself. Above it, a moon shadow plate slowly revolves, using its two small cover discs to depict the current appearance of the moon. In the case of a new moon, one of the discs is positioned directly above the moon on the display to completely cover it. When there’s a full moon, the two cover discs move into a horizontal position and leave Earth’s closest neighbour clear for all to see.
