The 29er Zeigerdatum is one of those watches which stands out by simplicity and obvious nautical design theme. But give it a little more attention and some clever details grab your attention, like the unusual display of the date.
The Mühle names goes back to the early 1300 and has always been a business related family with it’s roots in Germany. It was George Albert Mühle, who changed his name into Robert Mühle to honour his son who died, who started working as an apprentice precision toolmaker and lay the foundation for the company we know these days.
At first the company was well known for there highly accurate measuring machines. And they still produce components for their wristwatches that are accurate to the nearest thousandth of a millimetre. Of course these day with the help of some, state of the art CNC Machining centres. Around the 1918 the company also started producing speedometers for BMW and DKW (later became part of Audi).
1994 was the year the company started making marine time systems and marine chronometers. In 1996 the first wristwatch was made for a shipyard who asked for a number of robust water-resistant wristwatches for use on their ships. So their is no question about the nautical connection the Mühle company has with their watches.
The name of this model comes from a class of sailing dinghies used by young sailing talents in their competitions in the Junior Championship Class run by the German Sailing Association (DSV). Its obvious
