Mühle-Glashütte made its first ever 29er back in 2006 and named it after a small sailing dinghy. Now they have decided to bring the watch back and reduce its depth – with a height of just 9.35 millimetres, this is the flattest case in the current Mühle collection.
The 29er watch models manufactured by Nautische Instrumente Mühle-Glashütte got their name from a small sailing dinghy used by young sailing talents in their Junior Championship Class competitions run by the German Sailing Association (DSV).
With its straightforward yet striking design, the case of the 29er has been one of the most stunning outfits in the wardrobe of Mühle movements ever since 2006. Its defining and, indeed, most charming quality is its combination of contrasting surface finishes, with the bezel alone featuring both a brushed top surface and finely polished sides.
The middle section of the case has a vertical finish and is stunningly framed by the bezel and the screwed-on back, the sides of which are also perfectly polished. This alternation between shiny and matt surfaces creates an array of different light reflections, just like the sun sparkling in the waves, and makes the case of the 29er a true eye-catcher.
