The observation watches from Glashütte were distinguished by two dial variants. The first, like the Terrasport I, featured large hour numerals with a minute scale on the outer edge of the dial. The second variant featured a small inner hour circle and a separate outer minute track, which allowed the navigator to take time quickly. The Terrasport I Beobachter is based on this design.

 

DETAILED

COLOR RED

In the Terrasport, classic Mühle virtues meet finely tuned design accents: The red-marked second hand with its corresponding red marker at 12 is just one example.

 

RICH IN CONTRAST

READABILITY

The dials of the Terrasport have a high-contrast design and are designed for the best possible readability. Luminescent hands and hour markers ensure that the time is clearly visible even at night.

 

UNIQUE

USAGE

Observation watches were an integral part of aviators' equipment. On-board navigators used them in conjunction with an octant to determine their position during flight.

 

HISTORIC

SIZE

Large case diameter for best readability: With a diameter of 44 millimeters, the brushed stainless steel case clearly refers to the size of its models, which often measure 55 millimeters.

 

HISTORIC

MODEL

For the classic "Nav.B" watches, there were two designs: One was characterized by large hour numerals on the dial edge, like the Terrasport I, and one had a small hour circle with separate minute track inside, like the Terrasport I Beobachter.
