German watch brand Mühle-Glashütte presents a limited edition 18 carat yellow gold version of the Teutonia IV Moonphase watch.
With a 41 diameter case, the perfectly dimensioned case of this precious Teutonia IV Moonphase watch contains an impressive total of 47 grams of fine gold.
As is typical of the Teutonia family, the middle of the case features a vertical finish applied carefully by hand. The top surfaces of the volute-shaped lugs, on the other hand, are finely polished and harmonise perfectly with the clear-cut design of the bezel.
The shining yellow gold case is complemented by its contrast with the matt black dial. Against the night sky inspired dial surface, applied and gold-plated indices sparkle like shooting stars, reflecting the case material just like the gold-plated lance-shaped hands.
With their perfectly coordinated length, these hands point the way to yet more gold: in the clearly marked minute graduation with gold-coloured second and minute numerals.
Mühle Watch with the Golden Moon
At the six o’clock position, the dazzling golden moon emerges from the depths of outer space as an eye-catching feature of the matt black face. Underneath the specially formed window on the face of the watch, a lunar disc with a diameter of around ten millimetres rotates, completing a full cycle in 59 days.
The golden moon appears not once but twice on the disc, which is therefore able to provide a day-by-day insight into its lunation from a new moon to a full moon and back to a new moon over a period of around 29.5 days.
This timepiece is powered by a reliable SW 280-1 Mühle version automatic movement, fitted with a shockproof woodpecker neck fine regulation, the matching balance cock and an efficient Mühle rotor.
Once its components have been carefully finished and assembled, the movement is put to the test in six different positions and set to achieve accuracy values of between 0 and a maximum of +8 seconds per day.
The Mühle-Glashütte Teutonia IV Moonphase GOLD watch is a limited edition of 100 pieces. Its estimated retail price is 11,800 Euros.
