WatchPro had not planned a week of moonphase watch coverage in the run up to this month’s 50th anniversary of the first man on the moon, but few brands are missing the opportunity to plant their flags anywhere near the historic story, so the news keeps coming.
Today’s installment comes from Mühle Glashütte, which has given the name of its founder Robert Mühle to its contribution to the moonphase landscape.
The Robert Mühle Moonphase arrives in the German watchmaker’s 150th anniversary year, and is launched by the great, great, great grandson of the company’s founder, Thilo Mühle.
The watch uses an inhouse movement in a 42mm case made from either platinum, red gold or stainless steel.
It displays seconds on the same subdial as the moonphase, date at 9 o’clock and power reserve at 12 o’clock.
It is a limited edition of just 150 pieces, with the USA allocation managed by Duber Time.
There are 100 world-wide in steel, 25 in red gold and 25 in platinum.
They retail for $9,549 in steel, $20,749 in gold and $28,000 in platinum.
