Precise Measurement Since 1869

Nautische Instrumente Mühle-Glashütte is now the only watch manufacturer in the German town of Glashütte that is still owned by a long-established local family. Their family has been based in the Glashütte region for more than 700 years and has been working in the town’s watchmaking industry over a total of five generations without interruption. The family company was founded by Robert Mühle in 1869.

He initially produced highly precise measuring instruments for the watch manufacturers in Glashütte then went on to also make speedometers and rev counters. The company’s current focus emerged under the management of the fourth generation of the Mühle family: the production of high-quality wristwatches, marine time systems and other nautical instruments. Although the type of measuring instruments manufactured by our company has changed over the last 149 years, we are proud to declare that the name “Mühle” has now represented precision and precise measurement in Glashütte for five generations.
