Mühle-Glashütte Terrasport IV Bronze

Post by koimaster » March 24th 2020, 7:00pm

In late 2019, Mühle-Glashütte celebrated its’ 150th anniversary with release of limited edition pilot watch in collaboration with the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (a watch that we reported on here). In February 2020, before COVID-19 virus cancelled all the watch shows, Mühle presented the latest pilot watches in Terrasport series at Inhorgenta show in Munich. The limited edition Terrasport IV pilot watch in bronze case with two dial variations – mocha and khaki color dials.


Just about every watch company offering a pilot watch has experimented with bronze alloy in the last two years – IWC, Oris, Stowa, Archimede, Zenith, Hanhart, Bell & Ross, and many more. However, each watch company has made their own variation of bronze color, oxidation/no oxidation, and interesting dial colors to complement the warm tone of the bronze case. Mühle opted for the bronze case with oxidation and a contemporary mocha and khaki dials. Mocha dial offers more of button-up appeal and makes for a desk-pilot, whereas khaki dial transforms it into a casual tool watch. A traditional approach is employed for bronze alloy on bezel, case-sides, and the crown. The display case back, on the other hand, is made from stainless steel to avoid adverse reaction to copper in the alloy.

Looks not half bad. But I still don’t like bronze as a case material.
I always hope for the best. Experience, unfortunately, has taught me to expect the worst.
