In our earlier post on a Graham model with a very stopwatch feel, one of our readers noted that it felt very similar to a Muhle Glashuette model and I have to agree. Their S.A.R. Flieger-Chronograph has some very similar (and similarly intriguing) features.
The most obvious similarity, of course, is the large lever-style pusher on the left-hand side of the case. As with the Graham, I can quite easily imagine this as a natural stopwatch action when held in your right hand. Past that, we’re just getting to incidental comparisons, so we’ll focus on this watch on it’s own merits now.
Inside the case you have an in-house automatic movement, the MU 9408. This offers up a 48 power reserve, hacking seconds, and characteristic finishing. This is all housed in 44mm stainless case, which itself holds on to the unidirectional bezel and the domed (and AR-coated) sapphire crystal.
This is all held in place on either a rubber strap or stainless bracelet, which themselves rely on screwed-in attachment points. And last, but not least, we have the ever-present Super Luminova applied to the hands and indices.
At $4,000, it’s not a watch that I’m likely to be adding to my own collection. It was worth bringing to your attention, though, given it’s similarities (and significant price reduction) when compared to the afore-mentioned Graham.
Thanks to Dan Paulson for pointing out the similarities!
