Since its introduction, the Terrasport collection from Mühle Glashütte has been the firm’s take on the ubiquitous pilot watch, with designs that pull from a familiar template but don’t exactly feel like a “me too” addition to the popular, yet undeniably crowded, category. The aesthetic offered by the Terrasport line is a bit more modern than interpretations that skew classic–like the ones we see from brands Stowa and Laco, but more restrained than what brands like IWC have offered in recent years. Even within Mühle’s current catalogue of sport watches, the Terrasport collection feels reserved and to-the-point.
There have been a number of models within the Terrasport range. The Terrasport I was a 44mm, three-handed automatic with date available in several variants, among them a B-dial design and a chronograph. The Terrasport II took that formula and scaled it down to a 40mm case. The Terrasport III went even smaller, bringing the watch down to a diminutive 34mm. Now, Mühle is expanding the Terrasport collection by adding a new complication in the form of the Terrasport IV GMT.
