Introducing the Mühle Glashütte Terrasport IV GMT

Share this story:

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.

The Terrasport IV GMT comes in a 42mm brushed, stainless steel case rated to 10ATM and features a black, easy-to-read dial that nails many of its details. At its core is a classic flieger layout—an Arabic hours track with a triangle at 12 paired with sharp sword hands. Moving away from tradition, red accents bring attention to the 12 o’clock position and the GMT hand—a long, red-tipped arrow pointing toward a 24-hour track on the dial’s chapter ring. Placing the GMT function so far out keeps the dial devoid of extra markings that would otherwise clutter the clean aesthetic. I also appreciate the matching date wheel (white text on black background) at three, though the aperture would look better positioned closer to the marker. Sitting atop the dial is a sapphire crystal with double-sided AR. Overall, I really like the look of the watch. The way the design comes together, the Terrasport IV GMT looks a bit dressier than what one might expect, but that just comes with the added benefit of making the package all the more versatile.

The Mühle Glashütte Terrasport IV GMT comes on either a five-link stainless steel bracelet or a leather band.

Powering the Terrasport IV GMT is the Sellita SW 330-1 movement, a clone of the ETA 2893-2. Mühle, of course, modifies this base caliber with a handful of in-house developments, among them Mühle’s famous woodpecker neck regulator, a new rotor, and custom finishing.


The new Terrasport IV GMT will retail for €2,100.00 (approx. $2,320) on leather, and €2,200 (approx. $2,430) on steel bracelet. For more information, visit Mühle Glashütte.
