For whatever reason,Â MÃ¼hle GlashÃ¼tte is a brand that slips off of my radar. Â Which is crazy, because every time I’ve had one in for review I’ve come away mightily impressed. Â While those prior hands-on experiences had me encountering things I enjoyed as I wore the watch, theÂ MÃ¼hle GlashÃ¼tte ProMare Go was a winner – for me – right from opening the box.
As long-time readers will attest, my favorite color is blue. Â And I think the only way for theÂ MÃ¼hle GlashÃ¼tte ProMare Go to get any more blue would be on the strap, or perhaps some sort of coating on the case. Â Not that I’m saying they should, there’s a righteously good amount of blue on this already. Â Obviously, you have it on the two-tone bezel (different hues of blue) and on the contrast stitching Â on the strap. Â The dial has a few shades of blue awaiting your eyes as well.
Most noticeably, it’s on the wide, glossy expanse of the dial. Â This is a deep, inky blue that almost verges on black. Â Then, you’ve got the color-matched date wheel, which is a slightly different shade. Â Finally, you’ve got a lighter blue ring on the outer edge, where the dial meets the case. Â Â Oh, yeah, and on the tip of the seconds hand! Â So, if you’re like me, and can’t get enough blue, then this is a watch for you.
Now, with all of that blue – primarily in darker tones – legibility might be a concern. Â Well, maybe on other watches. You see, the indices and hands of theÂ MÃ¼hle GlashÃ¼tte ProMare Go have a super high polish to them. Â Even in low light, they catch the rays and reflect them right back out, making picking out the time a snap. Â Drop the lights, and then the SuperLuminova kicks in, again allowing you to tell the time.
Now, as far as dive watches go, I suppose the dark tones of theÂ MÃ¼hle GlashÃ¼tte ProMare Go aren’t going to be the most helpful for underwater visibility. Â Then again, it’s not technically a diver, as the bezel is bi-directional. Â However, if you’re going to try it, you’ve got a 30 BAR water resistance rating to help you out. Â For us desk divers, it’s just a good looking piece. Â The 42mm steel case alternating brushed and polished surfaces, and at only 12.3mm thick, this is a watch that will go with you anywhere. Â I even managed to pair it up with a suit and it worked quite well.
Which is odd, when you consider that the strap is primarily rubber. Â The specs list it as a combo leather/rubber, but the upper surface has more of a sailcloth feel to it. Â Regardless, it doesn’t look like rubber, and has a rather nice feel. Â The reverse side of the strap, just check that out. Â With all the notches and grooves, you’ve got a double benefit. Â First up, it helps the strap to be super flexible, and secondly, it allows for a lot of airflow under it. Â I know, I’m wearing it in winter, but this should help keep sweat reduced some in warmer temps.
I found theÂ MÃ¼hle GlashÃ¼tte ProMare Go to be eminently wearable. Â With only a 94g weight (that’s pretty light for a steely automatic) and a 50mm lug-to-lug measurement, it fit my wrist just well, and was a perfect everyday companion. Â Sure, it’s a little odd to have that flieger-style dotted triangle up at 12 o’clock, but it’s more of an identifiable quirk for the piece, and yes, I did like it. Â At the end of the day, there’s just an awful lot to like about theÂ $2,100Â MÃ¼hle GlashÃ¼tte ProMare Go. Â Color me impressed – and blue! Â muehle-glashuette.de
