Mühle-Glashütte Antaria Tag/Datum Definitely Stands Out
A Star is Born! This is no exaggeration in the case of the Antaria Tag/Datum (day/date) watch. Because this new timepiece not only expands our watch line named after the star Antares – it also exhibits genuine star qualities. The striking elements at first glance are the elegant faces in the colours of opaline silver or anthracite with red gold. The latter also includes a precious bi-colour case, featuring a polished and red gold-plated bezel.
Despite all its elegance and beauty, the fact that the Antaria Tag/Datum is a star, but never a diva, can be seen in everyday use. This slender case discreetly hugs the wrist and the reliable movement uncomplainingly performs its duty with precision: 86,400 seconds a day, seven days a week, 52 weeks a year.
This Mühle watch is a paragon of simplicity in every way except for its various intricate displays. Because in addition to an hour, minute, and second hand, it has two additional functions – referred to by watchmakers as complications: the display of the date and day of the week.
