Muhle Glashutte Panova Red Watch Review

Muhle Glashutte Panova Red Watch Review

Although they may not be as notable as German watch brands like NOMOS and Lange, Muhle Glashutte deliver some great value timepieces on both ends of the price spectrum. Their Panova watch in particular is deserving of so much more attention that it gets, delivering a simple time-only display with tons of minimalist charm and an easy-wearing wrist feel. For 2021, the brand extend the Panova collection with a new, bold red face. Meet the Muhle Glashutte Panova Red watch.

With the Muhle Glashutte Panova, the brand conveys the perfect everyday wristwatch suitable for professional, casual and nights-on-the-town settings. They are designed to be simple, understated with eye-catching colour palettes, instantly legible dials and sleek stainless steel cases. Over the years, the German manufacturer has unveiled the Panova in several colourways including blue, green and grey dial designs. For the summer of 2021, the DNA is replicated once again but with a bold red centrepiece. Looking at the increasing numbers of red-dialled watches hitting the market, (take the new Bell & Ross Red Radar or the Breitling Endurance Pro Ironman for example), we have no doubt that the contemporary ruby shade of the new Muhle Glashutte Panova Red watch will be coveted by those looking for a colourful new accessory for their collection. 

The best thing about the Panova for me is its versatility. Thanks to its perfect watch-life balance, it is the optimal entry-level watch. The many interchangeable straps make it the perfect lifestyle and vacation watch. Finally, it is suitable as a robust everyday and sports watch due to its shockproof movement and robust case. What more could you ask for!” Dustin Mühle, 6th generation of the family business Mühle-Glashütte

The Muhle Glashutte Panova Red watch is a real eye-catcher. At the centre, its fine-grained dial makes its “basic” red tone appear brighter or darker depending on the angle of light that catches it. Around the edge, raised hour indices are coated in luminous coating to enable perfect readability during both the day and night. At the centre, the Muhle Glashutte Panova Red delivers two classic hands for hours and minutes also treated in luminous coating and a sleek, black seconds hand.

Powering the simple three-hand display is the proven SW 200-1 automatic winding calibre. The movement has been modified by Muhle Glashutte to include a shock proof woodpecker neck regulation that regulates an accuracy of between 0 to +8 seconds per day. The calibre guarantees a power reserve of 38 hours and is kept hidden behind a screw down case back water resistant to 100 metres. Like the case back, the rest of the case is engineered from stainless steel and sits on the wrist at 40 millimetres in diameter and 10.4 millimetres in height. The Muhle Glashutte Panova Red watch also features a screw in crown and scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass treated with a layer of anti-reflective coating.

Like so many of the pieces in the Muhle Glashutte Panova collection, the new red edition is fitted with super-easy interchangeable strap system. You can wear the Muhle Glashutte Panova watch on a number of different bands including a sophisticated black calfskin leather strap, a tan brown calfskin leather strap or a sporty textile strap, all of which come fitted with a classic stainless steel pin buckle.
