The "Glashütte Original" brand is known far beyond the borders of Saxony, as the company has stood for quality and precision in timepieces for over 170 years. To this day, every single one of Glashütte Original's luxurious watches is traditionally assembled, checked, engraved, ground and refined by hand. This does not only include the movements. Even filigree individual parts such as hands, dials or the sometimes lavishly designed cases are manufactured in our own factories. And even if it takes a lot of time until a watch is finished in this way, Glashütte Original's ladies' and men's wristwatches are always timeless.

The beginnings of the watch manufactory in Glashütte

The origins of the traditional Glashütte Original company date back to 1845, when Ferdinand Adolph Lange founded the first local watch manufactory. After the collapse of silver mining, which had so far fed numerous families in the region, the state government granted Lange a loan. With this he trained the first watchmakers. In the 1850s, other master watchmakers joined the company, whose experience and enthusiasm led to the creation of many watches that were sought after for their precision. Around 1865, for example, the precision pocket watch came onto the market, which enjoyed constant popularity for almost 80 years. Due to the great demand for watches from Glashütte, the German Watchmaking School Glashütte opened its doors in May 1878, which quickly gained great prestige among experts.

The proof of quality and origin: Glashütte Original

While the watchmaker Karl W. Höhnel already in 1916 provided a pendulum clock from his hand with the lettering "Glashütte Original", this designation was also used as proof of origin for watches from the Deutsche Präzisionsuhrenfabrik Glashütte GmbH from 1918 at the latest. Since 1921, this logo has also been used on the manufactory's pocket watches, since it served both as a trademark and a seal of quality. From around 1927, the ladies' wristwatches also bore this inscription.

Stylish classics from Glashütte Original: Senator, Pano & Co.

In the 1960s and 1970s, men's and women's wristwatches from Glashütte were particularly in demand. For example, the main focus during manufacture was on the shock resistance of the case, accuracy and date and second display. In the meantime, however, Glashütte watches have advanced to become the world-renowned luxury brand "Made in Germany". In addition to the classic displays of hours, minutes, seconds and date, the mechanical movements have been extended by additional functions such as power reserve display or moon phases. Some models also have a perpetual calendar showing month, day of the week, leap year and day and night. The "Perpetual Calendar" watch from the Senator series even received the title "Watch of the Year" in 2000.

When technology becomes art: Watches from Glashütte Original

The watch models from Glashütte Original impress not only with their timeless design, precision and functionality. Then as now, they are true masterpieces of the highest engineering art, combining technology and precious materials to form a synthesis of the arts. For example, the watches from the Pano-Inverse series reveal their inner beauty to the observer. They present their heart in the form of balance and gooseneck fine adjustment on the dial, which is brilliantly stripe-cut. Blued hands and screws, artistic engravings and rubies as bearing jewels complete these technical works of art, as does the central rotor, which can be admired through the sapphire crystal back and is provided with a 21-carat gold oscillating weight (e.g. reference 90-02-42-32-05).
