The roots of Glashütte Original reach back to 1845, the year in which the first master watchmakers settled in Glashütte. They realised their dream of an independent Saxon watchmaking industry. As a direct descendent of their art, today Glashütte Original carries their vision forth into the 21st century.
Glashütte Original embodies innovative German watchmaking art that meets the highest standards of quality.
In our manufactory the watchmakers' traditional craft skills encounter state-of-the-art production technologies. Passion, the delicate touch of a practised hand and impressive in-house production depth come together to create exclusive timepieces of extreme precision and timeless elegance.
The brilliant horological achievements of the manufactory reveal themselves in the characteristic design elements of a Glashutte Original watch, visible through the sapphire crystal case back. The fine decoration of the component movements, lavishly finished by hand, is a natural obligation to our high quality standards – in the tradition of the old masters.
