More than 165 years ago the first master watchmakers settled in Glashütte/Saxony. Over the years, respect for tradition, infinite patience, and incomparable watchmaking expertise have enabled the town's noted watchmakers to achieve unparalleled success. There is no better expression of these time-honoured values than the Glashütte Original manufactory. The term refers to watchmaking firms that design and manufacture their own movements, and Glashütte Original's ability to do so places it squarely among the elite of the world's mechanical watchmakers.
The Glashütte Original manufactory brings the finest in watchmaking traditions together and combines them, under one roof, with the most advanced of contemporary materials and production technologies.
In-house design and manufacture of thousands of precision components ensure that each of our exquisite mechanical movements meets the highest possible standards of quality. Each is, after all, a work of art.
