For 165 years, the name “Glashütte” has been a synonym for high-quality watchmaking, German precision, and exquisite design. Since the foundation by F.A. Lange of the first watchmaking company in the German town of Glashütte in 1845, Glashütte Original has always known how to meet its customers’ demands for high precision and outstanding quality. Glashütte Original continues to pursue this tradition today, creating mechanical masterpieces in accordance with the rigorous standards of the Saxon art of watchmaking. The characteristics of the classic Glashütte Original design transform each mechanical movement into a miniature masterpiece epitomizing the German values of quality, precision and reliability. The Glashütte Original watchmaking company is one of the oldest in Germany to have always made its own models, attaching great importance to human skill and expertise. While traditional methods have survived throughout the centuries, the brand also makes use of leading-edge technology in many ways, for example in manufacturing components and carrying out quality testing.
