Glashütte Original is not as familiar a name with the public, perhaps because the company was locked behind the Iron Curtain for almost 50 years. However, the reunification of Germany shined a light on the manufacturer and allowed it to achieve its full potential: today the company's timepieces are known for extreme precision and proprietary movement innovations. Glashütte Original watches invoke a delightfully traditional theme that celebrates the most cherished conventions of fine timepiece design, yet also manage to charm and awe with a commitment to exquisite artistry. Ultra-fine work can be found on dials and in the details, which require intensive attention from a team of committed artisans. Glashütte Original is one of the very few non-native manufacturers able to effortlessly keep pace with the Swiss.
