Glashütte Original – The Brand
Glashütte Original is a world-renowned brand representing the highest standards of quality and timeless elegance. As an authentic manufactory operating in the prestige segment of the market, it unites German watchmaking tradition and modern manufacturing methods under one roof. The company manufactures in-house up to 95 percent of all the components that go into a watch, including the elaborate dials. Timepieces from Glashütte Original are the product of the best in German engineering and craftsmanship and embody a successful synthesis of technical sophistication, reliable precision and functional design.
A Dynamic Watchmaking Tradition
Glashütte Original is the modern representative of a dynamic watchmaking tradition dating back to the year 1845. Thanks to extreme production depth our timepieces are designed and manufactured almost entirely on our own premises – with dedication, a spirit of innovation and the experienced hands of our watchmakers.

Glashütte Original watches testify to their origins, combining clear design, precious materials and sophisticated technology with a robustness that makes them perfectly suited to everyday use. The term “manufactory” refers to this high proportion of authentic craft labour. However, it also characterises a company that is able to create and manufacture watches independently. Thus the glass walls of the manufactory building in Glashütte enclose the ongoing effort to explore the limits of what is possible in the modern art of watchmaking.
The origin of a Glashütte Original can be read in many details – in its classic elegant design and robust workmanship, but also in traditional elements such as the classic Glashütte three-quarter plate or the striking screw balance with swan neck fine adjustment, manufactured with great care in Glashütte.

Sixties Annual Edition – Cool Retro Chic in Stylish Green
It’s tempting, is it not? To recall the days when one could take his own sweet time to choose and enjoy a thing of beauty. The 1960s have inspired this year’s annual edition – two dazzling, desirable additions to the Sixties Collection from Glashütte Original: the new Sixties and Sixties Panorama Date, with stunning green dégradé dials crafted in the watchmaker’s own dial manufactory, which will only be available for a limited period of one year.
