With a rich history of more than 170 years of tradition and incomparable expertise, Glashütte Original is an homage to the finest in watchmaking.
Thanks to the skills and the infinite patience of its talented craftsmen, the manufactory has achieved unparalleled success in designing and creating their own watch movements and dials. Even the simplest Glashütte Original timepieces require several hours to assemble.
More elaborate movements, with complications such as chronographs or tourbillons can take considerably longer and can involve as many as twenty working days. Glashütte Original has always felt an inherent responsibility to pass on its specialised knowledge.
For that reason, in 2002 the brand established the “Alfred Helwig” School of Watchmaking which is known to be one of the best training schools in the industry. The expertise in watch- and toolmaking is passed on from one generation to the next generation with great pride – just like their fine watches.
