    Glashütte Original

    German Watchmaking Art since 1845

Our historic legacy

Glashütte Original’s roots run deep. When the first master watchmakers established themselves in Glashütte more than 175 years ago, they were fulfilling their dream of having an independent Saxon watch industry. As the legitimate successor of these founding fathers, Glashütte Original today preserves their artistry, and takes their visions into the 21st century.

Our roots

A culture of excellence & creativity

Our work is driven by high standards. Clearly defined values play a major role here, serving us as guidelines and motivation on a daily basis.

Our brand values


At Glashütte Original we feel closely affiliated with the fine arts and the local region – after all, we share a sense of beauty, creativity and a quest for perfection.

In doing so, we take up Saxony’s centuries-old tradition as a centre for the arts and culture. As a long-standing partner of the renowned Dresden Music Festival we support young talents and dedicated artists.
