World of experience & production site
The Glashütte Original manufactory in the heart of Glashütte is bright, open and modern. It is here that our timepieces are designed and, thanks to our exceptional production depth, made from components produced almost entirely in-house. We are pleased to invite you behind the scenes for a closer look at how we make watches.
The modern, generously laid out manufactory building houses both a 10,000 square meter production site and a fascinating world of experience at the same time. With its clean lines and transparent materials the functional architecture mirrors the high standards implicit in the statement "Made in Germany". The various ateliers, workshops and departments responsible for production and final assembly are situated on four floors and linked by corridors.
Glashütte Original upholds a tradition in which hand-crafted perfection and select materials are combined with state-of-the-art production technologies. As an independent developer and watchmaker with exceptional depth of production we have good reason to be known as a "manufactory". It is a far-reaching term: In the process of making watches here, a great many decisive steps are still performed by hand, "per manum". Thus the secret of our refined timepieces lies in the diligent and dextrous fingers of the watchmakers, who make of each model a true original.
