The history of Glashütte Original dates back to 1845. The first watchmakers arrived in Glashütte, Saxony, more than 175 years ago to begin producing watches and watch parts in the little town. The Glashütte watch quickly rose to prominence as a global symbol of excellence. Drawing from this lineage of exacting, refined workmanship, Glashütte Original is carrying on this legacy of unbroken German watchmaking to this day.
