Glashtte Original Watches
Glashtte Original watches are admired by collectors the world over, since Glashtte is one of very few watchmakers to craft its movements exclusively in the factory. In fact, the company has 10 proprietary innovations in movement.
Originally founded as "Glashtte" in 1845, the brand has survived time and the decline due to quartz. Following the German reunification in 1990 Glashtte reestablished itself and in 1994 Glashtte Original was formed; two years later unveiling its first watches.
In the year 2000, The Swatch Group purchased Glashtte, vowing to maintain its name.
Glashtte watches are warranted by Glashtte to the original purchaser to be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal use for two years from purchase date.
