The Union Glashütte brand has been dedicated to fine watchmaking since its beginnings over 120 years ago, and this remains true today. It has its roots in the small town of Glashütte in Saxony, a town with a rich tradition as the centre of German watchmaking. These origins, together with the "Made in Germany" seal, guarantee a level of quality that sets standards. At Union Glashütte, finest workmanship and bold design meet modern technologies and innovative ideas.
The renowned watch seller Johannes Dürrstein laid the foundation for this brand at the end of the 19th century. As a successful businessman with expert knowledge of international watchmaking, he knew exactly what was missing from the market: a sophisticated watch with Glashütte quality at a price that wouldn't restrict it to just a limited few – a piece of affordable luxury. With this concept, he founded his own watchmaking company in 1893, the "Glashütter Uhrenfabrik Union". His aspiration to create watches "that have everything to make them accurate and beautiful, but nothing to make them expensive" remains just as valid today.
High-quality workmanship, mechanical expertise and a timelessly beautiful appearance distinguish Union Glashütte timepieces as modern representatives of their historical predecessors. Each watch is produced with a great deal of care and effort, and each movement is individually fitted, regulated and checked by hand. From pure elegance to dynamic sportiness, from classic retro character to desirable feminine accessory, the Union Glashütte collection offers models for every style and occasion. For all watch enthusiasts who know what really matters: time for the finer things in life.
