Before the Summer Holidays, the Dubai Watch Week Team invited us for a Watchmaking Tour in Saxony, Germany, close to the City of Dresden.
We had the opportunity to discover and visit the "German Watch Museum" in Glashütte.
The German Watch Museum Glashütte is an institution that not only presents the compelling history of watchmaking across more than 170 years but it also highlights the artistic aspects of the watchmaker’s craft by bringing time to life. At Glashütte, it all began with Ferdinand Adolph Lange in 1845. Today, they proudly present the development that was achieved since. From pocket watches, wristwatches and pendulum clocks to marine chronometers, modified workbenches and many more micromechanical products. Furthermore, the exhibition at Glashütte pays homage to the historic German Watchmaking School that once stood in the same building, founded in 1878 by Moritz Grossmann. Several written and printed documents as well as certificates and student assignments bear witness to the school’s significance and role in the world of watchmaking that we know today.
