When Johannes Dürrstein founded the "Glashütter Uhrenfabrik Union" in 1893, he laid the foundation for an impressive story of success. In 2018, Union Glashütte celebrated this anniversary with different events and special promotions. At the beginning of the year, the German Watch Museum in Glashütte offered visitors an insight into the company's history with the special thematic exhibition "Union Glashütte – 125 Jahre Deutsche Uhrmacherkunst" (Union Glashütte – 125 years of German watchmaking). Celebrations weren't limited to Glashütte, either: throughout the year, special decorations and commemorative road shows were set up at different points of sale. In addition, the renowned Chronos publication dedicated a special edition to the anniversary, presenting detailed information about the brand, its models and its history.
