PASSION AND CARE
The long list of stringent requirements that proudly fuel every facet of production behind the UNION GLASHÜTTE brand name is clear. From sheer elegance to dynamic sportiness, from classic retro to feminine styling or decorative influences – our collection provides a wide range of different watches for every style or occasion, which attest to their finest origins. The watchmakers at Glashütte in Saxony carefully work through an intensive series of stages to assemble, finish and calibrate each individual model.
The component production stage involves the design and manufacturing of all the individual components and decorations that give the UNION GLASHÜTTE mechanical movements their unique character, including finely decorated rotors, balance cocks and automatic and gear train bridges. The experienced part-production team combines classic craftsmanship with the latest in modern technology. Traditional finishing elements such as perlage and the Glashütte stripe finish are applied with a keen eye and exceptional skill.
Building on the work of the component production team, movement assembly is where the mechanical hearts of our timepieces are brought to life. At this stage, the numerous filigree components that make up the various automatic movements are brought together for the first time. They are combined by hand with exceptional flair, and are continually subject to meticulous inspection – after all, these movements will later be responsible for ensuring that the completed timepieces tick to the precise UNION GLASHÜTTE rhythm.
In the final watch assembly stage, the hands, dial and movement are combined into a single working unit and the device is positioned in its designated place inside the case. These steps go hand in hand with particularly challenging technical and aesthetic requirements for the watchmakers.
After assembly, each individual timepiece is inspected in a supreme, thorough quality management stage, whereby its water resistance, rate, appearance and function are put to the test one last time. If it passes these highly demanding tests, the UNION GLASHÜTTE timepiece is fitted with a high- quality strap and individual accessories that provide its new owner with all relevant information. After this, the watch can finally leave its home in Saxony. All UNION GLASHÜTTE timepieces carry with them the permanent hallmarks of their Saxon origin – the experience and care that have been bestowed upon them here – as they are worn on wrists throughout the world.
