SAXONIA MOON PHASE in front of the famous Rakotz Bridge in Kromlau, Saxony, in the full-moon night on 20 June

The new SAXONIA MOON PHASE is the star of a global photography project

Glashütte, July 2016

Unveiled at the SIHH in January, the SAXONIA MOON PHASE is now becoming available at points of sale. It pairs an accurate moon-phase display with the striking Lange outsize date.

Senator Excellence: 24 Days on the Test Bench

Senator Excellence:A rotating test device is used to simulate the conditions under which the watch is worn on the wrist and to test it in different positions.

Manufactory Calibre 36 promises new standard of quality

Glashütte, June 2016

At the heart of the Senator Excellence the manufactory Calibre 36 introduces a new generation of timepieces, and with it the Glashütte Original manufactory defines an innovative new standard of quality. Every single one of these watches bears a special engraving on the case back, which must be understood as a promise. Together with an individual examination certificate, the engraving guarantees the owner that the watch meets the highest standards in terms of stability, running time, precision and aesthetics, and that it has been thoroughly examined over the course of a long-term test lasting 24 days – under conditions even more demanding than those in force for the standard German chronometer tests.

Chronometerprüfung


Hochwertige Uhren zeigen nur geringe Gangabweichungen in Abhängigkeit von Lage und Temperatur. Sind die lage- und temperaturabhängigen Gangabweichungen besonders klein, so handelt es sich um einen Chronometer, ein Attribut für besonders genau gehende Uhren.

Verschiedene Organisationen prüfen auf Antrag des Werkeherstellers Werke auf ihre Eigenschaften als Chronometer durch umfangreiche Gangmessungen. Bei bestandener Prüfung erhält das Werk einen beglaubigten Gangschein. Zumeist druckt der Uhrenhersteller als Marketingmaßnahme die Bezeichnung Chronometer auf das Zifferblatt auf. Zu beachten ist allerdings, dass die Gangeigenschaften von der schweizerischen COSC ...
