Senator Tourbillon – Edition Alfred Helwig

Panorama Date and Flying Tourbillon

Glashütte, December 2017

The Senator Tourbillon – Edition Alfred Helwig appears to contradict the law of gravity in two ways at once: The untiring rotation of its Flying Tourbillon resists the pull of gravity, and the filigreed mounting reinforces the impression of pure weightlessness. With its new, light dial and individual numbering, the edition, limited to 25 pieces, offers moving insights into the lightness of being.

Timelessly beautiful: The new face of the Senator Tourbillon

The new version of the Senator Tourbillon is presented in a 42 mm white gold case framing a light, silver-grained dial whose finely textured surface sets off the black laser-engraved indexes and ...

Obituary Walter Lange

Walter Lange in front of the bust of his great-grandfather Ferdinand Adolph Lange.

Walter Lange (1924–2017)

Glashütte, 17 January 2017

Not very many people take it upon themselves to found a company at an age when most people are retiring. But there was no hesitation when, in 1990, Walter Lange had the opportunity to revitalise the factory of his forefathers, whose operations were interrupted by the Cold War and the division of Germany into East and West. He was 66 years old at the time. The reunification of Germany opened a historical window of opportunity for the great-grandson of Ferdinand Adolph Lange, founder of the Saxony-based maker of fine watches. After a 40-year-long involuntary hiatus, Walter Lange managed to breathe new life into the legend of the historical brand and to successfully take on the powerful competition from Swiss watchmakers. The clever idea of bringing Germany’s most famous watch brand back to life was so powerful that it made its way to reality.

With a small, committed team of ingenious engineers and watchmakers, he and his partner Günter Blümlein were able to find ...

Robert Mühle Zeigerdatum

Bring on the Complications: the New Robert Mühle Zeigerdatum

Glashütte, September 2016

Mühle-Glashütte is now honouring the life and work of its founder with its new Robert Mühle special edition, which also breathes fresh life into a classic complication that is now a rare treasure: the date hand. As you would expect from a timepiece made in a genuine manufacturing workshop, the mechanism was personally designed by Mühle-Glashütte's expert watchmakers themselves. This exclusive characteristic is even more enhanced by the fact that this special edition watch is limited to a total of just 100 pieces.

After founding his family company in 1869, Robert Mühle played a significant role in establishing the excellent reputation of the German town of Glashütte as a top watchmaking location thanks to his high-precision measuring instruments. This year, he would have celebrated his 175th birthday. This is reason enough for Mühle-Glashütte to celebrate its namesake by launching a traditionally manufactured classic timepiece that reflects the values practised by Robert Mühle in the most stunning way possible. The new Robert Mühle Zeigerdatum ...

John Harrison

John Harrison - berühmter englischer Uhrmacher

John Harrison wurde am 24. März 1693 (getauft 31. März 1693 in Foulby bei Wakefield, Yorkshire) als Sohn eines Zimmermanns geboren. Das Uhrmacherhandwerk erlernte er autodidaktisch. Er entwickelte das temperaturkompensierende Rostpendel sowie das Gegengesperr, welches auch während des Aufzuges von Gewichtsuhren den Kraftfluss zum Ankerrad nicht abreißen lässt.

Im Jahre 1714 setzte das englische Parlament die hohe Belohnung von 20.000 Pfund Sterling aus, für denjenigen, der es schafft, ein geeignetes Messinstrument zu erfinden,...
