Moon over Saxony

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.

Quarzkrise

Als "Quarzkrise" wird gemeinhin die Krise benannt, in die sich die Schweizer Uhrenindustrie durch ihre angestrengten Bemühungen zur Entwicklung der neuesten Quarzuhren-Technologie selbst gestürzt hatte. Zuerst war diese neue Erfindung als bedeutender Fortschritt in bezug auf Genauigkeit und Vereinfachung gefeiert worden, bis sich binnen kürzester Zeit ihre fatale Kehrseite herausstellte: Die Uhren dieses Typs konnten nämlich in Fernost um einiges billiger produziert werden. Schlagartig sanken die Umsätze der Schweizer Hersteller, und viele in diesem Industriezweig Tätige verloren ihre Existenzgrundlage.

Nachdem es noch Ende der 70er und Anfang der 80er Jahre ganz danach ausgesehen hatte, als wäre die mechanische Armbanduhr vom Typ "Swiss Made" nicht mehr zu retten, erlebte sie nur kurze Zeit danach eine bemerkenswerte Wiedergeburt - mit der damals kaum jemand gerechnet hatte.
