We guarantee that the pictured item is an original Union Glashütte watch.
The tradesman Johannes Dürrstein had a very simple demand when he founded the Glashütter Watch Factory Union: "Clocks that have everthing which makes them accurate and beautiful but nothing that makes them expensive." In 1893 Dürrstein established his own watch manufactory in Glashütte, a town that is steeped in the tradition of watchmaking and produced only the best, finest and most precise devices of that craftmanship. To proof his horological competence, he charged master watchmaker Julius Bergter around 1900 with the construction of a particularly complex watch that would excel the up until then most successful calibre of the Grande Complication. This watch marks an apogee in the art of watchmaking and with its 18 complications it was considered to be the world's most complicated watch for a long time.
In 1952 a drastic change occured: all Glashütter watchbrands were merged into Uhrenkombinat VEB Glashütter Uhrenbetrieb. After the reunification the enterprise was bought up and renamed as Glashütter Uhrenbetriebe. In 1994 the legally independent "Union Uhrenfabrik GmbH Glashütte/SA" came into existence under a new direction.
Since 2000, Union belongs to the Swiss Swatch Group, a formation remembering the strong points of traditional watches and producing again under Dürrstein's original motivation: "Clocks that have everything...!"
