Julius Assmann was born in Stettin on 2nd 1827. He became a watchmaker there and started work as an adjuster in the company A. Lange in 1850, where he was able to considerably expand his expertise and skills. He founded his own company, the "Präzisionsuhrenfabrik J. Assmann", in 1852, which went on to manufacture high-quality, Glashütte precision watches. Both the three-quarter plate and the Glashütte escapement are excellent examples for Assmann's work, which was on par with that of the pocket watches manufactured at A. Lange & Söhne. Assmann's watches were produced almost exclusively for shipment overseas until the 1880s.
