Glashütte Original - Handmade in Germany

Fine guns and watchmaking have much in common. It is no wonder when you meet someone who likes fine guns, it's not uncommon to find out that he is also into fine watches. Glashütte Original are my personal favorite and I have two. Unfortunately I rarely wear one of them as I no longer wear a suit everyday now.

The following film is available for free on DVD as well as a current catalog here if you are interested.

Glashütte Original, like Merkel, is located in East Germany and fell victim to the communist regimes back in those days. Their stories are very similar and I am glad to see both survived the "dark days" and are flourishing today.
