Original Glashütte, the art of measuring time

Just a few meters from the elegant Place Vendôme, rue de la Paix has become “the place” where great watchmakers in the world have been installing their boutiques, including the German manufacturer, Glashütte Original who have inaugurated an amazing space dedicated to showcasing their German excellence in watchmaking.

The new Parisian flagship store is quite large with over 135 square meters, showing the fabulous range of timepieces of this renowned watchmaker which was founded in 1845 in the small town of Glashütte, situated in the Saxon valley of Müglitz.

The brand, based on the great traditions of watchmaking, prides itself on being one of the few manufacturers capable of producing almost all of its own movements and raising each creation to the ranking of a work of art.

The new Parisian address perfectly reflects the image of the brand: chic, contemporary and sophisticated environment that highlights Glashütte’s savoir faire in a very unique way.

It is through a special “Wonder Wall”, located at the entrance of the store, which as a library, gives the customer a fantastic discovery of the steps of assembling a watch and reveals the secrets of those minuscule, yet unbelievable precise components that contribute to the reputation of this watchmaker.

Another in-store novelty is the “Experience Wall” where through two screens integrated into the decoration, offering an interactive journey of discovery on the lengthy time and complicated process in building a fine watch.

Visiting this store offers one a very personal opportunity to admire all its emblematic models. When purchasing such an exceptional object, it’s important to be accompanied and advised by great in-store staff – and the knowledge and professionalism that the Glashütte store staff provide is to an extremely high standard. Particular favourites include the collection “Senator Excellence”, the Date Panorama and the Panorama Phase de Lune.

A masterpiece of the brand, the Senator Excellence – Calibre 36 model, was developed to provide a basis for new models of the line “Senator Excellence” in its precision, running time, stability and aesthetics. The panorama models are elegant and feminine, inspired by by the symbolic use of the moon.
