To many Glashutte Original watch lovers, there is nothing more beautiful than one of their hand wound mechanical wristwatches. Manual wound Glashutte Original watches as they commonly go by the name, strip things back to basics. They embrace simplicity and celebrate traditional watch manufacture in its basic of forms. The connection with one of these Glashutte Original manual watches and the owner will vary from one person to the next, but what remains important is that the wearer uses that time to appreciate the meticulous mechanics behind a luxury brand by getting hands on with their wristwatch via a beautifully polished crown engraved with the iconic double “G” motif.
A manual Glashutte Original watch obtains its power solely from the wearer’s touch. The owner of the watch must use the guidance of their thumb to feel the tightening of the mainspring – a connection like no other. The hands of the Glashutte Original watch will turn effortlessly on the wrist from that point onwards, until the time comes again for the movement to be wound. Our hand wound Glashutte Original watches will last a lifetime provided that utmost care is taken to look after them, as with any luxury wristwatch. These special timepieces can be handed down as an heirloom from one generation to another as a lasting investment that will only grow in value with age.
