Strong interest in Glashütte’s art of watchmaking in Hong Kong
Glashütte Original presents selected exhibits of the German Watch Museum Glashütte for the first time in Asia
From May 14 – 17, Glashütte Original, the founder of the German Watch Museum Glashütte, took part in the international fair ART HK 09 which attracted more than 27,000 visitors. Rare timekeepers from Glashütte were presented to an Asian audience for the first time and generated strong interest in the art of fine German watchmaking.
During the fair, Glashütte Original displayed a selection of its current models that have been produced largely by hand, in the traditional Glashütte way. During the four days, selected exhibits of the museum including pocket watches, pilot watches, chronographs, early wristwatches, and historic working tools were equally on show representing more than 160 years of continuous creation and development.
Live demonstrations provided fascinating insights into the art of mechanical watchmaking. Numerous interested visitors were thus able to experience directly the striking precision and meticulous exactness that Glashütte watchmakers achieve in their work.
