    Glashutte Original Boutique in Vienna...

    I had the opportunity to attend to the inauguration of Glashütte Original’s new boutique in Vienna, at Am Kolmarkt 4.
    Last Thursday I took an early morning flight to Vienna. The invitation also included a presentation of their new innovative Senator Excellence, caliber 36. A very elegant watch. It has more than 100 hours of power reserve and the time-keeping is exellent.
    In the evening it was time for the grand opening of the boutique in the presence of many guests. We were served oysters and champagne. The new CEO, Thomas Meier cut the ribbon.


    The evening ended with classical music. From the newly opened boutique they had created a lightened path that led to the Michaeler platz where the classical concert would be enjoyed. There were also experts from GO who showed how the manual engraving and the dialmaking are done.
    Gustav Mahler Ensemble performed Mozart, Grieg and Strauss. After the concert, it was time to head for the magnificent hotel Steigenberger, where I slept very well.
    It had been a long and eventful day. On Friday morning, I went home to Stockholm with many nice memories.
    A big thank you to Renè and the Glashütte Original team for giving me the opportunity to attend to this nice event.


























    Best Regards
    Anders

    Neat post, thanks for sharing it!

    Got to try on my first GO's in Chicago (USA) at Swiss Fine Timing on Michigan Ave over the weekend. I went there specifically to try them on. Was very impressed overall. Loved the Panomatic dials! Special thanks to Ling, who was very helpful.

    Sounds and looks like you had a great evening.

    Now, the pressing question is, did you buy a new GO?

    I had it really good there.
    I bought nothing but the new GO Senator Excellent moon phase cal 36, 100 hours power reserve attracts little.

    Exactly!

    Thank you for this post and the beautiful pictures. What a lovely event. If you didn't pick up a new GO, then do you have one in mind next? Inquiring minds want to know...

    Sounds like a lovely event. A bit odd that they took over a Nordsee restaurant (Germany's answer to Long John Silver's) for the food bash - I'm sure the oysters didn't come downstream from the BASF plant like most of Nordsee's "catch".

    Vienna IS the place for classical music and I'm glad you had a good time and it looks like a nice store. I'll have to pop by next time I'm in Wien.

    Thanks for sharing the pics from the event.

    I feel GO should get more exposure and love when compared to the more illustrious ALS.

    Looks like it was quite the event. What watch did you wear?

    What about the Senator Chronometer Blue? Did they have one of those at the soirée? I'd love to hear your impression if they did.
