    2020: MeisterSinger and Mühle Glashütte celebrating 30 years of German re-unification

    MeisterSinger and Mühle Glashütte will launch a special edition to celebrate the German re-unification 30 years ago.

    Just received an exiting press release:

    On October 3rd, 2020 Germany will celebrate 30 years of German re-unification. MeisterSinger from Münster in North-Rhine-Westphalia and Mühle Glashütte from Glashütte/Saxony together celebrate this historic event with a limited set of 30 watches.

    Up in the western part of Germany, where the sun goes down, MeisterSinger produces unique one-hand watches. Mühle-Glashütte builds classic as well as sporty wristwatches in the eastern part of Germany, where it gets the earliest light in Germany every morning.

    On occasion of the 30th anniversary of the German re-unification, both manufacturers decided to co-operate for the first time to launch a wonderful wristwatch set, limited to 30 units - and are thus commemorating the -reunification of East and West.

    Already on the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall there was a lot of discussion about what differentiates and connects Germans in East and West. In the case of MeisterSinger and Mühle-Glashütte, one can only confirm a successful east-west relationship. Of course, unity does not mean hiding your own identity. Despite all the harmony, there are differences between the two.
    The Mühle family has been working in the Glashütte watch industry for five generations. This makes Mühle Glashütte the only watch manufacturer still being run and owned Glashütte family. In contrast, MeisterSinger is still a very young company. As an independent watch manufacturer, however, it has retained its independence in every respect.

    Both manufacturers have their own factual design language. Both have developed timepieces that have long been considered design classics. This is where the idea for the “Einheitsuhr“ project was born - a special edition that was intended to preserve and emphasize what was shared.

    The special edition, an exclusive set of a MeisterSinger and a Mühle Glashütte watch, was developed by a joint team and will be presented in summer 2020.

    The MeisterSinger/Mühle „Einheitsuhr“ set is limited to 30 pieces and will only be available from jewelers who carry both brands.

    In addition to this set, each manufacturer will also Produce 60 sole timepieces of their „Einheitsuhr“ to the standard edition, which are designed slightly different and will also be available individually from partner jewelers.

    An identical rotor will be used In all timepieces. The rotor will be an ever lasting feature Of German-German cooperation and is intended to be a symbol of the fact that, despite all the differences, there is a deeper, inner unity between East and West, between Mühle-Glashütte and MeisterSinger.

    I will keep you in the loop. Hope to get a bit more information at the Inhorgenta or in Basel but I am almost sure that MeisterSinger and Mühle will keep it a secret as long as possible.

    What a great way to honor the occasion. I’ve been obsessed with the Meistersinger Lunascope (golden moon) since seeing one at WatchTime NYC last year and meeting folks from the brand. Any idea what the price point of these limited editions may be? Might want to hold off picking up a piece considering the history and care being put into these two LE’s.
