    Glashutte Original - I was unaware

    I always saw Glashutte Original in the forums here and there, but never thought much of them. For the first time I went to there website and was blown away! They have so many different models and they look amazing. Reminds me of A. Lange and Sohne a lot but definitely more affordable.

    I see that they are owned by Swatch Group and has a lot of heritage. I don’t know why these aren’t more popular than they are. What’s everyone’s thought on Glashutte Watches?

    I’m a big fan, although I don’t (yet?) own one. I love the Senator Sixties Green dial, Mets41 has one that he posts pictures of and I never get tired of that watch. There’s more I like as well too, in fact most of what I’ve seen from them I like.

    I would consider a Senator Seventies my grail. You can find one used for 5-6k, which is incredible considering what you get compared to Rolex and other brands in that price range.

    GO is my favorite single brand on the market today. There may very well be better individual watches out there, but in terms of breadth of their offerings and consistently high quality, they are remarkable. Having spent several hours at two different ADs last week, I placed an order for my first GO. As indicated in my recent review/comparison, the Senator Chronometer outshines the Lange 1815 Up/Down in my opinion (https://forums.watchuseek.com/f8/go-...4956169-3.html).

    With their new Spezialist line, they now have reintroduced sports watches, beginning with a recreation of one of their historic divers from 1969. I cannot wait to see one in the metal.

    Swatch owns two Glashütte brands that I am aware of:

    Glashütte Original is their "upper-scale" brand which seems to make all of their movements in-house.

    Union Glashütte is their more affordable brand running ETA movements.

    Both make very nice watches.

    I can see why you say that. Fortunately, I have a large, flat wrist which means that I can rock anything they make.

    A watch collection without a GO is incomplete.

    GO is pretty darned good in many respects. They have lovely movements, some incredible complications, and a unique design. Some of the watches are a bit bulky and the depreciation on them is a bit severe, but I will eventually have one.

    I agree, although I have yet to add one.

    OP: yes GO are great and look amazing in the metal too.

    The Seventies Panorama Date: https://www.glashuette-original.com/...39-47-13-12-14, the Senator Chronometer: https://www.glashuette-original.com/...58-01-01-04-04, and the Senator Cosmospolite: https://www.glashuette-original.com/...89-02-01-04-30, are the stand outs for me.
