The Union Glashütte universe originated in the heart of German watchmaking — Glashütte, where founder Johannes Dürrstein established Uhrenfabrik Union in 1893. His vision of watches was dictated by his idea of creating high-end mechanical timepieces that could be accessible to all. Having undergone several ups and downs in the century-plus since its launch, the house still maintains the founder’s commitment to affordable luxury. The maison today wields a sweeping catalogue populated by designs so diverse they speak to various sensibilities. From elegant to sporty and modern to classic, each Union Glashütte is informed by a sense of refinement and timeless aesthetics. 


A Union Of Style And Substance

At the vanguard of German watchmaking, Union Glashütte redefines luxury with its timepieces that celebrate an effortless synthesis of form and function. These watches withstand the test of time, maintaining relevance and resonating with connoisseurs for more than a century. Reason? Every creation from the maison carries a classic semblance that is suitably expressive but considerably simple, devoid of any extra frill. They are primarily produced in stainless steel with a handful of 18k gold options. A typical Union Glashütte carries a streamlined construction with a round case (except for Averin watches that come with a square case) and a neatly configured dial protected by sapphire crystal glass. Additionally, the house kits all its timepieces with an exhibition case back, revealing the efficient mechanical movement that powers it. 

Union Glashütte dwells under the umbrella of the Swatch Group. Therefore, due to the conglomerate’s vertically-integrated model, it uses ETA movements. But, many components, such as the rotor, balance cocks, and bridges, are Glashütte-made. Moreover, the assembly of these components and movement decoration which includes perlage and the signature stripe pattern, are carried out by Union watchmakers. 

Most Union Glashütte watches are simple time-telling instruments with date functions, keeping things subtle and straightforward. Yet, where the house does decide to add complications, it's done bearing the wearer’s comfort and practicality in mind. Other complications found in Union watches count power reserve, chronograph, moonphase display, calendar, and second-time zone. 

Union Glashütte Watch Collections

Union Glashütte’s current collection includes six major families. Belisar, an assortment of sophisticated sports watches, is maison’s most versatile and popular collection. From variety in complications to diversity in dials, Belisar offers a wholesome selection that’ll have something for everyone. Noramis, on the other hand, is elegance manifested through and through. It’s a collection that reflects the minimalism of German watchmaking. Domed dials, slender bezels, and curved glass underscore timeless aesthetics, transforming Noramis watches into the ‘Charming Classics’ the brand claims them to be. 

Inspired by the watches produced by Union Glashütte during the early years of its foundation, 1893 includes impactful, function-driven timepieces that evoke happy nostalgia. Timeless details, such as the railway track chapter rings and blue-hued hands, are paired with helpful complications. The modest yet engaging dials come reinforced by both self and manual winding calibres. Collection 1893 also includes limited edition series dedicated to founder — Johannes Dürrstein. 

Seris and Sirona are beautiful women’s watches that employ the enigmatic charm of diamonds and mother-of-pearl to exude a sense of timeless femininity. And finally, Viro is a perfect amalgamation of traditional and modern attitudes, bringing Union Glashütte’s confident watchmaking with a perennially refined aesthetic.
