Protected: the Glashütte Designation of Origin

Only the designation of a few products around the world are as strictly protected as watches from Glashütte. To emphasize these stringent quality standards, the appellation was placed under special protection: Only companies that create at least 50 percent of the value of a watch’s caliber in Glashütte may benefit from the reputation of this “center of excellence” and offer their timepieces as “Glashütte watches.” The fact that NOMOS Glashütte actually builds up to 95 percent of each movement in Glashütte, far exceeding the required 50 percent, is therefore particularly pleasing.

The sky, the hills, and the finest watches: Glashütte in the eastern Ore mountains.
