Coat Glashutte just symbolizes this period, when from the mining town turned to manufacturing hours.

Watches manufactured in Glashütte gained an international reputation, so the city has come a lot of talented watchmakers, as well as specialists in the manufacture of shells, arrows, and other elements of appearance. With the approach of World War II development of the watchmaking industry came to an end. Many companies prishlost hour to dismiss its staff. No one could predict the further development of demand for their high quality products.

Nevertheless, when the war began to open again watch companies, as well as many new, and among them November 9, 1918 the company opened Deutsche Präzisions-Uhrenfabrik Glashütte (DPUG). And in his company's logo specially emphasized the word «Original Glashütte».

Logo «Original Glashütte» first appeared on the dials of watches in 1921, thus the company has allocated DPUG their products among other manufacturers.

Since the beginning of World War II development in Glashütte watch companies had stopped. Watch manufacturers are required to produce the goods needed for war. Towards the very end of the war, May 8, 1945 Glashutte suffered bomb airstrike, in addition, after the war many factories were seized and dismantled by Soviet troops. And again from Glashütte watchmaker had to start all over again.

July 1, 1951 all of the independent watch companies formed Glashutte watch conglomerate VEB Glashütte Uhrenbetriebe. Lack of funding, cash flow from other countries and ban the import of products led to the complete autonomy of watchmaking. Beginning with the production of machinery and ending production of the necessary tools, as well as exterior design - all done in the field.

After German reunification, VEB Glashütte Uhrenbetriebe was transformed into Glashütte Uhrenbetrieb GmbH. The new company became the rightful heir of all watch companies based in Glashütte in the past. Staying true to the old tradition of making mechanical watches, the company was able to return again to watch the market and the brand Glashütte Original has become synonymous with quality German machinery.

In 2000, Glashütte Uhrenbetrieb GmbH was owned by The Swatch Group Ltd.
