GLASHÜTTE ORIGINAL UHRENFABRIK UNION UNIQUE AND RARE EXAMPLE OF TIMEPIECE VERY BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE SKELETON WATCH 1911 VERY BEAUTIFUL MECHANICAL WORK The best source for vintage watches offering this beautiful amazing large skeletonized dress a NOBLE DESIGN WATCH that dates to 1911 and decorated with the HIGHEST QUALITY ENGRAVING. It was made by the venerable German Watch Company of “GLASHÜTTE”. Ferdinand Adolph Lange (1815-1875)German clockmaker Glashutte Original history Glashutte Original was created in 1845, when the German master watchmakers, Ferdiand Al Lange, Julius Assmann, Ludwig Strasser, Johannes Durrstein, Adolf Schneider, Strasser and Rohde, Ernst Kassiske settled in the region of Glasshutte. These master watchmakers were awarded various gold model at the world exhibition and international competitions, thus creating the foundation and reputation of watching making industry of Glashutte. In 1878, Moritz Grossmann founded the German School of Watchmaking, hence building groundwork for more skillful watchmakers in the region of Glashutte and transforming the region into a reputed symbol of watchmaking excellence. In the beginning of World War II, the watch manufactories in Glasutte was still in the production of military watches for the Navy and Air Force. Later, in the last day of War World II, Glashutte was bombed from the sky and the factories were badly destroyed. The reminding unaffected factories merged and found the VEB Glashutter Uhrenbetriebe under the rule of East German state. After the reunification of Germany in 1990, The VEB Glashutte was transformed into the Glashutter Uhrenbetrieb GmbH. The skillful master watchmakers remained. The company, then, was transformed to a global enterprise from the state-owned company. Today, the new name of the company is Glasshutte Original, but it is still carrying the old tradition of Glashutte watchmaking for more than 150 years. Characters of Glashutte Original Glashutte Original timepieces are still carrying the old tradition of German watchmaking. The unusual three-quarter plate, the seductive German silver as the raw material for the components of the movements, the beautiful gold chatons holding for jewels, the gorgeous swan-neck regulators, and the exalted idea of manufacturing all of the components exclusively in the factory, without outsourcer assistance. With the old traditional craftsmanship and modern machines, Glashutte Original, without a doubt, is created which incorporates all the best German virtues. This gorgeous, men’s watch is a very handsome specimen and features a steel applied Roman numerals, steel skeleton hands with luminous fill and a recessed sub-seconds “sweep” steel hand. The new dial has been professionally updated, and now is in excellent condition. It is a registered design model that features a three piece MELCHIOR CASE that provides with glass cover of back lid. This watch was converted from pocket watch. The case, new custom made, fantastic, build specially for this excellent GLASHÜTTE movement. The lugs are in great condition while the Onion-style winding crown is in very good shape and operates properly. The case has MINERAL glasses on the front and back side. The case is decorated HIGH QUALITY ENGRAVING.

Also is signed the movement serial number #62.193. This serial number dates this watch to 1911 as per published production numbers. On back side you can see HIGHEST QUALITY ENGRAVING mechanism with SCREW-FITTED END-PIECES for the ESCAPE WHEEL, BI-METALLIC MICROMETER REGULATOR & BLUE BREGUET BALANCE SPRING. The movement maker is not marked but I hope another collector can identify the maker within the GLASHUTTE Guild as it is clearly higher grade. Mechanism has been recently serviced to ensure it winds and sets smoothly while keeping great, accurate time. You can see from any direction the internal mechanics working as the balance wheel spins. They make an elegant statement on the wrist. Watch aficionados and laymen alike when they see a high quality skeletonized watch recognize its beauty. This is a “NAIL SET” watch so you don’t pull the crown out to set the time. Instead, you press the little button near the crown IN and then move the crown to set the hands, releasing the button once you’re finished. It’s easy, so don’t worry about getting the hang of it! It is fitted on a new 24mm black alligator style genuine leather strap with Stainless steel buckle that has a great vintage look to it. Diameter (with crown): 52.00 mmDiameter (without crown): 47.00 mmWatch crystal diameter: 42.00 mmThickness: 17.00 mm This rare watch winds and set smoothly while keeping very good, accurate time. Because of the vintage nature of the watch I cannot guarantee its absolute time keeping accuracy even if they are in good running condition and in some rare occasions may require additional adjustment.

I always have beautiful pristine timepieces for sale ending Monday. Now on eBay for 10 Years! Recommendations for the owner of vintage watches: - All Antique watches are mechanical. Many repairs will not be cheap, as most likely they will require replacement of non-standard parts (unlike most late model watches). - Antique watches should not be beaten or dropped - because repairs may be expensive. - Antique watches are generally NOT waterproof. This is because waterproofing was not in general production until the middle of the 20th century for most watches. Therefore you should protect your antique watch from exposure to moisture. - If your watch becomes wet it should be dried off quickly. Carefully open all covers and use a hair drier to blow dry the movement, dial, covers, crown. This will reduce the amount of rust. - If your watch becomes wet with any kind of salt water you should immediately immerse or spray your watch with fresh (no-salt) water to remove all the salt from the works before drying the watch completely. Any salt left in the watch will combine with moisture in the air to rust metal components of the movement, case etc. - Winding any mechanical watch tight may break the mainspring. If you can avoid it do not wind the watch hard. - When adjusting the hands of your watch, move them in a clockwise direction only. Counter-clockwise adjustments may damage the movement. - If you must adjust counter-clockwise make it for small adjustments only (i.e. for minutes, NOT hours). - Be careful and gentle when adjusting the movement speed (faster or slower). Don't make sharp movements, and don't touch other components in the movement especially the pendulum mechanism. - Every 2-3 years it is necessary to service and oil vintage watches. - If the watch is dirty - allow the watch to run down, don't wind it again until you have it serviced by a qualified watch repair expert. Dust will absorb and remove important lubricants and cause the movement pieces to wear down. - To clean the case, dial and crystal you should use a cloth that does NOT leave fibers as these may get caught up in the movement. Check with your Watch repair expert to get an appropriate cloth. - Keep your antiques watch away from magnets. Strong magnetic fields may affect the accuracy of your watch since some vintage watches were made with iron based components in the movement. - Most Cases and Covers are fine components and will not handle abuse well. The watch should not be shaken, beaten, or stressed. - Antique watches generally experience an error of up to 5-7 minutes a day. Any accuracy of +- 5 minutes is very good.
