German Watch Museum Glashütte inaugurated

(...)In accordance with the exhibition’s motto “The Fascination of Time – Bringing Time to Life”, the Watch Museum will illuminate not only the fine art of watchmaking, but will also facilitate emotional and philosophical access to the phenomenon of time itself.
More than 450 unique exhibits are presented on two floors with an exhibition space of 1000 m2. Glashütte pocket watches, wristwatches and pendulum clocks from different periods, marine chronometers and escapement models, historical certificates and patents, tools and workbenches, as well as astronomical models and metronomes are all displayed in a very artful fashion. Thematically, the exhibition is composed of a series of “historical rooms” and “time rooms”, all framed by a prologue and an epilogue.
Dr. Frank Müller, Managing Director of Glashütte Original, commented on the opening with the following words: “As a modern and experience-orientated time-world, the museum is designed to appeal not only to watch enthusiasts but is also consciously orientated to the general public, to families and to young people. We are already looking forward to receiving our first visitors and hope that our exciting museum will contribute to passing on the fascination of the art of watchmaking as well as knowledge about timekeeping to the next generation.”

Background information:
In a past stretching back 500 years, the town of Glashütte can look back on 160 years of the exciting, continuous and fascinating history of the watch-making industry. During this time, many buildings which are important in the watch-making industry were constructed. And even today, the majority of these buildings are still used – or are once again being used – for the manufacture of traditional Glashütte timepieces. The one major exception here is the building in the heart of the town which formerly housed the German School of Watch-making.
