High-quality products from the Ore Mountains

Watches from Glashütte

For dreamers it is an intangible phenomenon, for pragmatists a physical variable: time. People have been theorising and philosophising about it for thousands of years. Time has played an important role in the town of Glashütte for over 170 years. It was there that the centre of German watchmaking developed, which is still one of the most famous in Europe today.  Glashütte is synonymous with the perfect blend of precision and luxury that is still passed on to talented young people in numerous watch companies today. The former building of the German Watchmaking School has housed the German Watch Museum since 2008, which invites visitors on a journey through the 170-year history of watchmaking in Glashütte - a journey through space and time.

Gloves from Schneeberg

Guests entering the realm of Nils Bergauer are greeted by the soothing smell of leather and the gentle creaks of wooden floorboards. As the youngest glove maker in the republic, the young man works in his workshop on old machines that are still used faithfully for cutting, punching, sewing, quilting, lashing and pressing, even after countless repetitions. Gloves are created for everyone and every occasion, for ladies and gentleman, for festive balls and everyday use, under the skilful hands of Nils Bergauer.

The production of leather gloves is and remains a classic craft. This is juxtaposed with the interpretation of fashion trends, where there are virtually no limits to creativity in the additional use of coloured leathers, furs, fine lace and other accessories. These are made to measure in Schneeberg in a superior quality without equal.
