Gosh  --  where to start?

 

With the (very) small town of Glashütte?

This community of only seven thousand people is home to so man meaningful watch brands  --  and they are so close that they trip over each other . . .

In addition to GO, ALS, MG and Nomos which you can see in the photo, Tutima, Mühle, Söhnle and Wempe are a short walk away.

Glashütte Stripes . . .

. . . . which I suppose must be different from Geneva Stripes  --  but I will (as ever) defer to @Karrusel on that subject.

Glashütte Original  --  the post reunification reincarnation of VEB Glashütte Uhren Betriebe (the old East German nationalised watch conglomerate).

Now (as part of the Swatch Group) offering serious German watchmaking for not too silly money . . .

And for my section of the glossary, we go a little sideways in time to a sister of GO, to Union Glashütte Panoramadatum:

Then back in time to a new arrival for me, GUB (VEB Glashütte Uhren Betriebe). This is in need of a service, new crystal and a proper strap all of which it will soon get.
