6 June 2018: Twelve excited watch collectors from the USA accepted the invitation of Ebner Verlag’s watch portal Watch Time and registered to take part in the first German Watchmaking Tour to Glashütte. During an extensive tour of the Moritz Grossmann manufactory, guests were able to experience all the phases of our pure watchmaking art, from the construction to the finish. The production of the hands and the finish particularly impressed the watch connoisseurs, who got to see some very exclusive artistry put into practice.
CEO Christine Hutter told the guests in person about the exciting history of Carl Moritz Grossmann and how she discovered the Glashütte watch pioneer, revived his name and his philosophy and thus created another Moritz Grossmann manufactory in Glashütte. In addition to their passion for mechanical watches, the American guests were particularly enthusiastic about the company’s pioneering work, both then and now: ‘I also really liked our visit to Moritz Grossman. The founder Christine Hutter was really impressive, and I loved hearing her story’.
Every year, Ebner Verlag and Watch Time organise several trips to the most sought-after brands in Switzerland for watch fans from all over the world. Two trips to Germany will be offered in 2018 for the first time and we hope to welcome such interested and well-informed guests again next year following this year’s positive responses. Conversations with collectors who have such detailed knowledge are also very inspiring for us.
