Marine chronometers Glashutte Original.

Marine chronometers started making in the 19th century.

Glashutte released more than 13,000 timepieces for more than a century.

Thirteen of these historic instruments issued in recent years, have been found during the preparations for the opening of the German watch Glashutte Museum.

It was a wonderful find.

Each of them has been renovated and updated.

Glashutte specialists have created new boxes for each chronometer.

In addition to the performance tests, the restorers carried out a number of works to improve the appearance.

All plates, bridges, screws have been carefully processed and polished.

The dials also restored: a complex coating with silver paint while preserving the original hour markers and indices.

The numbering of each unit completes the unique style of the distinctive sea hours.
