Last week I was treated to a very interesting factory tour @ MG. At the site in Glashütte a major reconstruction is going on but I was greeted on short notice to a 90 minute exclusive tour of their facilities with an extensive history lesson of one of the more interesting independent Glashütte brands. A special anniversary MG exhibition at the Uhrenmuseum in Glashütte concluded my visit.

The factory tours are an eye opener. They impart the human experience. But the word factory makes one think of assembly lines
whereas the watch making craft in MG is a one on one personal experience. Time and attention. Adjustment and regulation proceeds at an individual's pace. The tour photos do not portray unending pressure to produce, But rather a deeper concentration to create a tiny machine. This is watchmaking in its finest hour
