A prominent visitorEric Singer visits Glashütte Original
On Thursday, 13th June 2013, the watch manufactory Glashütte Original received a prominent visitor: Eric Singer, the drummer of the American hard rock band KISS. Singer was accompanied by Doc McGhee, the manager of the current KISS “Monster Tour”.
After being greeted by the Managing Director of Glashütte Original, Günter Wiegand, Eric Singer was shown the manufactory and was given detailed insights into the production process at Glashütte Original. In several departments, Eric Singer could observe live the accuracy and the craftsmanship of the employees at work. After being shown the current collection, both guests visited also the German Watch Museum and the Glashütte Original Boutique in Dresden.
Eric Singer is a watch aficionado and expert himself and owns a wide-ranging collection of fine mechanical watches. Among them are several current models of Glashütte Original as well as earlier models from the 60s and 70s produced in Glashütte. As a watch enthusiast, it has been Eric Singer’s wish for a long time to visit Glashütte Original in person and to learn more about the elaborate production process.
The current tour of the band, which led KISS to Berlin and then to Prague, provided Eric Singer with the opportunity to stop on his way to the Czech Republic to visit the manufactory and to meet with staff of Glashütte Original. Singer was impressed by the passion displayed by the fine mechanics and watchmakers he met as well as by the current collection he was shown after his tour.
