The third cool installment of Wound for Life's German Watchmaking History is up today also everybody.
This part focuses on East Germany, and how Lange, and Glashutte watchmakers were more under the
umbrella of a communist economy. With watch companies like A. Lange und Sohne, Glashutte S.A., R
Muhle und Sohn and more coming upon tough times.

Amazingly though what would become VEB Glashütter Uhrenbetriebe (GUB) still manged to create some
watches, and movements like the Spezimatic, and later Spezichron. With today's Lange, Glashutte Original,
and Nomos being some of today's best watchmakers.

Here is that article for you everyone...
