Glashütte’s original five creative short films complete their premiere
Inspired by the partners, Glashütte Original also opened a movie premiere for himself this year, showing the public’s five different views on the brand.
A few months ago, the Saxon watchmaker invited Glashütte’s original friends and connoisseurs to contribute enthusiastically to design their own film ideas based on their own perceptions, thereby showing the unusual new side of Glashütte’s original brand. These five unique short films were born; they document the very personal and emotional connection between the protagonist and Glashütte’s originals, while also highlighting the characteristics of the watch factory. At the 65th Berlin International Film Festival, Glashütte Originals will show these films to the public for the first time.

To pay tribute to WimWenders, the winner of this year’s ‘Golden Bear’, Glashütte Originals will once again cooperate with the Berlin Film Museum in an exhibition called ‘Under the Berlin Sky’ showing Wenders in 1987 Original props, photos and archives for a film of the same name directed.
‘Berlin Under the Sky’ is a fantasy-style literary film produced by West German director Wim Wenders after returning to the United States for many years. The film describes the two angels Damill and Cassirer to guard West Berlin and shuttle Every corner of the city, listen to people’s dreams and concerns. One day, Damill saw the female trapeze Marion in the circus before the final rehearsal. She was dressed like an angel in wings, and she was attracted to her. After listening to her inner secret, she fell in love even more. She, then resolutely pursued a true love that is tangible. Wenders, who is good at making road movies, this time changed space into a journey of time, allowing two angels to walk from one story to another, thereby reflecting the face of Germany in the transformation of the great era.
The festival will feature original props, photos and archives of the 1987 film of the same name directed by Wenders. Wenders, who is good at making road movies, changed the space into a time journey in ‘Berlin Under the Sky’, allowing the two angels to walk from one story to another, perfectly reflecting the face of Germany in the era of change. Time inherits history, time precipitates culture, and time records classics. To appreciate German culture through the time journey in the original film has always been what Glashütte Original wanted to convey, which also coincides with the spirit of the brand.
Watchmaking, like film, is also a manifestation of an art form. The original watchmakers from Glashütte also work here, showing guests the finest German watchmaking art from 1845. Glashütte’s original and serious story about time in Germany, like the lines in ‘Under the Berlin Sky’, ‘I have a story, you must continue, time has become so serious, this is life.’ This is also a perfect portrayal of Glashütte’s originality.
