Where can we buy Union Glashutte watches in the US?

They have some beautiful pieces, but I have yet to see them stateside.

Regarding to the information on their website(German only), their products are limited for the German and Austrian market at the moment.

I hate their logo, but the watches are nice.

I swear I saw some in Zurich, not that it helps you in the US

Definitely not available in the US. I would highly recommend handling Union watches before making a purchase. They are less expensive than Glashutte Original and the finishing reflects the difference in price. The pieces I've handled were closest to Eberhard and Fortis in both quality and relative value.

I would check with Markus Tschopp if you know what model you want to buy. He's sold a few UG in the past

Thanks - is he a seller on TimeZone?

The newer models no longer use an in-house movement, correct?

He's one of the oldest grey market dealers, based in Switzerland (http://www.watches.de/en/contact.html)

I also tried looking for UGs in the past to no avail. Only way is to go to their authorized resellers really. From what I understand they share the same facilities as Glashutte Originals' with UG taking the backseat in the totem pole.

While GO is sold via a worldwide retailer network and does not belong to the Swatch Group, obviously.

Union seems to purvey on two test markets for now.
