Julius Assmann, born in 1827, was a passionate watchmaker in Glashütte, Germany. He was once employed by his father-in-law, F. A. Lange, the man who laid the cornerstone of the German watchmaking industry in the 1840s. Assmann founded his own company in 1852, the Julius Assmann Deutsche Präzisions-Taschenuhren-Fabrik (German Precision Pocket Watch Factory) producing key wound pocket watches, and were soon awarded the gold medal by the German Trade Industry. Within two years, Assmann watches progressed to winding by the crown and three-quarter plates so characteristic of Glashütte.
Julius Assmann died in 1886 at the age of 58 and his company was divided among the Assmann family.
The Glashütte Original Julius Assmann is a contemporary interpretation of the Assmann masterpieces paying homage to the famous watchmaker. It bears all of the attributes of a real Assmann timepiece: the three-quarter plate, screwed gold chatons, screwed balance, Breguet balance-spring, and the exquisitely finished filigreed tourbillon cage, all enclosed in a small openface pocket watch case.
