I have been interested in watches about thirty years. When I became interested in them there were no internet, no watch magazines or not even many friends who would have shared this same passion. There are lots of great brands with nice models that I like but it must accept that they all cannot be bought. That's why I usually try to collect information about the watch and think about purchasing carefully before buying. I became interested in Glashütte Original some years ago when they started selling them in Finland. Earlier I had seen them in display windows while traveling abroad. I do the same as you do when traveling somewhere, go to see all display windows of watch shops and probably go into them. I had also seen lots of great pics of GO posted by Jocke and Tony while writing on Tony's swedish watch forum that he runs. GO is also a bit different brand and not so common than the other brands I have. I have also visited at their factory. It was pleasant experience to see and hear about the manufactoring by their friendly personnel.
