A Glashütte pocket watch on the road
First ascent of Kilimanjaro

On 6th October 1889, Leipzig-based publisher Hans Heinrich Josef Meyer (1858–1929) was the first to reach the summit of Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. Three Glashütte pocket watches were included in the travel equipment.

On the occasion of the 130th anniversary of the first ascent, the German Watch Museum Glashütte is displaying the unique pocket watch in a small, exclusive exhibition in the foyer of the museum. Visitors can get an insight into the eventful life of explorer and entrepreneur Hans Meyer and learn more about the history of this special Glashütte watch.
