This 41mm Union Glashütte Viro is a great value choice when compared to the mainstream brands.  Model reference D001.407 A.


From the warranty card  which has the matching serial number and the matched original receipt we can accurately date this watch to being sold in 2016.


Union are based in the home of German watchmaking, Glashütte.  Other brands in this pretty town include A. Lange & Söhne, Maurice Grossman, NOMOS, Glashütte Original and Tutima – all brands we have both offered and enjoyed having before.   While these brands are not as well known as their Swiss competition, there is no mistaking their quality.  This Viro is still available (with slight variations) new and they cost €1,500, which is already good value when compared to the similar spec Tudor 1926 (£1,840).   If anything, the Union Viro is the better choice – the hands are more legible, which is a key thing for most people in a watch!  That is partly due to very good anti reflective coating on the sapphire crystal and a slight curve on the hands.  The movement is visible via the exhibition case back and is a Swiss ETA 2982A2, as used by many brands and that will make servicing easy in future.  It is all working beautifully, including the quick set date.   The case is pretty free of marks, but the bracelet has light marks from being worn and not having been polished.  The bracelet is quite long and our sister website,, may have extra links if required.  The bracelet has been cleaned in our ultrasonic bath.

This watch will be supplied with the original inner and outer presentation boxes, papers and receipt and our Certificate of Authenticity.

This watch has been checked against the Watch Register and has not been reported as lost, stolen or implicated in fraud, and a copy of that certificate will also be included.
