Response to Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ - and Reference Articles on GO

Since many of you asked about the Union prices, I decided to post them here, following the current price list 1/2004. AFAIK, these prices are valid in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, despite the different sales taxes in these countries. Yet the differences are not so large that it justifies the logistic effort to handle three different prices. For those of you ordering from overseas, however, it would make sense to have an eye on these taxes. Since they will be deducted from the list prices quoted when exported outside the EU, you can gain another two or three percent discount by purchasing the watch in the state with the highest sales tax. I believe, this is currently Austria, with 20% VAT, followed by Germany with 16%.

Please note: In 2004, the Glashütter Uhrenbetrieb announced that the brand UNION would be drastically reduced in both, production and line-up of its watches, in favour of the production of Glashütte Original watches. The hugely increased demand for GO watches, especially in Asia and America, made it necessary to shift resources from UNION to GO, to meet that demand.
Contrary to some rumours spread on the web, this does not mean that the brand UNION as such is discontinued! Its status will be that of a "hibernation", with only a few watches (the simpler models) still in production, but in a small series of a few hundreds each year. From time to time, new models will be added to the line.

So here are the prices, quoting the 1-2005 price list. The models that are still in production now are quoted in bold letters.

The differences between the prices for the silver dialled and the pilot versions is due to the Louisiana leather strap of the silver dialled watches, while the Pilot versions have calfskin straps. Additionally, the pilot dial versions have tang buckles, vs. folding clasps on the Klassik and Diplomat lines
