August K. Richard Gläser (born on March 24, 1856, died on March 6, 1928 in Dresden) was a maker of pocket watches in Glashütte. At the time his father Friedrich August Gläser, a watchmaker by training, owned a factory producing watch and clock hands in Glashütte. Friedrich August Gläser had two sons and a daughter who died as a child. His son Paul took over Gläser’s factory while Richard - after his apprenticeship and travels (which led him for example to Hamburg Altona to work with renowned chronometer maker Theodor Knoblich) - established his own manufactory for producing pocket watches in Glashütte. More than 2,000 first-rate watches were produced from 1885 to 1920, some of them with complications. Gläser was famous for his lever chronometers which he produced in the tradition of fine Glashütte timepieces. The production numbers started with 8000 and went up to over 10000.
