A Brief History of the Kieninger Clocks --------------------------------------- Joseph Kieninger established Kieninger clocks in June 1912, in Mönchweiler near St. Georgen. There, he built technical drives and timers which were mainly used for gas lamps to light the street. Unskilled workers, mostly farmers from nearby, produced the parts, and then skilled workers assembled the movements. Joseph Kieninger was from the beginning very focused on producing mechanisms of the highest quality and in fact before any mechanism left the factory Joseph personally inspected it himself. The reliability and quality of the products led to a an increase in demand for Kieninger clocks and by January 1913, the company employed 18 workers. In 1932 Kieninger started to produce precision measuring instruments for the company Carl Mahr in Esslingen. The requirement was for instruments with extreme precision and Kieninger were in a great position to be able to produce these. The extra work from this contract allowed Kieninger to stay in business during the Second World War as precision instruments were used in the production of armaments. In 1936 Joseph Kieninger died and the running of the company fell to the three sons and despite the difficult conditions created by the war the company continued to produce clocks of high quality and by 1939 was employing 78 people. Throughout the war period Kieninger continued to sell clocks to customers in both Germany and Northern Europe. https://www.glenbryde.com/a-history-of-kieninger/
