The Kieninger tradition began in the early 1900s when Joseph Kieninger apprenticed with a clockmaker. By 1913, his innovative style, attention to detail, and reliability of the products he created was fueling the growth of a company that was producing drives and timers for gas lamps.

In 1921, Kieninger moved his production to a factory near the Black Forest and started producing the clocks for which his name would become famous. Many clock technologies can be traced back to his inventions and refinements of clocks from this time. 

The company’s ownership passed to Kieninger’s son and brothers following his death, and the brand continued to make great strides. Progressively, women made up some of the 70+ employees in the late 30s, and by the early 1940s, the company’s products were being shipped abroad.

The Kieninger brand is still in great demand today. In 2012, two special models were created to commemorate the company’s 100th anniversary: a 30-day precision second pendulum regulator and a second indication tourbillon mantel clock.

What makes a Kieninger clock so special is it’s timeless yet modern sensibility. A Kieninger brims with technology that has always been ahead of its time, yet holds fast to the drivers and gears that have been designed to last a lifetime. Each product that bears the Kieninger name looks right at home in a stately manor house, or the most contemporary of dwellings. They are timeless works of art that can be passed down as heirlooms and they never fail to enchant those lucky enough to own one. It’s so easy to fall under the historic Kieninger spell.
