Information about the German clockmakers Lenzkirch

The German Lenzkirch clockmaking concern was founded in 1849 by Eduard Hauser and Ignaz Schopperle (who was a mechanical organ maker) in the town of Lenzkirch in the Black Forest, originally making movements to be sent out to clockmaker's for the final finish.

By 1865, new financial backing allowed the company to grow considerably and complete clocks were now made within their own factory. They became a part of the Junghans business in 1929.
