Notes

Anton Winterhalder founded the business in Schwarzenbach, Germany in 1810 taking Anton Hofmeier into partnership in 1850, with the company finally closing upon the death of Linus, last son of Winterhalder, in 1930. The movements and clocks made by this firm are often believed to be the among the best produced in Germany at this time.
