Jakob Kienzle

Jakob Kienzle was born on 12th April, 1859 in Schwenningen.

He was the founder of a major German clock producing factory in the town of Schwenningen, Württemberg.

Kienzle became a foster-son of Friedrich Mauthe after his father's early death and started to work in the Mauthe clock factory at the age of fourteen. After an apprenticeship in a colonial goods business in Triberg, Kienzle worked with Johannes Schlenker, a well known master clockmaker, married his daughter in 1883 and took over the clock making facility together with his brother-in-law, Karl Johannes Schlenker.

Jakob Kienzle died on 25th February, 1935.
