Winterhalder & Hofmeier Clocks
The clockmaking firm of Winterhalder & Hofmeier has been considered one of the finest clockmakers from the Victorian era. Originating in Schwarzenbach in the Black Forest, Nicholaus Winterhalder began the family tradition of making quality clocks in the first half of the 18th century, with the company - Winterhalder Uhrenfabrik - being formally established in 1810 in the southern German town of Friedenweiler by Nicholaus’ son, Thomas. His sons, Matthäus, Karl and Linus continued the tradition. When a relative and clockmaker, Johannes Hofmeier joined the company in 1850, the company name of Winterhalder & Hofmeier was born, with factories in Friedenweiler, Neustadt and Schwarzenbach. It was from this date that the trademark stamp W & H Sch. was used.

Around the turn of the 20th century, W&H clock movements were often mistaken for English movements due to their remarkably fine quality. Despite this and the company’s reputation in both Germany and internationally for creating the finest hall, wall and mantel clocks, the firm ceased trading in 1937.
