Thanks Mike, for the link.
IMHO, a lot of multimedia efforts for just two watches in the collection available?
The author of the 'tradition' essay did a good job. He stressed the German roots of Kienzle a lot w/o really hiding, that Kienzle is now an Asian brand...:roll:
Its been almost two years and their site is still under construction? I doubt we'll see Kienzle.de come out with its own collection any time soon. The end of the 90s marked the end of an era in German watchmaking by one of the oldest and most venerable firms.
Now old Janne is seriously confused! I found www.kienzleuhren.de . Some of the watches have movements by ETA, or Eta with different modules. " Made in Germany". The "Edition Jakob Kienzle" seems to have some very nice watches.
And you guys tell me it is Asian? Are you sure? Or do we talk different companies???
There are three different companies following the disappearance of the old Kienzle. One is in Italy, the other is in Far East and a third is now under German ownership. The quartz watches were made in China and the new German company is coming out with a German only collection. The Italian brand uses Swiss ETA and quartz parts in its watches. Its an open question as to whether Kienzle will ever return to being a German brand again.
