Looks a bit like a Max Bill (by Junghans). Haven't seen a Kienzle with that dial. Not sure it is authetic though.


Kinzle was founded in 1822 in the South of Germany (Schwenningen am Necker) by Johannes Schlenker. In 1883 his grandchild, Karl Johannes Schlenker and Karl Johannes`brother in law, Jakob Kienzle, started to produce alarm clocks and regulateur movements off the shelf. The anual output was about 20.000 wall clocks and pendulum clocks. Already in 1893 162.000 watches ans alarm clocks were produced.
In 1897 Jakob Kienzle became the sole owner and the name changed into KIENZLE.
For more than a 100 years Kienzle specialised on the (mass) production of clocks (alarm clocks, automotive clocks, wall clocks, style clocks, grandfather clocks, etc.) advancing to one of the leader companies in this sector.

Yes I've seen the Max Bill watches and I really like the design, shame I can't afford a watch like that just yet (still a student). I do hope this watch is authentic, I'm not a fan of non-original watches. Thank you both for your info so far.
