Want to buy a vintage German watch and came across one on Ebay. It says it's a Kienzle Automatic from around 1945. Does anyone know anything about Vintage Kienzle's and whether it would be a good buy? I have never heard of them and want to buy it for my boyfriend who is German. At the moment it's only on 10 british pound. :thanks

Without having more criteria and pics (face and movement) I can`t judge if it is worth an "investment", A kienzle automatic dating back to 1945 is a bit strange, I would assume that it is a hw Kienzle or it is not made in 1945.

Kienzle started in 1822 as a small clock manufacturer in Schwenningen (now Villingen-Schweninngen), in the heart of the German Black Forest. The Black Forest has a long tradition in watchmaking (clocks especially). Kienzle became during the decades the largest German clock producing company and one of the biggest clock and watch producers worldwide.
Kienzle is still in business, but portfolio and owners changed.
