About the company

The clock factory was founded in 1947 in the city of Senden in Bavaria near Neu-Ulm by Erich Rittinghaus and Gustav Eiffert. At its best, the company employed up to 2,500 people and produced up to 32,000 watches daily. The company is particularly famous for its travel alarm clocks from the brands Europa, Ducado and Deluxe. The German company Junghans has produced the clockworks for wall clocks. The company was sold in December 1988.
One of the two founders, Erich Rittinghaus, was awarded the Federal Cross of Merit First Class in 1967 and became an honorary citizen of the city of Senden. The street where the former factory building of the watch factory stands has been named after him.
In 1991, it was discovered that the company had ‘discarded’ toxic waste through old well shafts. Chemicals such as cyanide or copper sludge polluted groundwater for years. Therefore, the company was closed in 1993 and the former factory site was converted into the Senden business park.
