The original factory was built after the land was acquired by Franz Eduard Weidenmüller in 1887, he constructed the large paper mill between 1906-1907 and was opened as paper mill FE Weidenmülle. The factory was so large it even had it's own railway track leading directly to it as well as workers houses built up around. The factory became VEB Government owned business during the days of the GDR and was still used as a sawmill up until it's complete closure in 2017.
Each clock has been fitted with a new high torque AA battery quartz motor, the casings and dials will show signs of cosmetic wear in the form of cips, dents, rust spots and some crazing to the paint.
