Ruhla/Seebach has already been a center of the watch and clock industry
and of precision mechanics for 140 years. In 1862 the brothers Thiel
founded a metal goods factory and twenty years after they began with
the production of pocket watches. In the course of time the company
advanced to one of the largest and most important clock manufacturers
From this successful traditional enterprise three electronic developers have founded the HKW-Elektronik GmbH.
