Hi, Friends and Sinner's,
today a big local newspaper ("Frankfurter Rundschau")from the factory city of SINN, release an article about the company. Because my english is to bad I have translate it "by machine" means "Personal Transloter 2006", hope you can read and understand it. It is not perfect (we all know it) but better than my english. Here it come, have fun and a lot of informations:
With special clocks for the economic success
The company meaning into sleigh home sells noble creations to functions and elegance to all the world/connection more extremely
For 45 years this has produced clock families-does meaning into sleigh home special: They go on diving journey and fly to space. They show Finanzdienstlern three time zones simultaneously, football fans betray the playing time, and they are in demand like never before.
This watch is not big Frankfurt -- ". But she does not seem small. " Lothar Schmidt fetches a "financial centre watch" from her case which was developed especially for Frankfurt bankers and stockbrokers and has explained with few words the secret of him mind chronographs. They agree on the incompatible one: The most impossible things can do and she manage to look also good. Not in the marktschreierischen meaning though. The aesthetics are a reason besides the functionality why a small family enterprise with about 60 employees which operates hardly advertising and exclusively sells his watches ex works sells 12 000 copies worldwide per annum and fetches an award after the other one. The "financial centre watch" had been honoured by the line of business with the "golden balance wheel" only in spring. What head of the company Schmidt charming particularly finds: She has a very discreet bread roll function and when pulling up the owners can practise the "Geldzähl movement".
At the beginning flying stood. The pilot's and flying instructors' Helmut sense out of Frankfurt sleigh home started with 1961 to produce plane watches of its own. Alone by verbal propaganda under the planes the business developed. When meaning 1994 submitted the business to his successor at the age of 78 years he had to produce twelve employees, a considerable reputation -- and a lot debts. The engineer Lothar Schmidt, signing clerk, production leader and one of the development heads of the Swiss noble brand IWC got in and got into debt to under the brim. "One sleeps badly ", first he says. "But then, it only comes on. " Today, the banks which refused him help at that time want to come again into the business with the prospering enterprise. What Schmidt declines with a fine smile.
Calibrated on 16 000 metres
The time of the innovations started with the take-over. Schmidt and his team conceived clocks which join in all thinking up cash adventures. The UX with a case made of submarine steel is out for a theoretical depth of 16 000 metre calibrated and function for certain in the area between minus 20 and plus 60 degrees. A Ölfüllung takes care that she can be read from every angle under water without dazzling.
Dog sledge leaders in Alaska and space traveller exposed load tests to meaning clocks. An adventure watch gives it to a march scale, temperature indication and date advertisement with integrated Kompass, pulse and breath point. Scales can alternatively be read in litre per kilometre or in gallon per mile for gas consumption on the back. And the watch shines at night, too. The ideas come from the enterprise themselves. Coulter engineers and a physicist are found in the staff. The climate in the inconspicuous, two-storey flat making near the Nidda is good. "We value it, that the work is fun ", the boss says most highly. He provides that most modern tools always you work with and the jobs are equipped well.
The watchmakers take responsibility. A piece of paper is enclosed in any sold watch with the name of the employee who has put the watch together and carried out the final check. The trainees at meaning have Bestnoten, and, Schmidt is proud of it, everyone was taken till now.
This also shall remain that way. Coulter new models came to the market to the anniversary year 2006: which shows football chronograph, the playing time and after-season included, sapphire crystal which is the model making chronograph pushes and mar-resistant and is sold only until December 2006 the space chronograph 142 St II in limited edition the classic beautiful "active uhlan expensive" one with three dials, the UX for maritime units. It is said despite high prices the demand increases. Also with the ladies. The booster detonation for lady clocks came, for peace this one from Frankfurt businessmen a present jumpers looked. The meaning watch looked far too discreet. Schmidt and his people made a model sparkle with brilliant. Anne Lorenc
For my opinion, it contains some mistakes. But anyway.
