Thread: Goldbühl?

  1. #1

    Default Goldbühl?

    I bought this West German 50's-60's alarm clock at a flea market for a buck after finding it in a box of junk. At that point, it wasn't working, but when I shook it a few times, of it went. Now, the only thing wrong with it is it's cracked glass. I really like the shape of this clock. Has anyone heard of it's maker, Goldbühl? Thanks!
    Regards.

    As far as I know Goldbuhl was the tradename of Fichter KG. They made lots of alarm clocks - I have a very fancy little clock, all gold (coloured!) and red swirls.

    Yes "Goldbühl" was the trademark of Fichter KG. "Goldbühl" is the name of a hill in Villingen/BF, were Fichter KG was located. (Goldbühl= golden hill)

    According the "lexikon" Fichter KG was founded 1949 and went bankrupt in 1976.

    TTT: The trademarks and history aof nearly all German clocks and watches of the time 1850-1980 you find in "Lexikon der deutschen Uhrenindustrie 1850-1980". A very useful book! See the review:

    TTT, actually, probably the best known clock by Goldbühl is a plastic type of alarm clock with
    a turning ballerina.

    Not allone Fichter made clocks with turning ballerinas. Several others too. But may be Fichter was first.

    That's right, Albra. But I meant exactly the clock Burkhard showed.
