“What you can’t buy, you simply have to do it yourself”, was Heinrich Sattlers motto. Erwin Sattlers grandfather was horologist and patented on the 4th of March 1903 a desk or shelf clock with perpetual calendar.
About 60 years after Heinrich Sattler’s invention, in 1958, founded his grandson Erwin Sattler (meanwhile also a horologist) his own clockmaking manufactory in Gräfelfing near Munich. At that time he placed great value on the finest workmanship, highest precision and timeless aesthetics, all values that are still on top of the performances of the manufactory. In the style of that time, the high-quality wall- and table clock cases were carved and gilded by hand. Viola Sattler, Erwin Sattlers wife and artist in the family, painted different models by hand and created detailed individual pieces.
