Kundo company was organized in 1918 and was listed as a supplier of spare parts for the watch industry - it was engaged in one of osnovatelej Johan Obergfell (Johann Obergfell) from 1898. From the second quarter of 1923 they launched the production of annual hours of torsion, which then became the main source of income, as well as "made a name" of the company. Production of mechanical 400-day clock was stopped at the factory of the company until 1986. In the early 1990s, there was a merger of the company with another German manufacturer of hours, the "Gebrüder Staiger" and formed a new brand "Kundo-Staiger", but it did not last long and in 2003, the company and the plant closed.
