Anker is the trademark of the Andreas Huber Company. The full trademark “Reichskrone–Anker–Uhr” was issued on June 11, 1912.
Andreas Huber founded a small clock shop in 1856 in the city of München and in 1880 it was bestowed the title of “Court Appointed Manufacturer of Clocks” from the King of Bavaria. By 1888, the small shop had become the Andreas Huber Company and was located in the heart of München. Due to their reputation for high-quality production standards, the company was invited to participate in a competition to produce chronometric equipment for the München and Hamburg observatories.
In 1913, the company opened branch offices in Berlin and Hamburg. All business was suspended during World War I but by 1924 the company had so fully recovered that one of the Zeppelin airships was equipped with chronometers and instrumentation manufactured by the company and in 1936, the company received the timing contract for the Winter Olympic Games. Late in (1944-45) in World War II, the workshop, offices, and sales headquarters were destroyed. However, as soon as manpower and materials were available, the facilities were rebuilt on the original location.
