The Hamburg American Clock Company -
HAC was founded in Germany, 1873 by Paul Landenberger and Phillipp Lang. Initially the company was known as Landenberger & Lang Uhrenfabrik, in 1883 they changed their name to Hamburg Amerikanische Uhrenfabrik / Hamburg American Clock Company (HAC). The crossed arrows became their trademark in 1892, around the same time that they began to produce finished clocks, to be exported to Great Britain and North America. The company grey significantly in the early 1900s and by 1930 they merged with another clockmaker, Junghans.
