Ernst Kutter , born in 1824 in Sulz on the Neckar, was a versatile watch- and clockmaker who among others trained with Matthias Hipp in Reutlingen. He did not only produce pocket watches but also precision pendulum clocks which were used for example in the observatories at Neuenburg, Vienna and Geneva. Friedtjof Nansen used a marine chronometer made by Kutter during one of his polar expeditions. In 1904 Kutter transferred his business to two of his employees; he died in 1905. The shop in Stuttgart founded by his father-in-law founded in 1825 still exists today.
