The Urania company for precision watches ( "Präzisionsuhrenfabrik Urania" ) was founded by Andreas Huber in Munich in 1865 and was the first German business to offer pocket watches with crown winding systems. Grand clocks were produced by order of King Ludwig II, and in 1880 the company was declared a purveyor to the court. After taking over management Huber's son Josef began making precision pocket watches in 1885. In 1910 Josef Huber turned to the production of chronometers and submitted watches in competitions of the Munich observatory and the naval observatory in Hamburg.
