Friedrich August Adolf Schneider (1824-1878) was born in Dresden in 1824 and began his apprenticeship with Gutkaes in 1841. In 1845 Schneider decided to follow his friend and future brother-in-law Adolph Lange to Glashuette and be a foreman in his newly set-up watch manufacture. After working with Lange for 6 years, Schneider went on to start his own watchmaking company in 1851. He produced keywinding pocket watches at first but changed to winding crowns around 1865 when Lange's patented winding crown system was established. Schneider exported a large number of watches to the US; his local agent was Max Freund & Co. in New York. After Schneider's sudden death in 1878 his son continued the business. All in all the company produced about 3,000 pocket watches of the finest quality.
