IBM Model 780 Time Clock, circa 1950

The Walter Weissig GmbH moved into the second rear courtyard of 34 Obentrautstraße in Berlin-Kreuzberg in 1949.  The time clock on display here was installed at the entryway shortly thereafter.  The time cards needed for restocking each month could at first be easily reordered but eventually their production was discontinued. One last card was consequently scanned to make a digital copy and reprinted over and over again. Although the technology of time recording had become progressively better, the clock was used until the company moved at the end of September 2020.
