Enigma Timeline
Under construction

This page will eventually hold a timeline with all Enigma-related events, from the invention, to WWII. Below is currently an attempt to create a usable timeline. Please note that the contents of the table are by no means correct and are therefore subject to changes in the future. Eventually, it is our aim to make all items in the table clickable.

Patents
From the timeline above, it seems that most patents were filed before WWII and that no new patents were filed during the war. This is in fact not true, as the developer Heimsoeth und Rinke had an active track record of developing new products and improvements, most of which were secretly filed during the war. At the end of the war the secret patent registers were either destroyed or confiscated by the enemy.
