Dr.August Nagel began his camera design business in 1908 as Drexler and Nagel, quickly to become the Contessa Camerawerke a year later. In 1919, he bought the Nettel Kamera-werke and renamed the combined operation Contessa-Nettel AG. It operated under the Contessa-Nettel name from 1919 until 1926.

In 1926 Contessa-Nettel merged with Ica, Ernemann and Goerz forming the photographic giant Zeiss-Ikon.

Zeiss Ikon continued to produce camera series of Contessa-Nettel's and others before merging.

Contessa name used by Zeiss Ikon until 1960's.
