The origin of the star as the Mercedes trademark goes back to Gottlieb Daimler himself. On a postcard of Cologne and its neighbouring town Deutz, where Daimler works from 1872 to 1882 at the gas engine factory started by Nikolaus August Otto, he marks his house in 1872 with a four-point star. He writes to his wife, "A star will rise from here and I hope it will bring blessings to us and our children".

Gottlieb Daimler at an advanced age. By the end of 1883, he and Wilhelm Maybach develop a small, high-speed internal combustion engine with an uncontrolled hot-tube ignition system ready for patenting. The next test engine, referred to as the "Grandfather-Clock Engine" due to its resemblance to pendulum clocks, is the final breakthrough in 1884 and appears in various stages of development in the so-called “Reitwagen”, in the Daimler Motor Carriage and in various boats.
