Advancement of precision: Tourbillon with stop seconds and ZERO-RESET – A. Lange & Söhne


THE ADVANCEMENT OF PRECISION Over 200 years ago pocket watches
became key timekeepers. Due to their unchanging
position in the pocket the rate accuracy
was often affected by an invisible unbalance. Thanks to the invention
of the tourbillon the unbalance
was finally compensated for. But for over 200 years it was impossible
to precisely set the watch. Until we stopped the tourbillon. 2008: Patented
stop-seconds mechanism And until we reset
the seconds hand. 2014: ZERO-RESET function
