Richard Lange Referenzuhr - limited & numbered edition of 75 pieces. The RICHARD LANGE “Referenzuhr” salutes the Time-Keeping Service of the Mathematics and Physics Salon in 18th-century Dresden. The city’s Court Clock-makers and Inspectors were responsible for determining the correct time. The current time was measured astronomically and then a precision pendulum clock was set accordingly. With the aid of a few particularly accurate pocket watches, the correct time was further distributed down the line. Watchmakers, scientists, and railroad officials were among the key users of this high-precision service.

- Zero-Restart oversized small seconds sub-dial with blued steel hand situated at the left side of the dial. The seconds hand can be reset to zero by pressing the button at 2 o'clock.
