RICHARD LANGE TOURBILLON "Pour le Mérite"
Inspired by the claim to scientific precision
The dial design of the RICHARD LANGE TOURBILLON “Pour le Mérite” was inspired by precision chronometer No. 93 crafted by Johann Heinrich Seyffert, a gifted watchmaker who in the late 18th century established the fundamentals of precision timekeeping in Saxony. Alexander von Humboldt, a natural scientist, expressed particular appreciation for his work and relied on his timepieces to calculate the co-ordinates of his locations during his expeditions and perform many scientific measurements.
