RICHARD LANGE TOURBILLON "Pour le Mérite"
Inspired by the claim to scientific precision
With a fusée-and-chain transmission and a one-minute tourbillon, this watch incorporates two of the most effective complications that increase rate accuracy. Thanks to the patented stop-seconds mechanism, the tourbillon – and with it the entire movement – can be stopped and set to one-second accuracy. When it is not needed for the reading of the hour, an auxiliary pivoting-dial segment affords a view of the tourbillon. Between 6 and 12 o’clock, it pivots back to complete the hour circle with the numerals VIII, IX and X.
