Bonniksen, who registered the patent in 1892 in England. His intention was to create a compromise between the “expensive” tourbillon and a normal chronometer - and he actually achieved better results with his carousel than some of the tourbillons. In 1899 Richard Lange improved the design and received a protection of utility patents D.R.G.M 121267 for it. The escapement in a carousel with auxiliary seconds turns around itself in 52,5 minutes, and thus avoids the variation caused by gravity. The model shown here is the 12th carousel watch made by Lange & Soehne. Lit.: Detailed description and illustration in Reinhard Meis “A.
