A. Lange & Co., Glashütte

, Movement No. 1092, Case No. 1092, 43 mm, 55 g, circa 1854/1855

A gentleman's early and important Glashuette keywind pocket watch with pin-pallet escapement from A. Lange's experimental period

Case: 18k gold. Dial: enamel. Movm.: bridge movement, screw compensation balance.

This is one of the rare pieces that illustrate the technical and historical development of watchmaking in Glashütte. Movement and case number 1092 by A. Lange & Cie. refer to the year of production around 1854/1855, the ebauche, however, was probably made around 1849. The brass lever that was used here is still the long version and the wheel is made of polished steel. The compensation balance has two adjustment screws. The whole escapement construction is still in an early stage that would develop into a 2/3 plate with the gold escapement only a few years later.
Case: very good, some parts replaced
Dial: very good
Movm.: very good, capable of running, cleaning recommended
