German oak replaces the mahogany and Bakelite is used instead of brass for the case and the cardanic system; the dial is varnished instead of silvered, a steel band replaces the chain and the already thinner plates are held in place by only three pillars: German chronometer makers such as Wempe or Lange and Söhne had a difficult time around the end of World War II.
