Lot No. 86 (95th Auction)
A. Lange & Söhne, Glashütte B/Dresden, Movement No. 5373, 185 x 185 x 185 mm, circa 1944

A ship's chronometer of the German Navy with 56h power reserve "Deutsches Einheitschronometer"
Case: oak box, military engraving "M 3079", swastika, bakelite gimbals and bowl, case with sealing lugs. Dial: white. Movm.: brass movement, steel band/fusee, spring detent escapement, "Griesbach"-chronometer balance with 4 weights and 2 screws.

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. Lange and Söhne produced about 800 of this chronometer type since February 1943, with numbers between 5001 and 5870.
