Lot No. 171 (95th Auction)
Patek Philippe, Genève, Telequartz, Ref. MIC 30, Nr. 831326, Height 400 mm, circa 1983

Master clock system T3, consisting of time base, line modules and programmer with antenna, original instructions and comprehensive technical drawings - in 1983 delivered by Patek Philippe concessionaire Kreutler

The T3 system can be described as follows:
If two clocks show two different times, you do not know which one has the right time. Only if a third clock confirms one of the times the doubt is removed.
Three clock units separately count the time. Each one is equipped with a quartz - crystal oscillator and all electronic dividers. The results are then compared with each other in the control unit which is build in the time unit C. If one of those clock units shows a difference, this unit with the wrong time is automatically switched off.
To increase the precision the clock-system is synchronized each second by the time signal of the observatory Prangins Genève.
Only this system guarantees the highest precision and accuracy possible. The local times of eight different cities are shown on small dials.
