Standardized by the Navy High Command, these were issued to be used aboard various Naval Vessels. The Einheits Chronometer orignated from Lange and Wempe, the 2 major leaders in chronometer production of that time period. From the end of WW2 until the late 1990's, this standard 3 pillar chronometer was the basis for all chronometers by Wempe as well as Soviet producers.
This Lange & Sohne Chronometer is in SPECTACULAR functioning condition! It is EASILY the nicest I have seen of it's type, and is graded excellent to near mint. Coming complete in the ORIGINAL MATCHING Oak Box, they are quite rare in this condition.
This type is a detented chronometer, with a gimbaled black bakelite case, aluminum dial, and 3-pillar movement. Note that the original bakelite gimbal has a hairline crack, so it is currently mounted in a steel gimbal. The original bakelite gimbal will be included with the sale, if someone wished to switch it back. Features a 56 hour power reserve.
An AMAZING and 100% ORIGINAL addition to any collection or display! Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft Fw190, Me262, etc. , as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period.
