A dial close-up: light discoloration on the dial is not depending from the low quality of the picture but from the alteration of the original finish on the silvered dial.
It wasn't necessary to re-silver it, anyway. The dial was in pretty good shape considering the age of the clock (at least 40 years old).
Under the dismantled dial: the extreme simplicity of the movement together with the great care used during construction are very visible. Screwed jewels, five spoke wheels and hand finish of all surfaces, bridges and screws are typical of the excellent Lange & Söhne production.
The back of the movement with the large balance wheel bridge in the middle.
Another particularity of the is a steel strip used to replace the fusee chain. It's an unusual but functional solution. We don't believe it has been adopted by a repairer but by the original manufacturer. We still don't know if Lange & Söhne ever adopted this arrangement and would appreciate any suggestion about it.
Two pictures of the great balance wheel. There are four temperature compensation weights and two weights for time regulation.
