The new Maxima Secunda model expands clock manufacturer Erwin Sattler's precision pendulum clock range "upwards". The idea of doubling the proportions of the manufacturer's previous flagship, the Classica Secunda 1995, preceded this complete reconstruction of an XL precision pendulum clock. The results can now be seen properly; the Gräfelfingen clockmaker has succeeded in creating such a monumental clock with a one-month power reserve. Equipped with all the same details which also distinguish its smaller siblings in the manufacturer's precision clock range, the Maxima Secunda, with its 1.5 second pendulum is set to become a pure breed precision pendulum clock. Therefore, for example, a temperature-compensated Invar pendulum with air-pressure compensation was used. Of course, all gear wheels have been geared and gold-plated as part of the sub-process. The Graham escapement, with its 20 toothed escape wheel, inhibits early expiration of the weight in conjunction with the adjustable pallets in the pallet lever. The body of the pendulum is designed as a classic double cylinder.
