The magnificent masterpiece from the manufactory Erwin Sattler
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.
