In 1941, A. Lange & Sohne began production of their caliber 48 watches starting with serial number 200,000. These movements had to be extremely accurate with daily deviation of less than one second comparable to the requirements for marine chronometers. These watches were tested by the German Naval Observatory. The present example is number 204402 and this is stamped on the case back, dust cover, and movement. This watch features a 35 hour power reserve indicator and seconds register on the dial.
