The Beyer Watch

The design of this watch emulates the giant timepiece that hangs outside the Beyer shop. It has served as a trademark for decades, and can be seen from a long way off on the Bahnhofstrasse.

Saxony’s path into the world of international watchmaking

03/18/2015

From 18 February‒14 June 2015, the Mathematisch-Physikalischer Salon at the Dresden Zwinger is presenting the special exhibition, “SIMPLE AND PERFECT. Saxony’s Path into the World of International Watchmaking” to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Ferdinand Adolph Lange (1815-1875), the founder of A. Lange & Söhne. Among the around 80 carefully selected exhibits relating to the history of precision watchmaking in Saxony are three timepieces from the Beyer Clock and Watch Museum.

These comprise the Pocket Chronometer no. 5 made in 1803 in Dresden by Saxon watchmaker Johann Heinrich Seyffert, the Marine Pocket Chronometer no. 2390 by Louis Berthoud from Paris as a comparison, and finally the Marine Chronometer, also made in Paris, created by the master clockmaker and chronometer specialist, Joseph Thaddäus Winnerl. Ferdinand Adolph Lange trained and worked for a number of years with Winnerl.
