The Nicolas Mathieu Rieussec Seconds Chronograph was the inspiring example for the Montblanc Rieussec Chronograph. I have pictures for you showing the original chronograph from 1821/1822.

This is spectacular! Let me uncover present-day A. Lange & Söhne timepieces being photographed on the historic 1919 14/40 HP Horch four-cylinder engine and a 1936 Auto Union racing car Type C.
That´s no coincidence of course, since both entrepreneurs, Ferdinand A. Lange and August Horch can be deemed fathers of technical progress and industrial development in Saxony.
