Stichwort: Napoleon und die dezimale Zeiteinteilung

Am 22. September 1792 rief der Nationalkonvent in Frankreich die Republik aus und schuf noch am gleichen Tag eine neue Zeitrechnung: Ab dem 1. Vendémiaire III (22. September 1794) wurde die dezimal gegliederte Tageseinteilung eingeführt, die auch eine dem entsprechende Dezimaluhr vorsah. In Artikel 11 des Kalendergesetzes vom 4. Frimaire Jahr II (24. November 1793) hieß es: „Der Tag von einer Mitternacht zur anderen ist in zehn Teile oder Stunden eingeteilt, jedes Teil in zehn andere und so weiter bis zur kleinsten meßbaren Einheit der Zeit. Der hundertste Teil einer Stunde heißt Dezimal-Minute, der hundertste Teil einer Minute heißt eine Dezimal-Sekunde."

Tourbillon Käfig

Tourbillon (franz. Wirbelwind)

Wenn sich also das Sekundentrieb mit dem Drehgestell einmal pro Minute dreht, dreht sich ebenfalls der Käfig einmal um seine Achse. Dadurch werden Schwerpunktfehler im Schwingsystem einer mechanischen Uhr kompensiert, da die Schwerkraft nun von allen Seiten gleichzeitig den Schwung von Unruh und Unruhspirale beeinflusst. Erfunden hat dieses der Uhrmacher Abraham-Louis Breguet, der im Jahre 1801 das Patent dafür erhielt.

Durch die Verwendung eines Tourbillons konnten ...
