Peter Heinlein
Research Project at the
Germanisches Nationalmuseum Nürnberg (Nuremberg)

A large research project is being conducted by the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in preparation of a special exhibition that is planned from December 2014.

Restorers, historians and scientists do research on early 16th century portable watches in close collaboration. Lead by the Germanisches Nationalmuseum and in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institut in Fürth, ground-breaking new research methods are being used – such as the 3D Micro-Computer-Tomography.

The non-invasive exploration of the objects with CT technology allows for examination of the movements and materials used without any changes to the historical pieces.
