Founded by Karl Reichert in 1876, the optical-mechanical workshop in Josefstadt marked the humble beginnings of what would become a legendary legacy in scientific instrumentation. By 1900, the production had expanded, leading to the establishment of a factory building in Hernals. This pivotal move propelled the company into a new era, with production capacity significantly increased. By the early 1920s, the workforce had grown to include 500 skilled individuals. The legacy of ‘Optische Werke C. Reichert’ continued to flourish until the 1960s, leaving an indelible mark on the world of precision instruments.

This ‘C. Reichert, Wien’ Laboratory Microscope is more than a scientific tool; it’s a testament to the relentless pursuit of precision and excellence that defined the early 20th century.
