The article gives an overview of the first optical theodolites, which marked a major milestone in the development and use of surveying instruments. Their appearance is connected to the name of the famous constructor Heinrich Wild and had a immeasurably positive impact on the entire industry of surveying instruments, that is still felt today. The purpose of the article is not commercial in terms of advertising of certain technical solutions of the manufacturer Wild (Leica), but an attempt to show the measurement technology that has dominated the previous century, through the lens of legendary T2 theodolite.
