A. Lange & Söhne completes Lange 1’s 25th anniversary celebration with the Lange 1 Tourbillon “25th Anniversary”.
In 2000, A. Lange & Söhne introduced the Lange 1 Tourbillon featuring an unexpected combination of a tourbillon, a large date display, a power reserve indicator, and a three-day power reserve movement. With the Lange 1 Tourbillon “25th Anniversary”, Lange 1’s 25th-anniversary celebration set is completed.
When the Lange 1 Tourbillon was introduced, it was described as “a watch made for special occasions”. Together with this model, A. Lange & Söhne moved from the 20th century to the 21st century and continued a tradition based on the “belle époque” in Paris.
In 2010, Lange 1 Tourbillon, part of the “165 Years - Homage to F. A. Lange” anniversary collection, was one of the first three watches with a case made of Honey Gold, a material exclusive to Lange only. While celebrating its 20th birthday in 2014, Lange 1 introduced the fourth model of the Handwerkskunts series with a platinum case, rare movement decorations, and a black enamel dial.
Like the other anniversary editions, the Lange 1 Tourbillon “25th Anniversary” also comes in silver/blue color theme. The 38.5mm diameter 18K white gold case features a monolithic silver dial and contrasting bluish steel hands.
One minute tourbillon, which can be easily watched from the dial, has a ‘stop-seconds’ mechanism. The patented system ensures that the balance inside the rotating tourbillon cage is stopped immediately.
The Tourbillon bridge, which is integrated into the dial, uses a black polishing technique. The tourbillon and the balance wheel cock, which can be seen through the case back, are also decorated by hand.
This precious watch is complemented by a hand-crafted alligator strap and an 18K white gold clasp, as in other models.
