Meet the Lange 1 Tourbillon Handwerkskunst

On October 24 of this year the iconic Lange 1 turned 20 (read our original story here). In advance of this milestone A. Lange & Söhne presented five unique Lange 1 ’20th Anniversary’ sets in a variety of case/dial variants, which consist of a 38.5mm Lange 1 and a 36.1mm Little Lange 1 (read about these watches by clicking here). But A. Lange & Söhne wasn’t quite finished with its tribute to the Lange 1 – the Saxon watchmaking company has now unveiled a new, limited edition Lange 1, and it is known as the ‘Lange 1 Tourbillon Handwerkskunst’.

A. Lange & Söhne has released the Lange 1 Tourbillon Handwerkskunst to pay tribute to the 20-year old Lange 1.

(One look at a selection of Bremont’s watches should be enough to convince you of the brothers’ irrepressible love of aviation.)

‘What about the De Ville Prestige and Hour Vision precious metal models?’ I hear you say. They are reasonably dressy timepieces but put up against similarly priced benchmark dress watches such as the A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia, Patek Philippe Calatrava or Vacheron Constantin Patrimony (gallery above), Omega’s offerings don’t really compare. You see dress watches are meant to ooze elegance with dainty precious metal cases that disappear under cuffs and, have highly decorated movements that are as beautiful as the watch’s dial.…
