A. Lange & Söhne introduces Richard Lange ‘Pour le Mérite’ with white gold case and black dial

Rejoice A. Lange & Söhne aficionados! The Saxon brand has just revived the Richard Lange ‘Pour le Mérite’ in a limited edition of 218 watches. Each will boast a white-gold case, black dial and a black alligator strap. The watch was announced at the brand’s dealer conference in Dresden, though we have a suspicion that this watch was originally intended to be unveiled at the formerly annual Watches & Wonders (now biennial).

If you missed getting the pink-gold and platinum references, this is quite possibly your last chance at this timepiece.

The A. Lange & Söhne Handwerkskunst watches

‘Handwerkskunst’ is the German word for artisanship, and A. Lange & Söhne first introduced watches with this distinction back in 2011. Handwerkskunst watches have dials and movements that are finished with rare and complicated engraving techniques, and are some of the Saxon watchmaker’s most desirable timepieces.

Ever since its rebirth, Lange has taken the watch world by storm. Pictured here is the brand's new manufactory.
