Last year to celebrate the 165th anniversary of Lange, the firm unveiled the Homage to F. A. Lange trio comprising the Tourbograph Pour le Merite, Lange 1 Tourbillon and 1815 Moon Phase, each cased in honey gold, an alloy harder than regular yellow gold and also paler in colour.

Some may find the decoration overly elaborate and contrary to Lange convention. I agree, but like the resulting look. The Tourbograph in particular is a magnificent, impressive timepiece, while the 1815 is a charming timepiece. The Lange 1 Tourbillon is less appealing because of the small tourbillon. Enjoy the photos. – SJX
