Introducing two special Lange watches: the Lange 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar Handwerkskunst and the Saxonia Outsized Date limited edition

LANGE-1-TOURBILLON-PERPETUAL-CALENDAR-HANDWERKSKUNST-282291

At the opening of Watches&Wonders, Lange introduces two limited editions, the magnificent Lange 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar Handwerkskunst as well as the Saxonia Outsized Date.

Lange 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar Handwerkskunst

Lange has just unveiled two new models at Watches&Wonders, dubbed Asia’s mini-SIHH, which just opened today in Hong Kong. The highlight is the Lange 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar Handwerkskunst.

Using the Lange 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar as the base, the Handwerkskunst edition has the additional, elaborate detail characteristic of the Handwerkskunst series, like last year’s Zeitwerk Handwerkskunst for instance.

The dial is solid white gold, and decorated in tremblage and relief engraving. And the numerals of the signature Lange big date are hand-painted, a first for Lange.

Turn it over and the special decoration which distinguishes the Handwerkskunst edition is visible. Both the cocks for the tourbillon and intermediate wheel are relief engraved, as is the gold portion of the gold and platinum rotor. Additionally, the bridges of the movement are decorated with solarisation, instead of the striping found on the regular edition.

And the watch has one more detail to distinguish it: the Lange branding as well as case and serial numbers on the back are all hand-engraved.

Only 15 of the Lange 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar Handwerkskunst will be made, with a retail price of €300,000 (~US$405,400), including 19% German VAT. That is a €30,000 premium over the regular Lange 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar in platinum, shown below for comparison.

Also presented for the first time at Watches&Wonders is the Saxonia Outsized Date in rose gold. This uses the cal. 921.4 Sax-O-Mat movement first used in the original Langematik with oversized date.

In addition to the large date, the other notable feature of the Sax-O-Mat is the zero-reset seconds – pull out the crown and the seconds hand jumps to 12 o’clock for precision time setting (hence the “O” in Sax-O-Mat).

Limited to 25 pieces in rose gold, this is priced at €29,000 (~US$39,200), including 19% German VAT.

Both this and the Lange 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar Handwerkskunst will be available only at Lange boutiques.
