A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar
The Lange 1 is to A. Lange & Söhne what the 911 is to Porsche: an icon of design that transcends time. One of four timepieces first presented after the brand’s re-establishment in 1994, the classic Lange 1, with its asymmetric, overlap-free displays and iconic outsize date, receives additional prominence with the inclusion of perpetual calendar and tourbillon mechanisms. To accommodate the new additions without sacrificing design, Lange watchmakers moved the months to a chic peripheral ring. The "hidden" tourbillon, meanwhile, is fully visible through the sapphire-crystal caseback. While the platinum version was introduced at the 2013 SIHH, it’s newly available in pink gold at A. Lange & Söhne’s Madison Avenue boutique in Manhattan.
