A. Lange & Söhne unveils one more surprise to celebrate the 20 years of the A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 replica : the Lange 1 Tourbillon Handwerkskunst, a special 20-watch edition where the epithet “Handwerkskunst” remarks the exceptional craftsmanship required to create such a masterpiece.
Slightly recessed into the main dial, a small subdial in black solid silver indicates the continuous seconds. The numerals of the Lange outsize date are grey on a black background instead of the usual white. The hand-wound calibre L961.3 movement is finely decorated with the silver-made three-quarter plate featuring two cutouts revealing the identically decorated twin mainspring barrel.The precious black enamelled dial – framed by a 38.5 mm platinum case – creates the ideal background for the mirror-polished hour markers and the matching hands in rhodiumed gold.
The tourbillon cock, a distinctive element of the best fake A. Lange & Sohne Lange 1 Tourbillon watch, is finished with the same polishing technique. The tourbillon bridge, crown-wheel and intermediate-wheel cocks are beautifully hand engraved. Seven screwed gold chatons as well as two diamond endstone bearings for the tourbillon constitute the finishing touches.
The Lange 1 Tourbillon Handwerkskunst (ref. 704.048F) will be available exclusively from A. Lange & Sohne copy watch boutiques.
