STREAM­LINED AP­PEAL

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style -

A. Lange & Söhne has marked the birth of founder Fer­di­nand Adolph Lange two cen­turies ago with a lim­ited edi­tion 1815 “200th An­niver­sary FA Lange” watch, cre­ated with a spe­cial sur­face fin­ish, a honey-gold case—one of Lange’s sig­na­ture al­loys—and a solid sil­ver dial. Com­posed of 188 parts, the man­u­ally wound cal­i­bre L051.1 has a power re­serve of 55 hours. The 40mm case is en­graved with the watch’s num­ber in the se­ries of 200. The 36mm Lit­tle Lange 1 gets two new mod­els with solid sil­ver di­als treated with a blue base tint un­der a thin layer of mother-of-pearl. The version with the pink-gold case com­bines pink-gold ap­plied in­dices and a sub­tly tex­tured beige calf­skin strap, while the white-gold model’s in­dices are in rhodium-plated gold and its calf­skin strap matches the blue of the dial. Both have an au­to­matic move­ment with a three-day power re­serve.
