FAN OF THE BRAND: Dr Christo­pher Khng, eye sur­geon FAVOURITE NOV­ELTY: 1815 An­nual Cal­en­dar in rose gold , $56,700

FIRST IM­PRES­SIONS

The owner of ex­quis­ite time­pieces such as the Lange 1 Time Zone in A. Lange & Sohne’s pro­pri­etary honey gold, Dr Christo­pher Khng was “im­me­di­ately drawn” to the brand’s 1815 An­nual Cal­en­dar when he set eyes on the au­to­matic watch. “It is ab­so­lutely stun­ning. I re­ally like the use­ful com­pli­ca­tions of day, date, month, moon­phase and an­nual cal­en­dar.”

IN THE DE­TAILS

“The de­tails on this watch speak of qual­ity, and well thought-out de­sign. For ex­am­ple, if one needs to ad­just the time, date, day, month and moon­phase af­ter a pe­riod of non-use, it would be sim­ple to do so be­cause the watch has a func­tion where, af­ter ad­just­ing the time, one just needs to press a pusher that will si­mul­ta­ne­ously ad­vance the day, date, month and moon­phase ac­cord­ingly. It looks good from ev­ery an­gle. One thing I en­joy with ev­ery Lange watch is to turn it over and ad­mire the well-fin­ished de­tails of the move­ment.”

WEARS WELL

“It wears re­ally nicely on the wrist, with won­der­ful pres­ence, and, like the other Lange watches I own, is re­ally com­fort­able. De­spite the num­ber of com­pli­ca­tions the move­ment houses, the 1815 An­nual Cal­en­dar is quite slim (with a thick­ness of 10.1mm). The blued hands set against the ar­gente dial and rose gold case – mag­nifique!”
