A Lange & Sohne

Dato­graph Per­pet­ual Tour­bil­lon

ZbBZ (Singapore) - - 好时光 WATCH OUT -

The lat­est mas­ter­piece from this Sax­ony man­u­fac­ture pairs three com­pli­ca­tions with five sup­ple­men­tary func­tions. The dato­graph des­ig­nates a col­umn-wheel chronograph with a pre­cisely jump­ing minute counter, a fly­back func­tion and the typ­i­cal Lange out­size date. The Per­pet­ual, the middle el­e­ment of the watch’s name, refers to an in­stan­ta­neously jump­ing per­pet­ual cal­en­dar with a moon-phase dis­play. All in­di­ca­tions of the per­pet­ual cal­en­dar switch in­stan­ta­neously and pro­vide un­am­bigu­ous read­ings. As for the tour­bil­lon mech­a­nism, for the first time in a Lange tour­bil­lon with chronograph, the bal­ance beats at a rate of 18,000 in­stead of the con­ven­tional 21,600 semi-os­cil­la­tions per hour. Con­se­quently, stopped times can be dis­played with an ac­cu­racy of one-fifth of a se­cond. The black solid-sil­ver dial of the new model con­trasts beau­ti­fully against the 41.5mm plat­inum case. Pro­duc­tion is lim­ited to 100 watches.
