Starting on 16 January 2017, A. Lange & Söhne is presenting seven new products on the occasion of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in Geneva.

This year’s highlight is the TOURBOGRAPH PERPETUAL “Pour le Mérite”, which brings together five traditional mechanisms in one watch: fusée-and-chain transmission, tourbillon, chronograph, rattrapante function and perpetual calendar. The product family of this highly complex classic also features the new 1815 ANNUAL CALENDAR with a manually wound movement and analogue date, weekday and month, as well as a moon-phase display.

With a chiming movement that acoustically signals the time in ten-minute intervals, the ZEITWERK DECIMAL STRIKE makes time audible in a new way. Its case is made of honey gold, used exclusively by Lange.

At the beginning of December 2016, A. Lange & Söhne presented the new LANGE 1 MOON PHASE with a day/night indication. With the LITTLE LANGE 1 MOON PHASE, it has been provided with an elegant companion in pink gold featuring a guilloched, argenté-coloured dial.

The SAXONIA family is growing with the addition of two new models with a mother-of-pearl dial. This product family is also complemented by a LANGE 31 version in white gold with a grey dial, which has a power reserve of 31 days and a patented constant-force escapement that provides uninterrupted operation.

About A. Lange & Söhne
Dresden watchmaker Ferdinand Adolph Lange laid the cornerstone of Saxony’s precision watchmaking industry when he established his manufactory in 1845. His precious pocket watches remain highly coveted among collectors all over the world. The company was expropriated after World War II, and the name A. Lange & Söhne nearly vanished. In 1990, Ferdinand Adolph Lange’s great-grandson Walter Lange had the courage to relaunch the brand. Today, Lange crafts only a few thousand wristwatches in gold or platinum per year. They are endowed exclusively with proprietary movements that are lavishly decorated and assembled by hand. With 59 manufacture calibres developed since 1994, A. Lange & Söhne has secured a top-tier position among the world’s finest watch brands. Brand icons such as the LANGE 1 with the first outsize date in a regularly produced wristwatch and the ZEITWERK with its precisely jumping numerals display, rank among the company’s greatest successes. Sophisticated complications such as the LANGE 1 TOURBILLON PERPETUAL CALEDAR, the ZEITWERK MINUTE REPEATER or the TOURBOGRAPH PERPETUAL “Pour le Mérite” reflect the manufactory’s determination to achieve ever-new pinnacles in horological artistry
