A. Lange & Söhne Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este

From 25 to 27 May 2018, A. Lange & Söhne will be supporting this traditional and exclusive event for the seventh time.

On the final weekend in May, the world’s most beautiful historic cars will be on show in the spacious grounds of the Villa d’Este on the banks of Lake Como. This year, the motto of the event is “Hollywood on the Lake”.

As the main partner of the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, A. Lange & Söhne has been supporting this three-day event since 2012. This year, the company is once again donating the coveted trophy for the finest car in the competition. The winner of the most prestigious category, “Best of Show”, will be presented with a Lange 1 Time Zone “Como Edition” that has been made specially for the occasion, with the coat-of-arms of the competition adorning the hand-engraved case back of the special-edition model in white gold. On the city ring of the time zone watch, Central European Time is represented by Como.

For Lange CEO Wilhelm Schmid, this commitment reflects the company’s deep-rooted passion for sophisticated mechanics and classic elegance. "Both in car construction and watchmaking, inventive spirit and inventiveness have repeatedly set milestones in terms of technology, design and craftsmanship. The enthusiasm for these achievements connects collectors and connoisseurs of precision mechanical timepieces with lovers of classic automobiles.”
