The observation watch for the wrist
Right on time for the start of spring, A. Lange & Söhne presents a special edition of the RICHARD LANGE in white gold and with blued steel hands. From April 2013, this new varia-tion is available exclusively at the boutiques of the traditional Saxon watch brand.
The RICHARD LANGE pays tribute to Ferdinand A. Lange's eldest son. During his entire life, the long-tenured technical director of the manufactory focused on evolving precision watch-making on the basis of scientific research. The balance spring is a manifestation of what is no doubt his greatest achievement. In 1929, he recognised that the addition of beryllium to the nickel-steel alloy made hairsprings less susceptible to temperature fluctuations and simulta-neously more elastic. Richard Lange's insight, for which a patent was granted in the following year, resulted in a quantum leap in precision and expedited the development of a timepiece category that defines itself in terms of accuracy: the observation watch.
The RICHARD LANGE was inspired by the characteristic traits of its historic predecessor and re-interprets them with contemporary panache. With its white-gold case and the exquisite finissage of the movement, it is a very accurate observation wristwatch that befits our era. This special edition of the RICHARD LANGE is available exclusively through the A. Lange & Söhne boutiques. Only a few pieces can be handcrafted per year.
Following the vision of Ferdinand Adolph Lange to build the world’s best watches, A. Lange & Söhne strives for ultimate precision and explores new avenues in order to advance the art of fine watchmaking.Find out more >
