A Lange & Sohne created a traditional three-hander, with a large sweeping seconds hand. Here, precision and finishing of the caliber L041.2 movement trade priority over all else.
Named after Ferdinand A. Lange's eldest son, the collection pays tribute to the man who is credited with, in 1929, realizing that adding beryllium to the nickel-steel alloy of hairsprings made them less susceptible to temperature changes, and more elastic. A patent was granted in 1930 for this change, and it can be said this discovery played a large part in pushing the concept of an observatory watch forward.
This watch, cased in white gold with blued hands and accents was introduced in 2013 and is available exclusively in A. Lange & Söhne boutiques.
The dial on this watch is made of argenté silver, and the case comes in at 40.5 mm in diameter, and is 10.5 mm thick.
All of the plates and bridges on this watch are made of untreated German silver, the balance cock is engraved by hand, and the 199-componnent movement is amazing to look at. This caliber uses a lever escapement and has a power reserve of 38 hours when wound.
