A. Lange & Soehne showcases its new models through a tour
March 14, 2012: Following a successful start at Geneva’s SIHH watch fair, A. Lange & Söhne is presenting its new models in their own seven boutiques across the world, which started from February and will be going up to May 2012.
From 11 to 19 February, the new releases collection were on show at the A. Lange & Söhne boutique in Dresden. Further venues and dates for the three-month tour are Tokyo (24 February to 4 March), Seoul (26 March to 1 April), Shanghai (9 to 13 April), Hong Kong (16 to 22 April) and then, on the occasion of their store openings, Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
The 2012 collection was received at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie with great enthusiasm. The central theme this year is the Lange 1 watch family, headed by the Lange 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar. With two large complications and a new type of instantaneously jumping month ring, it demonstrates once again the innovative potential of the manufactory. With a newly developed movement, the reworked Grand Lange 1 exhibits elegant proportions.
In addition, a luminous Lange 1 Time Zone in white gold commends itself as the perfect travelling companion. The Datograph Up/Down illustrates that a timepiece widely considered perfect can still be improved. It has grown to 41 millimetres and incorporates an extended power reserve and a power-reserve indicator. Finally, the Saxonia Thin, introduced last year, and with a height of just 5.9 mm, is the thinnest Lange watch, and now also available in white gold.
