Since March 2016, Lange, a Saxony precision watchmaking brand, has begun a tour of the new 2016 masterpiece. In late June, all 7 new Lange masterpieces including DATOGRAPH PERPETUAL TOURBILLON, RICHARD LANGE JUMPING SECONDS, GRAND LANGE 1 MOON PHASE ‘Lumen’ and SAXONIA MOON PHASE will arrive in China, and will be held in the theme event of ‘Robot Master Touring the World’ Shanghai (June 22 to June 27) and Beijing (June 29 to July 3) are all available.
At the Geneva Haute Horlogerie Salon held in January, the Lange showroom summed up the basic features of the Saxony precision watchmaking brand and the characteristics of the new masterpieces with ‘MECHANICAL MASTERS’. These new watches all reflect Lange’s profound technical foundation, scientific mind, superb aesthetic cultivation and consistent enthusiasm for the mechanical world.
Seven new watches (from left to right): SAXONIA MOON PHASE, SAXONIA THIN, RICHARD LANGE JUMPING SECONDS, DATOGRAPH PERPETUAL TOURBILLON, LANGE 1 TOURBILLON PERPETUAL CALENDAR white gold with grey dial style, LANGE 1 white gold style, GRAND LANGE 1 MOON PHASE “Lumen”
DATOGRAPH PERPETUAL TOURBILLON
This year’s 1:50 large model standing in the center of the Lange showroom in Geneva’s Haute Horlogerie is based on Saxony’s latest masterpiece, DATOGRAPH PERPETUAL TOURBILLON, limited to 100 pieces.
Combining three complex devices and five additional functions, this unique Lange watch is not only technically superior, but also sophisticated in layout and clearly displays information. Three complex devices include: a chronograph equipped with a column wheel, a precision jumping-indicator, a flyback function and a classic Lange calendar display, a perpetual jump calendar with a moon phase display and a patented stop-second tourbillon. The L952.2 movement, composed of 729 parts, is of course a big watchmaking challenge, and the process of modification and assembly of the watch also requires professional skills. Only top watchmakers can overcome obstacles and make individual installations interact perfectly.
RICHARD LANGE JUMPING SECONDS
Limited edition of 100 RICHARD LANGE JUMPING SECONDS cleverly integrates two major devices: one-second constant-power escapement brings extreme precision; the seconds jumping device ensures that the time display is clear and easy to read, and the large second hand moves forward 60 steps per minute in the slightest not bad. The watch also has a zero reset function: when the crown is pulled up, the second hand will jump to the zero position.
RICHARD LANGE JUMPING SECONDS is precise and classic in shape, highlighting the functional aesthetics of the dial structure. The silver-gray chronograph dial features a large seconds ring on the top, giving the seconds hand a special status. On the dial, there is a triangular window at the intersection of the hour and minute circles. When the power reserve is exhausted ten hours before, a red indicator will appear there to remind the wearer to wind the watch. RICHARD LANGE JUMPING SECONDS is a well-deserved celebrity work that combines cutting-edge technology, fun and classic flavor.
GRAND LANGE 1 MOON PHASE “Lumen”
Lange launched the GRAND LANGE 1 ‘Lumen’ in 2013. The translucent sapphire crystal dial presents the clever structure of the Lange large calendar display. The GRAND LANGE 1 MOON PHASE, which was released the following year, reproduces the moon by the moon phase display on the main dial, with an accuracy rate of 99.998%. Today, the GRAND LANGE 1 MOON PHASE ‘Lumen’ combines these two extraordinary designs into one, creating a GRAND LANGE 1 MOON PHASE ‘Lumen’ that combines a delicate moon phase display and a charming luminous large calendar display, limited to 200 pieces.
SAXONIA MOON PHASE
The acclaimed SAXONIA MOON PHASE is the first time in the Lange SAXONIA series that two charming displays of the moon phase and the big calendar are displayed simultaneously. These two elements are particularly noticeable on the simple surface of SAXONIA: the large calendar display is set below the 12 o’clock position, and the small second dial with the moon phase display in the upper half is set at the 6 o’clock position, and the two are visually balanced , Making this watch the best combination of exquisite practical functions and excellent design.
