The 40mm case is crafted from platinum 950, with a black solid silver dial that infuse the watch with a stylish elegance. The surface has a three-layer design and a small seconds dial at 6 o’clock reminds people of Ferdinando. Adolf. A legendary pocket watch from Lange.
In 1843, Lange, then 28, wrote to the Saxony government expressing his ambition ‘to create a simple and perfect watch masterpiece through his own research and efforts.’ In the letter, he outlined plans to produce pocket watches in Saxony. Two years later, he set up his new watch factory and gradually realized his dream. Glashütte was transformed from a former mining town into a hub for fine watchmaking.
Until Lange laid the cornerstone for the brand in the international market with innovative timekeeping functions, pocket watches with jumping seconds, permanent springs, and clock timekeeping devices, he had been focusing on making simple pocket watches. Through continuous design improvements, Lange’s work has reached a level of outstanding and reliable precision, which has led to a steady rise in the company’s business. The best example is the 3/4 splint, which went through several stages of development and was officially launched in 1864. The 3/4 splint stabilizes the operation of the Lange movement, while exhibiting the unique style of Saxon watchmaking.
The new generation of Lange watches are also equipped with this important component, whose extraordinary style and design elements are clearly visible under the sapphire crystal case back.
