German luxury watchmaker A. Lange & Söhne has introduced three new watches from the Langematik, Saxoina and Cabaret Tourbillion lines.
Lange & Söhne timepieces are known with their precision and expert craftmanship. In Watches & Wonders week, Mehmet Çelik had written an article about A. Lange & Söhne’s watches in which he explained that the brand looks more like a stubborn and extremely talented person who never gives up and knows how to deal with any challenge. Later on, he introduced novelties of A. Lange & Söhne. Now as watch editors, we are excited about writing the new timepieces that the brand has just announced. Let us take a glance at these new three timepieces.
Our watches must be classic and understated in looks, sleek, useful, and essentially German in nature.Günter Blümlein
The precision of displaying time may be the first feature to be expected from a German brand, that is why, we can start the Langematik Perpetual line. In March 2001, when the Langematik Perpetual was first introduced, it was the first and only self-winding watch to be equipped with a perpetual calendar, the brand’s iconic large date display, ZERO-RESET function and a main corrector that advances all calendar indicators simultaneously. On the occasion of its 20th birthday, the model comes with the same meticulousness and in pink gold or white gold, each in a 50-watch limited edition.
In both versions, the blue dial is crafted from solid silver. The Roman numerals stand out against in the dark background. The large date display is most prominent as the most important element. The left sub-dial displays the day of the week, and the right sub-dial displays the month. Once the watch is correctly set, a manual adjustment of the date is not needed until the year 2100. The self-winding calibre features ZERO-RESET mechanism. When the crown is pulled, the balance wheel stops and the seconds hand jumps to the zero position. It ensures power reserve of 46 hours. The case has a diameter of 38.5 mm.
Saxoina Thin is a poetic watch. Undoubtedly, the timepieces were produced with German practically, yet this model also designed in a way that makes French aesthetics jealous. The watch in pink gold in a limited edition of 50 watches. On the solid-silver dial coated with blue gold flux, tiny copper-coloured particles create sparkling highlights. The design is quite delicate and does not feature a hand except the hour and minute hands. The case has a diameter of 40 mm and in 18-carat pink gold. Thanks to the characteristic camber of the strap lugs, the elegant watch ensures a perfectly snug fit on the wrist. The elegant appearance of the watch is completed with the rose gold prong buckle that accompanies the dark blue strap. When you look at the dial of the watch, you will see not only the time, but the sparkle of night. Remembering the gold flux production that gives this appearance was started in Venice in the 17th century, we are dreaming of this sparkle of stars in a Venetian night.
Cabaret Tourbillon Handwerkskunst
Cabaret Tourbillon Handwerkskunst combines the precision watchmaking craftsmanship of the Cabaret Tourbillon line with the trademark rectangular design of Handwerkskunst line. In 2008, the brand succeeded for the first time, to instantaneously stop the balance inside the rotating cage – and instantly restart it by pushing the crown home. Cabaret, which is the brand’s only rectangular design, hosted this technology for years. Now, limited to 30 pieces, Cabaret Tourbillon Handwerkskunst comes with an artistic aura. The three-part dial of the timepiece is made of solid white gold and is crafted in the manufactory. The inner area with the typical Lange outsize date is manually engraved with a lozenge pattern. The rhombus pattern is hand-engraved on the interior, which also includes the Lange large date display. The Roman numerals III, IX and XII, they stand in the outer zone of the dial. The three-part dial is separated by a thin line decorated with a Tremblage pattern. The dial is coated with a semi-transparent enamel layer that adds extra depth to the engravings. The result is this three-part dial. An aperture in the dial reveals the one-minute tourbillon which is suspended between two diamond endstones. All these details are completed with a black leather strap and a platinum butterfly strap buckle with grey contrast stitching. The watch has a power reserve of approximately 120 hours.
As Günter Blümlein said, these elegant watches are German in nature!
