165 Years – Homage to F. A. Lange Collection

A. Lange & Söhne 2010

Lange & Söhne : Tourbograph « Pour le mérite »/2010

Three exceptional timepieces demonstrate the capabilities of A. Lange & Söhne. With a special collection of exceptional complications, A. Lange & Söhne commemorates the spiritual legacy of the founder of Germany’s precision watchmaking industry. Presented in a novel gold alloy of hitherto unmatched hardness, the trilogy consisting of the Tourbograph "Pour le Mérite", the Lange 1 Tourbillon, and the 1815 Moonphase manifests the horological heritage of Ferdinand Adolph Lange enriched with contemporary ingenuity and artisanal virtuosity.

The capabilities of the manufactory are expressed by all three models with a novel case metal developed exclusively for Lange. With a Vickers hardness of over 300, the 18-carat honey-coloured gold exclusively developed for Lange is about twice as hard as other gold alloys.
