It’s hard to say what is the luxury horology brand A. Lange & Söhne more famous for: its extremely limited series or highly complicated watches. The latest model introduced by A. Lange & Söhne at the SIHH exhibition turned out to have broken all the records in terms of complications. The series is limited by only 6 examples.
What is so complicated about it?
Every single manufacture has its own understanding of the complexity of the mechanism of the watch. But the following complications integrated into The Grand Complication by A. Lange & Söhne are recognized all over the world. Instead of a basic minute repeater (though no minute repeater is truly basic), there is a large and small strike; instead of a chronograph, or even a split-seconds chronograph, there is a monopusher split-seconds chronograph accurate to 1/5th of a second; the perpetual calendar is accurate until year 2100 without adjustment and advances all the indicators (except for the moon-phase) at midnight.
Perfect exterior of The Grand Complication
Much attention is paid to the way the watch looks. The creations of A. Lange & Söhne have to be irreproachable. Such refinement can be embedded only in the pink gold case. This masterpiece watch has a five-part white enamel dial, a railroad track minute scale and gold and blued-steel hands. Each of the six pieces has a red-brown hand-stitched alligator strap.
