Richard Lange Tourbillon Pour le Merite Platinum by A. Lange & Söhne
The "Richard Lange Tourbillon Pour le Merite Platinum" (ref. 760.025) is from A. Lange & Söhne's "Richard Lange" watch family. This edition is limited to 100 pieces. It features a dial in rhodium solid silver and is housed in a platinum case. This timepiece was designed for men. The round case has a diameter of 41.9mm and a thickness of 12.2mm. A transparent case back makes it possible to admire the movement.
The watch is driven by a hand-wound Lange L072.1 mechanical movement with a power reserve of 36 hours and displays for hours (off-centered), minutes (off-centered) and seconds (off-centered). As regulating organ, the movement makes use of a tourbillon which causes the balance wheel and the escapement to rotate slowly. In the days of pocket watches, the tourbillon increased the accuracy of the watch by preventing the minute components from working in the same orientation for a prolonged period of time. Today, the tourbillon mostly serves an aethetic and emotional purpose and is a testament of the manufacturer's watchmaking abilities.
The piece is carried on a black alligator leather strap with a platinum pin buckle. A. Lange & Söhne asks its official retailers to sell the watch at around 228'240 CHF. Please use the "Contact Shop" button to reach out to an official store of your choice for their offer."
