A. Lange & Söhne RICHARD LANGE “Pour le Mérite” – That´s the ultimate understatement for a connoisseur
A “simple” dial with three hands, no date; 40,5 mm white-gold case (looks like steel); limited to 218 pieces; sold for 81.300 Euro. Holy sh**! Let us turn the Lange around and discover its calibre L044.1 with fusée-and-chain-transmission.
The timepieces with the attribute “Pour le Mérite” have always represented the technological avant-garde at A. Lange & Söhne. Each of the four models launched since 1994 is endowed with a fusée-and-chain mechanism.
The Richard Lange “Pour le Mérite”, first introduced in 2009, exemplifies an ambitious tribute to precision in its purest form: the sole objective of its complication, discernible only on the movement side, is to improve rate accuracy.
The pink-gold and platinum versions, now sold out, are now being complemented with a 218 pieces white-gold edition featuring a black dial.
