With this tourbillon A. Lange & Söhne produced a wristwatch that - in its appealing design as well as its amazing functionality - perfectly reflects the company’s over 150 years of expertise in the creation of precision timepieces. In honour of the legacy of the company’s founder F.A. Lange, A. Lange & Söhne created a limited special series of 150 timepieces on the occasion of the 150th anniversary - a trilogy of "TOURBOGRAPH ‘Pour le Mérite’", "LANGE 1 TOURBILLON" and "1815 MONDPHASE". A new type of gold alloy significantly harder than other gold alloys - the so-called honey gold - was developed specially for Lange & Söhne to use for these watches.
The honey gold has a subtle warm hue to it & has a colour somewhere between white gold & yellow gold. With a Vickers hardness of over 300, this gold is about twice as hard as other gold alloys, making it more scratch resistant.
