, Movement No. 88369, Case No. 198507, Ref. 760.032F, Cal. L072.1, 41,5 mm, circa 2011

An important and extremely rare Glashuette wristwatch in near mint condition, regulator dial with pivoting dial segment and visible tourbillon - with original box, operating instructions, Lange-booklet and Lange-guarantee seal dated December 6, 2011

Case: 18k pink gold, sapphire glass screwed on back, "Lange" 18k pink gold deployant clasp. Dial: solid silver, argenté, window for tourbillon cage.

The three-part regulator dial of the RICHARD LANGE TOURBILLON Pour le Mérite was inspired by a precision chronometer crafted by Dresden master watchmaker Johann Heinrich Seyffert. An inimitable feature of this timepiece is the aperture in the subsidiary-seconds dial through which the tourbillon can be observed.
An aperture in the subsidiary seconds dial exposes the steadily rotating tourbillon. To assure the unambiguous readability of the hour, a segment of the hour dial bearing the numerals VIII, IX and X flips into view at precisely 6 o'clock. It retracts again at 12 o'clock, when the pivoting dial segment is no longer needed.
The patented stop-seconds mechanism can also be observed in the dial aperture. When the crown is pulled, a V-shaped arresting spring instantly stops the tourbillon. Developed by A. Lange & Söhne, this mechanism makes it possible for the very first time to block a tourbillon in any cage orientation and regardless of the angular position of the balance. This allows the time to be set to one-second accuracy.
The RICHARD LANGE TOURBILLON Pour le Mérite was launched in 2011.
Case: very good
Dial: as new
Movm.: as new, capable of running, cleaning recommended
