THREE HOROLOGICAL MILESTONES - "165 Years - Homage to F. A. Lange"



On the occasion of the company’s 165 year anniversary in 2010, A. Lange & Söhne commemorated the spiritual legacy of company founder Ferdinand Adolph Lange with a trilogy of timepieces with exceptional complications and named it "165 Years - Homage to F. A. Lange". The individual limited models were available independently and only 21 sets consisting of the three timepieces "1815 MONDPHASE", "TOURBOGRAPH 'Pour le Mérite'" and "LANGE 1 TOURBILLON" were sold in total. All three watches carry the limited edition number 46 on the back and are made of 18K honey gold, a novel type of gold alloy of unprecedented hardness developed exclusively for A. Lange & Söhne. The set comes in an exclusive real wood case accompanied by a Lange book with the Lange guarantee seal, the limited edition number and the operating instructions for each watch.



This is only the second set ever to appear on the international auction market!
