The new models 2012 are on the road: from February to May they will be presented in all seven A. Lange & Söhne boutiques. In Saxony, watch connoisseurs and friends of the brand will be the first to experience the latest highlights of Lange’s watchmaking artistry at close quarters. From 11 to 19 February, the new releases collection will be on show at the boutique, near the Church of our Lady (Frauenkirche) in Dresden. Further venues and dates for the three-month tour are Tokyo (24 February to 4 March), Seoul (26 March to 1 April), Shanghai (9 to 13 April), Hong Kong (16 to 22 April) and then, on the occasion of the openings, Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
The central theme this year is the LANGE 1 watch family, headed by the LANGE 1 TOURBILLON PERPETUAL CALENDAR, with two large complications and a new type of instantaneously jumping month ring. With a newly developed movement, the reworked GRAND LANGE 1 exhibits elegant proportions. In addition, the luminous LANGE 1 TIME ZONE is now available in white gold. The DATOGRAPH UP/DOWN illustrates that a timepiece widely considered perfect can still be improved. It has grown to 41 millimetres and incorporates an extended power reserve and a power-reserve indicator. Finally, the SAXONIA THIN, introduced last year, with a height of just 5.9 millimetres the thinnest Lange watch, is now also available in white gold.
