LANGE 1 TOURBILLON PERPETUAL CALENDAR awarded "Watch of the Year 2013"
The “Watch of the Year 2013” award was conferred yesterday evening at BASELWORLD, the largest international trade show for the watch and jewellery industry. The LANGE 1 TOURBILLON PERPETUAL CALENDAR in platinum by A. Lange & Söhne won this award in the men's watches category. Lange CEO Wilhelm Schmid was delighted to accept the prize.
The choice was made by the readers of the weekly newspaper “Welt am Sonntag” and of “Armbanduhren”, a special-interest magazine. Only just launched last year, the top-tier model of the eminent Saxon manufactory competed with 150 men's models of other watch brands and ended up being the undisputed winner of the watch contest.
The LANGE 1 TOURBILLON PERPETUAL CALENDAR unites two classic complications in the iconic LANGE 1 style. Thanks to an ingenious arrangement of the calendar displays around the time indication, it presents a host of information in a superbly legible format.
