A Lange watch for kids raises money for charity

At this year’s The Kidz Horizon Appeal charity ball on 27 August 2011, a piece unique LANGE ZEITWERK in white gold with a grey dial was auctioned off for 138,000 Singapore Dollars (approximately 80,000 Euros), well above the retail price of a regular LANGE ZEITWERK. Proceeds from this auction will go towards helping children suffering from chronic diseases such as cancer or HIV.

The unique timepiece was created in memory of the late Mr. Duncan Wang, an American Chinese businessman and philanthropist who passed away at the age of 44 years in August 2009. The patron of The Kidz Horizon Appeal and passionate watch collector was a great admirer of A. Lange & Söhne.

Formed in 2004, the relief organisation raises funds for children suffering from chronic diseases such as cancer or AIDS/HIV whose parents are not in a position to afford the medical treatment they need. The highlight of the annual fund raising efforts is a charity ball is held annually at the Ritz Carlton Singapore.

The first ever Lange watch to be produced for a charity in Asia, the design of this unique version, showcasing dark/bright contrasts, is emphasised by a white gold case, grey dial and numeral discs with white numerals, a black crocodile strap, and the folding clasp, also crafted from solid white gold. A special engraving on its caseback bears witness of its uniqueness and the occasion.
