RICHARD LANGE "Pour le Mérite"
Mechanical finesse and superb refinement
The salient technical hallmark of the Richard Lange “Pour le Mérite” – and of all “Pour le Mérite” models since 1994 – is a fusée-and-chain transmission. Its most important parts are visible through the sapphire-crystal caseback. Apertures in the three-quarter plate reveal the 636-part chain, the blocking mechanism for the winder and the ratchet wheel under which the fusée and the planetary gearing are located.
