TOURBOGRAPH PERPETUAL "Pour le Mérite"

Quintet of complications

The TOURBOGRAPH PERPETUAL “Pour le Mérite” is a unique combination of a fusée-and-chain transmission with a tourbillon, chronograph, rattrapante and a perpetual calendar. These five complications were first united in this wristwatch in 2017, limited to 50 timepieces in platinum. Now, the extraordinary timepiece is available in a limited edition of 50 watches in HONEYGOLD: the TOURBOGRAPH PERPETUAL HONEYGOLD “Homage to F. A. Lange”. Its black-rhodiumed dial is crafted in the ateliers of the Lange manufactory. It is also made of solid HONEYGOLD as evidenced by the raised numerals and the arced logo that contrast crisply against the dark background.

The calibre L133.1 movement is a masterpiece of peerless complexity: it is composed of 684 parts, one of which is the chain. From the design highlights to the sublime artisanship, it is a paragon of classic precision watchmaking. The details of the lavish movement decoration of the anniversary edition differ substantially from the 2017 model. Now, the surfaces of the bridges and cocks are granularly textured and endowed with black-rhodiumed inscriptions. The filigreed lines of the manually engraved chronograph bridge are black rhodiumed as well. Demanding the utmost in dexterity from the finissage specialists, the completion of the movement culminates in the time-consuming black polish of the tourbillon bridge.

We draw in towards the movement of the TOURBOGRAPH PERPETUAL "Pour le Mérite". Mystical close-ups of the movement and case follow. A huge pair of tweezers grabs a tiny pin that belongs to a tiny chain. More mystical pictures of movements follow. A tourbillon is inserted into the movement and vibrates. We flip over the case to the dial side of the watch and then back to the imposing movement side with the characteristic split-seconds clamp. After a few detail shots of the perpetual calendar indications, the watch finally presents itself completely in all its beauty.
