Asia Preview Tour

In a recent issue of WatchTime, we took a peek at some century-plus of noteworthy timepieces from A. Lange & Söhne. Here are seven highlight pieces and the stories behind them.This pocketwatch is the second-most complicated timepiece ever made beneath the A. Lange & Söhne name. (The first is a modern-day wristwatch edition of the piece.) Its original owner, a Viennese named Heinrich Schäfer, paid 5,600 German marks to it in 1902, a sum that could have purchased a large house. Rather, he opted to get a huge dose of mechanical complexity. The A.Lange & Sohne Pocket Watches Price Replica is a grand complication at the strictest use of the expression: a watch with a perpetual calendar, split-seconds chronograph and minute repeater (additionally, it’s petite and grande sonneries). The 42500 also has a foudroyante (French for “lightning”) minutes screen, where the seconds hand spins round its subdial once each second, showing 1/5-second increments. The movement has 833 components, housed within an exceptionally decorated rose-gold case fitted using a seven-part enamel dial.
