Luxury Watches: Every year watch industry professionals gather
in Geneva, Switzerland to attend a little event called The Salon
International de la Haute Horologerie, otherwise known as SIHH. The
main focus of SIHH is for brands to unveil their newest treasures to
the world. It is quite an exciting time for watch enthusiasts, industry
insiders, as well as retailers. This is the chance to see what is new,
and what the trends will be.
One of our favorite watch manufactures, A. Lange & Sohne, has
already unveiled their amazing new masterpieces : The Richard Lange
Pour le Merite and The New 1815.
Pour le Merite
This new model is dedicated to precise time keeping with exceptional
complications in the heart of the piece. Not only is this piece
exquisitely finished with simplistic design and elegance but part of
its heart features Lange's own fuse-and-chain transmission, which
contains 636 individual parts alone. With a case size of 40.5
millimeters this watch is available in a limited edition of 50 watches
in platinum and 200 watches in pink gold.
This classic three hand watch with its manually wound movement is the
perfect essence of an A.Lange & Sohne classic timepiece. Named
after the birth year of the company founder Ferdinand Adolph Lange,
this piece exudes everything that represents the company. From its
simple dial to its ever so intricate movement, everything is hand
polished, engraved, and put together. With a case size 40 millimeters
this watch is available in yellow gold, white gold, pink gold, or in a
limited edition of 500 platinum pieces.
