Lange & Söhne Richard Lange Tourbillon Pour le Mérite

Posted by Bert on Apr 28, 2012 8:04:35 AM

True to its character, Lange & Söhne did not necessarily set out to create the year’s coolest variation of the tourbillon, but that is certainly the outcome. Technically a regulator/tourbillon, the dial features three intersecting circles, one of which (the hour dial) partly pivots out of sight for six hours at a time so as not to block the view of the escapement, and the bridge is hidden under part of the arc of the minute track. The brand says it created this variation on the tourbillon because “it is useful”, and so is the patented stop-seconds function, which is also a big draw for this piece. Lange will make 100 pieces in platinum.
