I close the presentation of the 3 pieces celebrating the 175th anniversary of the opening of the first F.A.Lange workshop in Glashütte with the Tourbograph Perpetual Honeygold. The best for last? Not quite. The most complicated one, for sure. But is it really my favorite watch from this trilogy? No, and I'll tell you why...Story

Hands on review of the Lange & Söhne 1815 Rattrapante Honeygold

After last week's presentation of the 1815 Thin Honeygold, I would like to introduce you to the 1815 Rattrapante Honeygold, which is also one of the three watches celebrating the 175th anniversary of the opening of Ferdinand Adolf Lange's first workshop in Glashütte. I won't keep the suspense going for too long: the 1815 Rattrapante Honeygold is for me the most interesting piece of this trilogy. In fact, this watch is really good news. I remember that when the 1815 Rattrapante Perpetual Calendar was presented .....Story

And why not hope for the come-back of the Cabaret ?

foversta
As the proud owner of a pink gold Cabaret, I was wondering if it would not be appropriate for Lange & Söhne to reintroduce it in its catalog. The simple Cabaret was present in various versions in the Saxon Manufacture's offer between 1997 and 2010. The Tourbillon Cabaret (which I must confess I have never liked) had a much shorter life between 2008 and 2013. As for the Moonphase Cabaret, it was removed from the catalog in 2009...Story

On December 7, 1845, Ferdinand Adolph Lange founded his first workshop and started his business in the small city of Glashütte. History was on the move and this workshop would later become one of the most prestigious watchmaking manufactures, thus contributing to the economic influence of Saxony. To celebrate the 175th anniversary of this important date, Lange & Söhne presented a few weeks ago 3 watches in limited series that pay tribute to Ferdinand Adolph Lange. And of course, the choice went to 3 watches .....Story

Hands on review of the Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk Minute Repeater in white gold

Avatar
foversta
Lange & Söhne unveiled this year during the digital edition of Watches & Wonders a variation of the Zeitwerk Minute Repeater in a white gold case, while the original model, presented in 2015, was in platinum. As this is a minute repeater watch, the change in case material compared to the original watch is far from insignificant. This material has a significant impact on the quality of the sound rendering of the minute repeater mechanism. This is the reason why such a change was expected...Story

Hands on review of the Lange & Söhne Lange One Timezone 2020

The new Lange & Söhne Lange One Timezone was introduced in early summer. It is an evolution of an existing model from 2005 with a new movement and some small display improvements. Let's be clear: from an aesthetic point of view, the Lange One Timezone 2020 is not radically different from its predecessor, but the Saxon manufacture took the opportunity to unveil a white gold version with a black dial that I like very much. Maybe that's the real novelty at the end of the day.....Story

Hands on review of the Lange & Söhne Odysseus in white gold

Avatar
foversta
The Odysseus Datomatic in white gold is one of the two new watches presented by Lange & Söhne in April as part of the 2020 edition of Watches & Wonders. The release of such a watch is hardly surprising. If the first Odysseus Datomatic was the first steel watch from the Saxon manufacture to join the permanent collection, no one expected that the following ones would be produced with the same material. The reasoning is simple: steel must remain exceptional in the brand's catalogue and if the inaugural .....Story

The world is changing and Lange & Söhne confirms it.

The recent release of the new version of the Lange One Time Zone is really interesting to analyze. I will not speak about the watch ifself because I have not had the opportunity to see it yet. It falls into the category of watches which seem to be very close to their original versions but which in fact change a lot. We will see! On the other hand, what is fascinating is the message contained in a sentence of the official presentation: "The new Lange One Time Zone now connects the world more closely than ever .....Story

Watches & Wonders 2020: Lange & Söhne

Avatar
foversta
Forewords: I'm doing something I don't like ie speaking about watches I haven't seen... but we don't have any other option! Not surprisingly, Lange & Söhne presented few novelties in the very particular context of this 2020 edition of Watches & Wonders. It was to be expected. In any case, the manufacture from Saxony produces few watches and the number of novelties remains limited each year .....Story
