SIHH 2019: Lange & Sohne Langematik Perpetual Honey Gold. A quick review

Avatar
amanico
The Langematik Perpetual was a superb watch, and one of the most desirable perpetual calendar since its introduction in 2001. 18 years after, Lange comes back to this watch in a different metal version, honey gold. Honey gold was used by Lange since 2010, with, among others, the 1815 Moon Phase Homage to F.A Lange. This Langematik Perpetual Honey Gold is the 8th watch to use this metal which doesn't only have a very special hue, somewhere between yellow and rose gold, but which also is harder, due to its .....Story

SIHH 2019: A review on the Lange & Sohne Richard Lange Jumping Seconds in White Gold.

Avatar
amanico
With the unveiling of the Richard Lange Jumping Seconds in white gold / black dial, this year, I smiled. I smiled because when Lange introduced the first version of this watch in 2016, with its platinum case and its silver dial, I wrote: " The only thing I would have liked is a black dial, something more powerful, strong looking, maybe, or an enamel dial. " The 2016 version: Lange made my wishes come true. We don't have an enamel dial, that's fine, but we have a superb black dial made of silver, while the .....Story

SIHH 2019: Some live pictures and thoughts on the Lange & Sohne Lange One 25th Anniversary.

25 years, a big anniversary, better, a Jubilée for the brand re birth and the Lange One which quickly became an iconic watch. So, no wonder why this reference has been chosen for a series of commemorative pieces. Lange is working from the " basic " Lange One to issue, each month till October a new " Anniversary " watch. So, this Lange One 25th anniversary has a 38, 5 mm case, 10, 7 mm high, in white gold...Story

SIHH 2019: Lange & Söhne

I will very quickly kill the suspense: the Lange & Söhne SIHH 2019 collection was not the most spectacular of the decade. I want to say: all the better. I find that a brand of the size of the Saxon Manufacture doesn't need to release loads of novelties to draw the attention. Do not forget, its annual production is around 5,000 pieces...Story

Hands on review of the Lange & Söhne Datograph Up / Down Lumen

Avatar
foversta
It is maybe a way to illuminate the long winter nights but Lange & Söhne is used to unveil its "Lumen" watches at the end of the year. The Datograph Up / Down Lumen, which was presented in the last quarter of 2018 is the fourth watch of its kind from the Saxon manufacture and is, like its predecessors, very successful. The name Lumen (not to be confused with the old appelation Luminous) applies to watches that undergo a special treatment of the dial. The traditional dial is replaced by a semi-transparent .....Story

Lange und Sohne Langematik Anniversary. It could have been for ten years in my collection...

Avatar

If only it didn't left me in some sad circumstances. I was hunting this watch for several years before being able to find one in Paris, on the 7th of November... 2008. I was totally crazy for that Langematik, for some good reasons: Its 37 mm case, which is big enough for me, a platinum case which offers a nice density, the superb enamel dial with its gorgeous Red XII and a very pleasant depth and warmth, and a nice looking automatic movement with a three quarter rotor...Story

Hands on review of the Lange & Söhne 1815 Tourbillon enamel dial

Avatar
foversta
The Lange & Söhne 1815 Tourbillon was unveiled 4 years ago. It seemed to be the most simple tourbillon watch from the Saxon manufacture and yet it was characterized by the joint presence of two important technical features: the stop-tourbillon mechanism that had been introduced with the Cabaret Tourbillon and the zero-reset mechanism which is used by the Lange & Söhne automatic movements but which had been featured for the first time in a handwind movement with the Richard Lange Referenzuhr. As always ... ...Story

Hands on review of the Lange & Söhne 1815 Homage to Walter Lange

Avatar
foversta
The SIHH 2017 was marked by the announcement of the passing of Walter Lange, who was much more than the instigator, with Günter Blümlein, of the rebirth of Lange & Söhne. Walter Lange was a spiritual guide, a link between the brand's past and its present, and a great vector of passion and knowledge for the next generations. Nothing pleased him more than passing on his knowledge to the young watchmakers during their training phases in the different workshops of the manufacture. He also embodied a certain .....Story

Hands on review of the Lange & Söhne Triple Split

Avatar

There is a special relationship between Lange & Söhne and the chronograph calibres it designs. In my opinion, the chronograph is its favorite complication because very rarely a High Horology brand has reached such a level of excellence and control in the development and execution of these movements. Don't be wrong. A chronograph caliber belonging to the top of the watchmaking pyramid is extremely complex to develop, much more for example than a minute repeater (what some watchmakers can confirm)...Story
