Watch brand extraordinaire A. Lange & Söhne showed off a 1 of 1 stainless steel Homage to Walter Lange at this year’s SIHH. The watch will be auctioned off in Geneva by Phillips in May.
The watch features a stoppable sweep seconds hand and a black enamel dial in a stainless steel case. The center seconds is a jumping hand and a wonderful counterpoint to the sweeping sub-seconds hand. The caliber called L1924, an homage to Lange’s birth year. Other references will be produced in precious metals; yellow, white, and pink gold.
Why did I write about this?
- Black enamel dial, what what!!!
- My son is named Walter. All things Walter-related are good.
- That ridiculous dead-beat seconds hand. The most pointless complication man has yet conceived.
