This is the time of the year every watch enthusiast is waiting for. Watches & Wonders 2021 has officially started and with it a plethora of new releases. Here at Mr. Ping Life we love complications and that is why today we are presenting you the latest release from A. Lange & Söhne.
When A. Lange & Söhne presented the TRIPLE SPLIT in 2018, it was lauded as a global premiere by the international trade press. The only split-seconds chronograph in the world to date that can measure additive and comparative times for as long as twelve hours. Now, to up the ante the watchmaker is releasing a new version with a pink-gold case and a blue dial.
The Lange calibre L132.1 housed in the Triple Split is a movement that stands out with its three-dimensionality, complexity, and architecturally pleasing design. It highlights the finissage that is typical of the individual Lange components. Overall, 567 parts are perfectly adjusted for flawless interaction. This complexity is not a show, it is mechanically necessary to enable this unique TRIPLE SPLIT function.
LITTLE LANGE 1 MOON PHASE
The LITTLE LANGE 1 MOON PHASE in its white-gold case is coated with dark-blue gold flux that shimmers with a copper hue. Featuring a white-gold moon that accurately orbits along its course beneath the iconic Lange outsize date. It is also available in a second version with a bezel set with 56 brilliant-cut diamonds that creates a radiant frame for the fascinating dial. The applied Roman numerals at 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock as well as the star-shaped hour markers between them are crafted from rhodiumed gold just like the hands.
The LITTLE LANGE 1 MOON PHASE display is calculated to remain accurate for 122.6 years. So once you wear it, you’re fine.
LANGE 1 PERPETUAL CALENDAR
The new LANGE 1 PERPETUAL CALENDAR is totally focused on the eponymous complication. Its integration into the prominent dial layout of the LANGE 1 was made possible thanks to a peripheral month ring created especially for this design. The new timepiece comes in pink gold with a grey-silver dial or – in a limited edition of 150 watches – in white gold with a solid pink-gold dial. The moon-phase display with an integrated day/night indicator is a further special feature.
The self-winding movement L021.3 is A. Lange & Söhne’s 67th manufacture calibre. Its technical features include a unidirectional winding rotor in 21-carat gold with an additional centrifugal mass in platinum, a power reserve of 50 hours, and a cam-poised balance that runs with a frequency of 21,600 semi-oscillations per hour.
