A. Lange & Sohne is known for its unparalleled craftsmanship and high level of perfect craftsmanship, and it specializes in unique versatility and refined sanding. This year, the brand once again launched a new model—Triple Split watch. This is the first mechanical timepiece around the world that can be used for 12 hours of timing.

Amazing work of the brand—Triple Split-seconds technique
Triple Split-seconds watch measures up to 12 hours of extra and comparison time. In the Triple Split-seconds device, the end wheel adjustment of the multiple mandrel configuration is more elaborate on craftsmanship and patience.
When the measurement time starts, the pointers run simultaneously. After pressing the chasing button, the three blue steel hands stop running and show the segmentation time, while the other pointers continue to run. If pressing the chasing button again, the three blue steel hands will catch up with the still running pointer and measure the time in the meantime.
In this watch, the three pairs of chronograph hands also have a fly-back function. Therefore, during the measurement process, the chronograph function can be reset and immediately restarted by pressing the chronograph button, making the operation more convenient.

This case of watch is crafted in 18K white gold with a polished finish bezel and a brushed finish around the side for a refined and minimalist look.

On the silver-gray dial, there are almost four small dials that arranged in an orderly arrangement, leaving more space for the dial. and the entire dial looks tidy in this way.
The three blue steel chasing hands are in sharp contrast to the chronograph hands. Both the hour and minute hands have the luminous effect, and the small details are designed to ensure clear reading time. And the Split-seconds function of this watch has increased about 24 times.

Engraved with the logo of brand, the 18K white gold crown features a non-slip texture offering the easy adjustment of this watch. On both sides of the crown are the timing start, stop and zero buttons. At 10 o’clock, a chase start and stop button can be set to perform long-time and multitask timing.

This Triple Split-seconds watch features a calibre L132.1 that is made by brand, which allows people to the observation of complex chronograph movements through sapphire crystal. Hand-stitched crocodile leather strap with 18K white gold pin buckle, which is engraved with the “LANGE”, showing a low-key and mature charm.

A. Lange & Sohne Saxonia Series Triple Split watches are limited that only 100 pieces, and the Triple Split-seconds function is one of the most complicated watches on the Geneva exhibition. Although this Triple Split-seconds chronograph looks complicated, it can be done with buttons in operation, which is very convenient.

On the black/brown gradient dial, a three-dimensional engraved rose gold Arabic block with a white fluorescent coating and a striking stick-shaped fluorescent pointer make the time indication clearer and more intuitive. At 6 o’clock, there is a pointer-type date display with an auxiliary tray. The eye-catching orange “1” stands for the first day of the month, which is clearly distinguished from 31, becoming a distinctive feature of the watch.

In the darker environment, the pointer and the time mark emit a luminous night light, which makes the surface more beautiful while reading.

In 2015, the top Swiss watch brand Patek Philippe ushered in the ref.5524 Complications Calatrava Pilot Travel Time watch with second time zone and local date display. As the brand’s first modern pilot watch, and the only one sport watch in the Calatrava series, it has attracted wide attention since its launch, at the same time, it has become the ideal wrist companion for business travellers. In 2018, Patek Philippe once again added two rose gold models to the Calatrava Flight Travel Time series, with a brown dial, it presents a black gradient effect. A unique watch that pays tribute to Patek Philippe’s traditional Pilot timepieces. Below, let’s take a look at it together: (Watch model: male 5524R-001;  female 7234R-001)

As one of the brand’s unique traditional functions, the Patek Philippe time zone watch has been the innovation pioneer of the time zone table from its birth to the patented quick-tuning dual time zone function. Adhering to the philosophy of “respect for tradition and innovation”, Patek Philippe with 175 year-old history has improved its original dual-time zone installation to make it even more perfect, so it won another patent in 1996. Pressing the two buttons embedded in the case allows the hour hand showing the local time to rotate forward or backward in units of one hour. At this time, the isolator separates the time zone device from the drive train, bringing unprecedented mechanical operation. The new model is decorated with a rose gold case, which not only retains the original sense of the tool, but also gives the watch a distinct luxury and classic taste.

Adjusting the simple second time zone display function, you just need to press the two adjustment devices on the outer edge of the left case, and the local time fluorescent hour hand will rotate clockwise in one hour (press the 8 o’clock device) ) or counterclockwise rotation (pressing the 10 o’clock device), and it does not affect the travel accuracy of the watch, which is more convenient and fast to use. (If you are in your original place, you can overlap the hollow needle with the hour hand.) It is worth mentioning that the dual time zone button is also equipped with a patented safety lock to prevent accidental misadjustment of local time.


In addition, the new Complications Calatrava Pilot Travel Time watch is the first model of the ladies (7234R-001), with a case diameter of 37.5 mm, it is also slightly larger for women, but the style of the Pilot Travel Time watch with larger size is enough to make the watch more attractive. Let women who love the aviator style enjoy their extraordinary charm.

As the German luxury watch brand, A. Lange & Sohne has always been very popular among consumers. The classic Saxonia collection adds SAXONIA MOON PHASE watch to the series. In addition to the inherent moon phase function, a practical big calendar is incorporated into it. The elegant and simple charm has left a deep impression.

Inspiration for the design of watch
In 1994, the A. Lange & Sohne Saxonia Calendar watch was born. Inspired by the 19th century, founder participated in the five-minute digital clock of the Dresden Semper Opera that is designed by his father-in-law.

Recombination of moon phase and big calendar 
As one of the most recognizable designs in collection, the Grand Calendar has witnessed the brilliant moments of each generation of brand. Moon phase represents the mechanical timepiece, which is one of the unique features of chronograph. Together with two functions in one watch presents a symmetrical way giving the new meaning of Saxony moon phase watch. The Saxonia moon phase watch inheriting from these two classic complex devices is more fashionable and elegant. Black dial is more refreshing and pleasing to eyes.

The Saxonia collection looks more modern: the minimalist dial design, the moon phase display window and the patented large calendar feature highlight the superior design of watch. The 18K white gold case is 40 mm, which is surrounded by polished brush that gives the watch a different look. A square large calendar adjustment button located at 10 o’clock is an easy operation and balanced aesthetics.

At 4 o’clock, a hidden moon phase adjustment button is designed. At 3 o’clock, the 18K white gold crown is engraved with the brand logo. And with a non-slip texture, crown facilitates watch expediently. Grand calendar stays at 12 o’clock and echoes the 6 o’clock moon phase dial making the overall design more elegant and neat. The chronograph dial is integrated with moon phase dial enhancing the viewing value of watch.

The inner precision movement is visible through the hollow case. The brand self-made L086.5 movement is hand-decorated and meets strict standards, which has a 72-hour power reserve ensuring the long-term companionship.

Engraved with the “LANGE” logo, the full-featured black hand-stitched crocodile leather strap is comfortable. The 18K white gold buckle is perfectly integrated with the same material case presenting mature and noble temperament.

Sum up:
The new watch inherits the simplicity and practicality of the series, and the craftsmanship reflects the superb watchmaking standards of brand, which are unforgettable.

How to choose a watch that worth collecting
There is an unwritten rule in the collection world: a rare number of watches are basically the best in the collection. For example, A. Lange & Sohne 1815 “Homage to Walter Lange” special steel watch for the commemoration of Mr. Walter Lange: only one piece in the world. After all, there are still very few brands that operate like this. Therefore, its uniqueness cannot be underestimated.

In fact, the 1815 “Homage to Walter Lange” series also has a watch that is worth collecting. This gold watch was issued to commemorate Mr. Lange, a total of 27 pieces. At present, high-value watches appearing in auctions was very rare in the past, and it is even rarer to survive. In addition to the above two factors, the particularity of the watch is also reflected in itself.

Like the stainless steel watch, this watch also has no chronograph, but it has a timing attribute that can be used to stop the second. With the button at 2 o’clock , the central large second hand will indicate the time in the shape of seconds. Although this feature is not an innovation of the watch, it reflects the heritage of brand.

The regular Arabic numerals, the track-style minutes and the simple small dials reflect the classical beauty of watch. Coupled with the blue steel hands of brand contrasts the white dial sharply.

40.5mm diameter case is made of rose gold or gold. Although the gold watch is a classic watch of brand, relatively speaking, the rose gold is more feminine and more fashionable. Due to the popularity of consumers, rose gold watches are relatively more popular, so the number of gold watches is relatively reduced. But sale is one thing, and collection is sometimes different.

The features show of A. Lange & Sohne 1815 Gold Watch
The polished gold case is surrounded by two brushing rounds. When plus the naturally curved lugs, the balance of the watch is very balanced. The brown crocodile leather strap is hand-stitched in order to make every watch comfortable to wear.
From the side, you can clearly see the details of the case. The gradation of polished and brushed is distinct. And the connection between the lugs and the case also has a unique concave transition, so that the watch has the sense of harmony.

Through the hollow case back, people can see the mechanical beauty of the L1924 movement. First of all, it is made of silver, gold, blue steel and blue of gems, as well as red gems. A variety of colors interlaced and orderly reflect a luxury feeling. Second, the complex but still hierarchical movement structure is eye-catching. Third, the excellent craftsmanship forms the shade of light and dark, which is classic and luxury.

The Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce series was launched in 2004, the bezel of this series watch is set with 46 diamonds. The name Luce (Italian: Light) is also appropriate. The Aquanaut Luce collection is available in a variety of versions, stainless steel, gold, and luxurious jewellery styles. Following Mysterious Black, Safari Brown and Glitter White, Patek Philippe launched the new “Misty Blue” wristwatch.

Following black, taupe and white, Patek Philippe adds a new option to the Ref.5067 Aquanaut Luce stainless steel watch – grey-blue, which is designed with a subtle difference that surprises the modern and youthful design. The dial features the iconic embossed Aquanaut collection for a casual look. Pairing well with the gold inlaid numerals and time markers, wide rod-shaped hour and minute hands. The date display window is set at 3 o’clock.

Inspired by the Nautilus design, the soft and rounded octagonal case has been carefully polished, and it has a satin-finished side. Equipped with a screw-in crown, the entire watch is water resistant up to 120 meters. Built-in E23-250 S C quartz movement, which is generally the same as the mechanical movement. The flawless top Wesselton diamonds meet the Patek Philippe imprint and even the strictest jeweler’s standards.

The grey-blue strap is made of a composite material that is very comfortable and it has excellent tear and abrasion resistance, at the same time, it is not sensitive to salt water and UV radiation. The strap is decorated with the same checkerboard embossed pattern as the dial and comes with a reliable folding clasp. It is reported that Luxury Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce “Misty Blue” 35.6 MM Stainless Steel Wristwatch For Women Ref. 5067A-025 is priced at 16,220.00USD.

The moon phase watch is a personalized watch with a moon phase display function.
Through the moon phase plate on the dial, people can grasp the changes in the moon each time, and it is very popular among people with extensive experience. Such as A. Lange & Sohne 1815 series month phase watch. But now I want to appreciate the other series watches of the brand — Saxonia collection, an annual calendar with a moon phase function watch.

Knowledge about how to choose a Moon Phase Watch
Moon phase functions are often placed in a special-shaped and semi-circular window. And this particular shape consists of a semi-circular arc and two small arcs. This well-designed shape is combined with the moon on the moon phase dial. Due to the function, it tells us more accurately the shape of the moon at the beginning or the end of a cycle.

Compared with the moon phase function, the almanac function of this watch seems to be more sought after. At the same time, this is a limited edition watch (only 25 pieces). And it is the first gray dial watch of brand with white hour markers and large calendar display window.

38.5mm diameter silver grey dial is 9.8mm in thick. The markers are white gold sticks that with the same material dots up them. Silver hands in sword shape reflect a simple and charm feeling.

The sub-dial is located at 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock, and 9 o’clock respectively, and the balanced layout provides perfect interpretation, which is the consistent feature of the A. Lange & Sohne watch. The date display window at 12 o’clock is particularly eye-catching on the dial. And such a unique design is also the breakthrough in the brand giving consumers more choices.

Faithful to the classic design, the watch features hour, minute, small seconds, almanac (month, week, date) and moon phase display. The date display only needs to be adjusted once a year at the end of February, while the moon phase display can run accurately for 122.6 years.

With patented automatic zero return device of the brand, the movement will pause just through pulling the crown. And the second hand is automatically zeroed to set the time conveniently and accurately.

Surrounded by screws, polished case is 18K white gold, which adds a vintage element to the watch.

Through the sapphire crystal case back, you can appreciate the precise operation of the movement. And the L.085.1 movement (30.4mm diameter in size and 5.4mm in thick) provides a 46-hour power reserve.

The strap of the watch is also very attractive: a bright blue alligator strap with an 18K white gold buckle securely ensures this watch stay at the wrist well.

Unknown Tips about enamel watch
Enamel was an original process of ancient Persian. At first glance, it has a porcelain feeling that belongs to both the jewel and jade.

Specifically, the enamel process is a mixture of metal oxides such as quartz. Then put in a container and add water to form a powder. Third, blended with oil to become a glass coating. Fourth, applying like a painting to a metal or porcelain. And the last, it is then fired in a kiln. So the utensils decorated with this material are enamel.

The enamel owns these characters: warmth jade, brilliance jewels and meticulousness of bone china. What’s the most important thing is that this material will not oxidize and fade, which has become a unique landscape in luxury watches.

At the end of the 15th century(Spanish and Portuguese navigators began the long journeys and adventures to explore the continents that were still unknown), the finest craftsmanship of enamel ushered in the most brilliant moments. In order to meet the needs of the era of great navigation, the craftsmanship of enamel has been widely used in the dial decoration of pocket watches.

When the enamel collides with the watch splashing the unique spark
Let’s take a closer look at A.Lange & Sohne’s watch—1815 TOURBILLON special edition. It is an extraordinary work that combines traditional craftsmanship with modern precision machinery technology.

The production of enamel dial requires approximately 30 manual processes. The red “12” marker (printed and fired) and other details independently show the traceability of brand to historical roots. Combination of blue steel hands, Arabic numerals and classic train track minute scales further highlights the classic style.

The overall design of this watch is clear and concise, but the large window at 6 o’clock reveals its complexity: a one-minute tourbillon overhanging under a black polished bridge. This tourbillon not only counteracts the effects of gravity, but also has two patents (In 1997, it was first applied to LANGEMATIK and the patented zeroing device in 2008 cooperated with the stop-second function of tourbillon to ensure the stop and set time of watch to the second).

39.5 mm diameter case (numbered 001/100 to 100/100) is made of platinum 950 forming a fascinating frame that complements the white enamel dial well.

Through the sapphire crystal case back, people can carefully observe the self-made L102.1 mechanical movement of watch factory with fine decoration and precision.
The precision movement is meticulously decorated and screws on the quadruple wheel bridge are fixed with gold sockets setting with diamonds and hand-engraved.

The black hand-stitched crocodile strap and the solid platinum 950 clasp give the user a comfortable experience.

It is limited edition and there are only 100 pieces. Don’t wait and hurry up to own one.
