THE RICHARD LANGE

THE HOMMAGE WATCH TO RICHARD LANGE CAUGHT MY ATTENTION ON THE LAST BASEL 2006 FAIR

The watch is a homage to Richard Lange, the eldest son of Aldophe and whose creative mind gave rise to numerous interesting horological features in Lange watches, including a patent for the alloy for the balance spring. As the enthusiasts know, for a long while, there was only one supplier to the nivarox spring, but a few years ago, due to development efforts of Lange as well as a few other manufactures, Nivarox is no longer the sole supplier to the industry. This watch features such a spring. (if the reader remembers, the first Lange to feature this was the Double Split)

With 199 parts, and 26 jewels, this is a beautiful movement. The Richard Lange Homage measures 40.5mm at the case, and is availalbe in YG, PG, and Platinum
