A. Lange Sohne New Cabaret Soiree Watches in Diamonds

Oct 09, 2009
The illustrious watchmaking house A. Lange & Sohne is pleased to unveil two sparkling diamond-studded interpretations of its rectangular Cabaret watch.

The timing for the release of these variations is just perfect, since they are performed in tune with the enchanting colors of autumn.

These refined feminine interpretations of the advanced watch mentioned above, the Cabaret Soiree Jewelry watches, are animated by manual winding movements.

Sculptured in 18-karat white gold, the case of each timepiece demonstrates a bezel, paved with 70 round brilliant diamonds. The Cabaret Soiree watch cases are assembled with refined, yet durable dials, done with mother-of-pearl.

The amazing union of the gleaming nacre and gems definitely brings the Cabaret Soiree watch to the forefront of this iconic A. Lange & Sohne lineup. No matter what color of the watch a woman prefers, rose pink or silvery white, she will undoubtedly treat her wrist to the superb beauty of the nacre.

Each watch dial features A. Lange & Sohne's conventional alpha hour and minute hands, rendered in polished and rhodium-plated gold. Exposing the similar finish, the hour markers alternate Roman numerals with faceted gem-shaped indexes.

Atop the small seconds counter there is the Langes patented oversized date display. This sophisticated mechanism, which integrates twin numbered discs, made its original appearance on the brands famous Lange 1 watch, produced in 1994.

The date is set by means of a recessed push-piece, located above the winding crown, and the small seconds hand offers a hacking function. It implies, that pulling out the crown with the purpose of adjusting the time, makes the seconds hand stop. This feature makes the watch extremely easy to set.

The case-back of the Cabaret Soiree watch, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, is protected by a transparent flat sapphire crystal. This exhibition window enables the watch owner to admire the exceptional L931.4 caliber, executed entirely by A. Lange & Sohne.

Composed of 237 hand-finished elements, this rectangular-shaped mechanism is created in line with the case shape. Three of the 30 jewels, decorating the movement, are set in polished gold chatons. These charming components are secured to the German silver bridge by an elegant trio of blued steel screws.

Other prominent features, paying tribute to the traditions of the conventional Saxon watch-making, include a hand-engraved balance cock, a polished swan-neck fine adjustment spring, as well as bridges, embellished with the glimmering Glashutte ribbing patterns. The bridges are also decorated with gold-inlaid engravings, which designate A. Lange & Sohne manufacture as well as the technical specifications of the caliber. The balance wheel with weighted gold screws pulses at 21,600 vibrations per hour. The movement offers a 42-hour power reserve.

The A. Lange & Sohne Cabaret Soiree Jewelry watches come with fine, hand-sewn crocodile straps, which are in full harmony with the mother-of-pearl dials. Each of the straps is finished with the oversized A. Lange & Sohne ardillon buckle, sculptured in 18-karat white gold.

Both watches from A. Lange & Sohne are available as a limited series of 10 items.
