A. Lange & Sohne Offers Its Rose Gold Version Of Lange 31

Aug 26, 2009
The horological company A. Lange & Sohne, of Glashutte, based in Germany, has just introduced a novel rose gold interpretation of the famous Lange 31. The latter, offered in a platinum case, made its original appearance two years ago. Afterwards, a major designer Martin Schetter in collaboration with his design team got down to developing a new version of the model.

They invested more than two years of painstaking effort in creating a novel interpretation. Such lengthy period of work is easily explained by the brands attention paid to every little detail in terms of quality and design. The results are always worth waiting for, since A. Lange & Sohne is notable for its spectacular watches all over the world.

The Lange 31 watch is the first mechanical timepiece in the world, able to offer a 31-day power reserve, as well as a constant-force escapement, which provides the going train with constant torque delivery.

The huge amount of energy, necessary for the timepiece to function properly, is delivered to the movement by means of a winding key and stored then in a twin mainspring barrel. Thus, the balance gets an equal amount of energy every ten second, irrespectively of the state of wind of the springs.

The movement, boasting such a respectable power reserve, measures 37.3 mm in diameter and is 9.6 mm thick. The case of the Lange 31 model is oversized. Actually, this is the largest watch ever proposed by A. Lange & Sohne.

The brands timepiece cases are usually from 38 to 42mm wide and from 9 to 14mm thick. The case of the model in question features the dimensions of 45.9 mm x15.9 mm, with the width and thickness indicated respectively.
