A. Lange & Söhne Innovative Cabaret Tourbillon

        Launched in 1845 by a young enthusiast watchmaker- Ferdinand Adolph Lange in a small German town, near Dresden, A. Lange & Söhne (A Lange & Sons) became the pinnacle of today’s German finest watch-making industry, and earned a well established place among the world’s prestigious watch-making powerhouses, due to its commitment to creating impeccable timepieces of timeless beauty and mechanical perfection.

         A. Lange & Söhne faced extinction when, the post World War II, Soviet administration expropriated the founders in 1848, but after the collapse of the Iron Curtain, in 1990s, with the help of a renowned family of Swiss watch manufacturers, the IWC group, parented by Richemont, A. Lange & Söhne lived to see another day and ever since continually improved and innovated its concepts, becoming a respected member of the Haute Horology, a watch-making brand which sells its products for prices equaling those of Swiss top brands as Vacheron Constantine, Audemars Piguet, Breguet or Patek Philippe.


        A. Lange & Söhne brings to life another exquisite timepiece, the Cabaret Tourbillon Watch– a sophisticated model which combines the classy elegance of a rectangular case manufactured either from platinum or pink gold (measuring 29.5 x 39.2 mm) with the fascinating tourbillon complication which features a one-of-a-kind stop-seconds function incorporated.

        Animated by a sophisticated manually wound A. Lange & Söhne Caliber L042.1, this classy timepiece ensures minutes, hours, small seconds and power reserve indicators, a remarkable power reserve of 5 days (120 hours when fully wound). The intricate architecture of the watch’s movement meets the brand’s highest quality standards, and due to a sapphire crystal case-back it becomes a true feast for a curious eye. Its three-quarter plate was manufactured from German untreated silver and furthermore it is accented by 6 screwed gold chatons placed on the hand-engraved intermediary wheel, tourbillon-cocks and dial-side Tourbillon Bridge. Along with 45 ruby jewels, two diamonds serving as end-stoned for the pivots of the balance-wheel stand as a proof of A. Lange & Söhne’s horological excellence.

        The classy refinement of the watch’s dial instantaneously draws attention to the tourbillon cage located at 6 o’clock, balanced with an emblematic A. Lange & Söhne, oversized double date aperture located at 12 o’clock position which harmoniously balances the entire design of the dial; moreover this elegant innovative model is completed by a crocodile leather strap and it has an estimated price range between $120,000.00 up to $180,000.00.
