Being into watches there are always models that are far out of reach for your budget. Watches that are created for the happy few so to say. But with all their beauty and craftsmanship they are worth being shown to the world. Wether you are one of the few that can afford it or just appreciate the beauty of these high-end watches. So without going too deep into these watches we do like to share them with you, hence the Showcase Sunday. Kicking off with the A. Lange & Söhne Tourbograph Perpetual “Pour le Mérite”.
A. Lange & Söhne Tourbograph Perpetual “Pour le Mérite”
The meanwhile fifth masterpiece in the “Pour le Mérite” series combines the fusée-and-chain transmission with a tourbillon, a chronograph, a rattrapante function and a perpetual calendar. It was in October 1994 when A. Lange & Söhne presented the first collection of the new era, including the Tourbillon “Pour le Mérite”. This was the first wristwatch with a tourbillon and a fusée-and-chain transmission. It was followed in 2005 with a further model in which these two constructions were united: the Tourbograph “Pour le Mérite”. But there was more: a chronograph with the rattrapante function made it the manufactory’s most complicated watch at the time. This year the movement became its fifth complication: a perpetual calendar. The watch consequently is now called Tourbograph Perpetual “Pour le Mérite”.
Being a professional photographer by day it’s always a pleasure capturing high-end watches in the best way possible. Keeping in mind that most of the watches we shoot for our publications are only in our hands for a few minutes. So it’s with great pleasure we show you the A. Lange & Söhne Tourbograph Perpetual “Pour le Mérite” up close and personal.
