The two-hand watch in a limited edition of 175 pieces features a honey-gold case with a height of merely 6.3 millimetres. The brilliant-white two-part enamel dial stands out prominently in this exclusive setting. The dark-grey-printed Arabic numerals and the classic railway track minute scale contrast crisply against the bright background.
In all of its artisanal facets, the manually assembled 167-part manufacture movement L093.1 pays tribute to the style introduced by Ferdinand Adolph Lange. Contrary to the Glashütte ribbing commonly used in other Lange models, the German-silver three-quarter plate has a granular surface texture often found in historic Lange pocket watches. Gold chatons secured by three thermally blued screws trace the path of the power transmitted from the mainspring barrel to the escapement. The invisible quality hallmarks include the two-fold assembly of the movement, which guarantees technical and visual perfection.
