The new A. Lange & Sohne Richard Lange "Pour le Merite" is an exquisite example of the company's outstanding horological acheivements. The Pour le Merite timepiece provides the rare combination of a fusee and chain transmission. It comes in both platinum and rose gold and features a white dial crafted from genuine enamel with blued steel hands. The beautiful crocodile leather strap is fitted with a Lange tang buckle in platinum or 18 carat rose gold. The watch has a 36 hour power reserve and will be limited to 200 numbered pieces in rose gold and 50 pieces in platinum.

The watch features a Lange L044.1 caliber movement comprises 279 parts. Each component is hand finished. The watch incorporates the fusee and chain energy transmission system that has previously been used in two other highly respected A. Lange & Sohne timepieces. The fusee and chain system is extremely difficult to produce, but the difficulty pays off by solving the declining torque in the winding train. The conical fusee is joined to the barrel by a miniature chain that when transferred from the fusee to the barrel will guarantees constant torque and the resultant amplitude. The exquisitely delicate yet durable chain is comprised of 636 individual parts.

Fantastic watch. Thanks.
