Since its launch in 1994, the Lange Tourbillon “Pour le Mérite” has established itself as one of the most fascinating wristwatches in the world. The complication, with its fusée-and-chain transmission, has spurred Lange’s return to greatness more than any model apart from the Lange 1. Find pricing and ordering information inside.
The fascinating story of this extraordinary watch and the three other “Pour le Mérite” models is set out in a new coffee table book titled A. Lange & Söhne: The ‘Pour le Mérite’ Collection. The book is written by watch expert Peter Chong, a long time insider of the brand and founding moderator of the A. Lange & Söhne forum at the international internet platform TimeZone.com.
The book measures a generous 11.5 x 16.5 inches and contains 240 pages, many with large photographs by the author. It provides an insider look at A. Lange & Söhne: its early formative years, the special line of watches which are classified as “Pour le Mérite”, portraits of passionate connoisseurs who share stories of their collecting journey, detailed technical descriptions of the watches, and the first documentation of the service procedure for a Lange Tourbillon “Pour le Mérite”, including its complete disassembly.
