The Lange One Tourbillon - An Icon Made More Iconic

The Lange One is the icon of the brand so when Lange decided to develop a tourbillon around this piece, it sure will be a stunning piece.

I am lucky enough to know a friend who owns of these beauties - the Lange One Tourbillon. As with all things Lange, the finishing and aesthetics are beautiful.

And the movement side is a stunner too.

And the hand engraved balance cock is exquisitely executed.

The level of finishing on the movement is as one would expect from the House of Lange. The watch is in platinum and limited to 150 pieces worldwide.

The timepiece has all the signature of the Lange One - off centre dial, large date and the power reserve indicator. A rather beautiful timepiece IMHO.

The tourbillon is located on the right side of the timepiece and well finished too.

A close up of the tourbillon. And the "jewel" at the top of the tourbillon is a diamond!

A simple yet stunning timepiece.

The next is to find the Cabaret Tourbillon which is the first tourbillon to incorporate a hacking mechanism which is a Lange Patent.
