Having been a great success for the past two years, the Haute Horlogerie Exhibition in Asia, Watches & Wonders, will take place from 30 September to 3 October 2015 in Hong Kong. A. Lange & Söhne is once again among the twelve exhibitors who will be presenting their top-tier products at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
When he established his watch manufactory in 1845, the Dresden-born watchmaker Ferdinand Adolph Lange laid the cornerstone of Saxony’s precision watchmaking. “This year, we are celebrating his 200th birthday,” says Lange CEO Wilhelm Schmid. “He defined the most important distinguishing elements of the Saxon style of watchmaking, which can still be found in our modern timepieces. We look forward to sharing this knowledge with watch connoisseurs in Asia on the occasion of the third Watches & Wonders.”
The Asia-Pacific region is of great importance for traditional manufacturing. It enjoys a strong position in this region, which is characterised by a highly developed watch culture. As a gesture of appreciation to watch enthusiasts and collectors in the region, A. Lange & Söhne will be unveiling four debuts in Hong Kong, among them the 1815 Chronograph. This special white-gold chronograph model features blue numerals and a pulsometer scale. The rhodiumed gold hands for the hours and minutes and the blued steel for the chronograph sweep seconds, minute-counter and subsidiary seconds hands reflect the colour combination of the dial. It is available only in the 16 A. Lange & Söhne boutiques worldwide.
