Geneva SIHH 2014

Cellini warms up your winter with a first-hand look at some
of the hottest watches unveiled at Geneva’s annual watch fair.

A. Lange & Söhne made an impressive showing this year 
with daring complications as well as new metal options 
for some of its most popular models.

Richard Lange Perpetual Calendar “Terraluna” (New Model)

The dial conveys a wealth of information using a regulator-style display for the time, windows for the perpetual calendar discs, and a peripheral aperture to indicate the generous 14-day power reserve.

The watch’s name comes from the innovative astronomical complication found on the movement side. It not only depicts the changing lunar phases, but it also orbits around the display to indicate the moon’s position relative to the Earth (which also rotates) and the Sun (represented by the balance). Gorgeous and precise, the moon phase will not require an adjustment for more than 1,000 years, if run continuously. 

Available in pink or white gold, the case measures 45.5mm in diameter.

Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase (New Model)

The moon phase once again commands the spotlight, but this time in the Grand Lange 1 collection. Integrated seamlessly into the model’s signature offset time display, the lunar disc is crafted from solid gold and can be adjusted quickly with a button on the side of the case. 

Its manually wound movement possesses a 72-hour power reserve, which is indicated on the dial. The case measures 41mm and is available in yellow or rose gold, or platinum.

Lange 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar

Available for the first time in rose gold, this particular Lange 1 model is prized for its clean design. For instance, rather that use a window or hand to indicate the month, Lange created a ring that rotates around the edge of the dial.
When the watch is worn, the tourbillon remains concealed stealthily on the movement side. Its rose gold case measures 41.9mm and houses an automatic movement made entirely by A. Lange & Söhne.
