King Prussian Frederick William IV established the ‘Pour le Mérite’ title in 1842. Today, this honor is still used to praise the outstanding work of great scientists and artists. The Lange intricate watch with unparalleled craftsmanship, mechanical innovation and artistic value is worthy of this high honor. The main feature of the Lange ‘Pour le Mérite’ watch is its sesame chain transmission system, which ensures that the movement is always driven by constant power regardless of winding and power reserve. The system also includes a planetary gear transmission, which can continuously and stably transmit power to the traveling gear train even when winding up. The sesame chain drive system was first seen in Lange’s rare pocket watches and marine chronographs in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Its history can be traced back to a painting by Leonardo da Vinci in the early 16th century .
As the focal point of the exhibition, the creation of the RICHARD LANGE TOURBILLON “Pour le Mérite” watch was inspired by pocket watches made by Saxony watchmaker Johann Heinrich Seyffert (1751-1817) On the dial of the original pocket watch, three intersecting circles are used to display the time. The movement is also equipped with a sesame chain drive system. All the above impressive features are reproduced in the RICHARD LANGE TOURBILLON ‘Pour le Mérite’. Just like its exquisite appearance, the innovative dial switch design, in addition to showing its tourbillon frame through a small circular window, can also extend the hour dial to cover the small window when the hour hand moves into the small window range, When clearly displayed.
