The anniversary collection
A masterpiece of Haute Horlogerie
Lange watches have always convinced with select materials, innovative mechanics, and impressive production techniques. Watch enthusiasts worldwide are in persistent anticipation to determine what’s coming next from the traditional German manufactory.
The Tourbograph Pour le Mérite is the pinnacle of horological brilliance. The timepiece was presented to the market thanks to the work of the famous watchmaker Reinhard Meis alongside a team of world-class watch designers. The name Pour le Mérite is reminiscent of the Order of Merit of the Prussian Crown. It was an award of civil and military merit, which was established by King Friedrich Wilhelm IV in 1842. Alexander von Humboldt – a Prussian geographer, naturalist, and explorer – whose work laid the foundation for the field of meteorological monitoring, inspired the award.
The honourable name of the watch certainly testifies to its outstanding performance. The Tourbograph Pour le Mérite is dedicated to the co-founder of the revived A. Lange & Söhne Company, Günter Blümlein, who succumbed to his illness in 2001. The fine timepiece remembers his visionary work.
