The Tourbillon 'Pour Le Mérite' was among the first watches A. Lange & Söhne produced, alongside the legendary Lange 1, Saxonia and Arkade models upon the firm's re-launch in 1994. This exquisite watch was produced between 1994 and 1998 and was limited to 50 pieces in platinum and 150 in gold. The present example was made especially upon request for the original owner with its pink dial.
The Tourbillon 'Pour Le Mérite' is arguably one of the highest quality tourbillons ever produced. The chain-fusee mechanism equalizes the power of the mainspring, while the tourbillon cage counters the effects of gravity on the balance wheel. The power reserve indication enables the wearer to monitor the performance of the watch and the mainspring, particularly during winding. This technical marvel is acclaimed with the prestigious German accolade 'Pour Le Mérite' presented by the German government for achievements in science and arts.
