Record price for unique A. Lange & Söhne piece

16 May, 2018

At the eagerly awaited Phillips spring auction, held in Geneva, the only 1815 “Homage to Walter Lange” watch ever made in a steel case went under the hammer for an unbeatable price of CHF 852,500 (US$ 852,414; € 713,627; incl. buyer’s premium). This is the highest result at auction that a Lange wristwatch has ever achieved.
The unique piece was dedicated to company founder Walter Lange, who passed away in 2017. Its spe-cial features include a jumping sweep-seconds mechanism, black enamel dial segment and stainless-steel case. All proceeds from the sale of the watch will go to the Children Action Foundation. The Swiss-based aid organisation helps promote the physical and emotional well-being of disadvantaged children and young people in eight countries around the globe.
