A few weeks ago we told you about this limited edition platinum A. Lange & Söhne “Tourbograph Pour le Mérite” that was up for sale at Antiquorum. On June the 22nd, this quite rare watch sold for just 2,660,000 HKD (approx £222,300.00 GBP) in Hong Kong to a respected Japanese collector. This unfortunately didn’t even reach the maximum estimated amount of 2,800,000 HKD and in my opinion was sold at a bit of a bargain price. Considering it was only made in a limited batch, 51 in fact, in this material at an RRP of $580,000.00.
This A. Lange & Söhne Ref 702.025F No 35/51 “Tourbograph Pour le Mérite” split-seconds chronograph with one-minute tourbillon regulator in platinum, features the world’s first combination of sought after complications. It has a one minute tourbillon, a fusée and chain escapement and a rattrapante chronograph. All encased in a very simple looking but mechanically complicated package. Which now has one very happy owner. Enjoy, I know I would….
