Pursue precision
This year, Lange’s focus is on precision. The Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase’s moon phase display is made using a patented coating process to reproduce the moon phase profit and loss cycle to an accuracy of 99.9978%. After setting the time for the watch, if the watch continues to run uninterrupted, the moon phase display only needs to be corrected one day every 122.6 years. Richard Lange Perpetual Calendar ‘Terraluna’ moon phase display is more accurate-Lange watch for the first time the moon phase display device on the movement side. The moon phase display consists of three dials. Through the circular window at the bottom of the table, you can watch the celestial discs with bright stars, and the moon orbits the earth counterclockwise. This device accurately weights the existing moon days of 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes, and 3 seconds, and only needs to correct one day after 1.058 years. Equipped with two powerful mainsprings, dual barrels provide a 14-day power reserve. The constant power escapement ensures that the watch maintains a steady rate throughout the power reserve. The new 1815 Tourbillon is also designed with extreme precision in mind. This watch’s tourbillon is equipped with Lange’s patented stop-second function, and the zeroing function of the adjustment device is also patented. The combination of the two functions ensures that the watch can be precisely adjusted.

The Most Individual Classic In The Women’s Watch

Hermès Kelly Gold Diamond Watch
    18K white gold case set with 344 Top Wesselton VVS cut diamonds (total 2.24 carats), quartz movement, white mother-of-pearl dial with Hermes alligator leather strap Hermes’ Kelly collection tells an interesting coincidence : In 1956, Grace Kelly, Princess of Morocco, covered her swollen belly with a crocodile leather handbag from Hermès, and Hermès later named it Kelly. The Kelly watch series came out in 1975, and its lock-like appearance is a lively interpretation of the padlock of Kelly leather bags, just as many contemporary products are beyond useful and useless in terms of their symbolic functions. This ‘useless’ design of the Kelly series watch makes it as obtrusive as a little wild cat on the woman’s wrist, becoming the most individual classic in women’s watches.
