Dedicated to the luxury brand’s founder Walter Lange, this collector’s watch was auctioned at a price of CHF 852,500 (₹58,092,885). The proceeds from this sale are going to the Swiss-based Children Action Foundation.
This unique 1815 “Homage to Walter Lange” features sweep-seconds mechanism, a black enamel dial and a stainless-steel case.
Limited editions 1815 “Homage to Walter Lange” available in white gold, pink gold and yellow gold colours will also go on sale in autumn.
A. Lange & Söhne CEO, Wilhelm Schmid says, “The result went well beyond our expectations. I’m particularly pleased that we can make a major contribution to Children Action’s important work, just as Walter Lange intended. The fact that the watch auctioned for such a high amount is not only a reflection of the increased value of A. Lange & Söhne watches but also the worldwide community of collectors’ huge admiration for Walter Lange.” alange-soehne.com
