Weekly Watch Photo – Lange 1 Timezone for Concorso d’Eleganza
There appears to become another pattern. Watch brands are making really stunning photographs of their watches, similar to the IWC photographs of the Big Pilot’s Watch we showed. Now we show you some new official photographs A. Lange & Söhne made of the Lange 1 Timezone Piece Unique for Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este that we featured last week .
The photographs are made inside an old BMW 507 Roadster , an exquisite classic and potentially one of my favorite cars of all occasions! Lange & Söhne took the ‘piece unique’ and draped it over a leather driver’s glove on the controlling wheel.
In the past article you can read all details of the watch, anyway I might want to say some more words about the elements of the watch. Like the name already indicates it is a watch with an extra time region indication. The main hour and moment hand are situated at the left half of the dial, with a small seconds hand (of blued steel) towards the 6 o’clock position of that sub dial.
The second time region is indicated in a smaller sub dial, towards the lower right of the dial. An hour and moment hand indicate the time in another time region and a small arrow shaped hand indicates whether it’s day time or evening time in that time region. A similar day/night indicator can also be figured out in the main time sub dial, which makes it easy when setting the time!
An external ring shows the main urban communities in the 24 time regions around the globe. Two pushers on the left half of the case enable the wearer to adjust the subsequent time region together with the time region ring. And on this ‘piece unique’ the city of the GMT+1 (C.E.T. or then again Central European Time) is Como, where the Concorso d’Eleganza took place.
I’m glad watch brand are increasingly showing their watches in a way that is really appreciated by watch darlings. Obviously the typical official press photographs are also beautiful, anyway these ‘mood’ photographs absolutely add to the yearning of claiming these timepieces.
The individual who won this extraordinary watch is also the fortunate proprietor of an Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS sixth Series Coupé with a Figoni body dating back to 1933, that won the Concorso d’Eleganza! Gosh… aren’t it genuine beauties? Both the car and the Lange 1 Time Zone!
