First revealed in March, 2007 sporting a precious platinum body, the striking rose gold A. Lange & Sohne Lange 31 replica watch that sports with a hand-wound mechanical movement, which is made solely in-hose, is now available in a less intimidating (and more affordable) rose gold case!
While the timepiece’s exterior doesn’t differ too much from the rest of the brand’s product line (except, perhaps, for its huge (but still wearable) diameter of almost 46 millimeters and height of just shy of 16 millimeters, making it even bigger than their Double Split chronograph watch,) its state of the art caliber L034.1 manually wound movement makes the watch a real piece of art.
Just like the recently unveiled Zeitwerk model, the elegant fake A. Lange & Sohne Lange 31 timekeeper can certainly be described as one of the most interesting watches ever created by the German manufacture.
The in-house caliber is built of 406 parts and features a pair of stacked mainspring barrels that provide space for a mainspring 1850 mm in length! Each 25 mm (almost an inch) in diameter, which makes them larger than, say, fully assembled Girard-Perregaux 3080 automatic movement!
From the very beginning, this beautiful timepiece was available only in platinum case, thus bearing a hefty (to say the least) price tag of around $180,000.
Although the new 18-carat rose gold version looks somewhat inferior to the original Lange 31, it may become more popular among collectors thanks to its more affordable price.
Sorry for so many exclamation signs: this beautiful movement indeed makes my heart beat faster.
Well, frankly speaking, there is still no info on the new model’s MSRP, but there is a good chance that after a prolonged bargaining you will be able to get this baby at a price of a fully loaded Porsche Panamera four-door coupe.
Together, these mainsprings provide the A. Lange & Sohne copy watch with an incredibly long power reserve of 31 days!
