Lange & Sohne Tourbograph Tourbillon cage  2 Comments


Since the start of the decade, the tourbillon has become a necessary feature for watch houses to claim to be part of high horology. As a result, tourbillons are now are not as rare as was in the past. Unfortunately many of the tourbillons are not made in house but outsourced and very often they are added onto current designs as a module. Historically, the design, manufacture and assembling of a tourbillon was a painstaking process but with computer aided design and new materials with new tools available today, much of the complexity and design risk has been removed.
This is not to say that there is still a huge amount of work involved in crafting a top quality tourbillon finished to the Nth degree that Lange is famous for. Lange & Sohne has been revered by collectors as a watch house that does not compromise on quality and finishing.
Have a look at the high resolution close up of the Tourbograph's tourbillon cage here and see if it deserves the right to the claim as one of the most desired modern tourbillons today. Click on the image above to see the high resolution version.
