Lot Essay

This endangered species strap is shown for display purposes only and is not for sale. The watch will be supplied with a calf leather strap.

The present ref. 107.027 is a well-preserved example of the A. Lange & Söhne “Cabaret” model, the overall appeal enhanced by its rectangular case, reminiscent to of the geometrical elegance of the Art Deco style, the white gold material perfectly matching to its blue dial.

The patented, oversized date demonstrates how tradition and ingenuity can come together in style. This useful feature, inspired by the digital clock in Dresden's Semper Opera, improves the legibility of the date by about three times in comparison with conventional displays.

The exceptionally well finished form shaped movement is a more elegant approach than the short cut taken by many manufacturers of using a round movement within a rectangular case. The movement features a three-quarter plate made of untreated German silver and decorated with Glashütte ribbing, a stop second mechanism activated when the crown is pulled out and a patented twin-disc mechanism for the display of the oversized date.
