The Road to Lake Omega Seamaster Replica

The road to Omega Seamaster Replica was travelled by a Mercedes 190SL and an AC Bristol.

Truly Great

Aside from Wilhelm Schmid, I have always loved him and have a great respect for A. Lange & Sohne's technical and artistic prowess. Two extraordinary horological heroes were instrumental in the rebirth of the brand in 1994. Walter Lange, who was the heir to the marque's name, tragically died in January. Gunter Blumlein,Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Replica one of the most important watch industry geniuses, is the other. He decided to reposition Saxon (read EastGerman), watchmaking at a never-before-achieved standard to rival the Genevois juggernauts – namely Patek Philippe or Vacheron Constantin - who ruled the day.

He unleashed a torrent of the most extraordinary horoloigical wonders by tapping the watchmaking talents that had been working in silence during communist rule. He realized that East German mechanical watchmaking, unlike Switzerland, had not been affected by quartz watches. The savoir faire and knowledge of all things mechanical was still held in the hands of the indefatigable minds and skilled hands who worked tirelessly there.

The Lange 1 was soon launched. It featured a distinctively asymmetric dial, and the first ever grand date mechanism. This watch was inspired by the Dresden Opera House's five-minute seamaster aqua terra replica The watch proudly displayed its double-barrelled status with the declaration "dopplefederhaus” on the dial. This was a delight in collector circles and a happy comparison to Heidi Klum, whose gravity-defying decolletage it was compared to. The untreated German silver (which would tarnish irreparably with a single touch from a human hand), bridges and plates as well as the black-polished swan neck regulator and balance cock,Replica Omega Watches and the chatons - which are the gold sleeves that hold the jewels in place with flame-blued screw - all contributed to a new horological language. It was amazing in its ambition.

Next came the Datograph, the child of watchmaking demigoddess Annegret Fleischer, the world's first "in-house" laterally-coupled, column-wheel operatedchronograph movement featuring a grande date as well as a precisejumping-minute counter at atimewhen Patek and Vacheron were content to rely on a 1940s-era Lemania movement. Lange is for anyone who loves truth, authenticity, and originality.

The contrast between the dial's reposed purity and the seductive depth of movement details is particularly striking. At a time when most brands were still fumbling in high-complication darkness, Lange launched Blumlein's masterpiece: thetourbillon with chain-and-fusee, afirst in wristwatches andunderstatedlynamedthe PourLeMerite.
