WristReview’s Top 5 Wristwatches of 2017 https://t.co/mU9yXOuqxm
It’s not so often that Saxon watchmaker A. Lange & Söhne releases a Richard Lange timepiece. These watches, which also garnered the title ‘Pour Le Mérite’ (French for ‘For the Merit’) are representations of the finest craftsmanship on offer in the watchmaking industry. It’s almost impossible to consider the amount of work that has gone into one of these timepieces. Very few high-end manufacturers (including a couple on this list) can make such superlative watches. I knew this had to be on our yearly roundup list the moment I saw it released back in January. Lange usually steals the show at SIHH with its complex watches, and it was indeed set to do so again this year with the Tourbograph. Of course, it wasn’t meant to be, a sister company Vacheron Constantin released the Cabinotiers watch, which instantly ran away with it. Still, no harm in second place, eh?
