Here at Monochrome we always start the week with our Weekly Watch Photo. This week we’ll show you some magnificent photos of the Swiss A. Lange & Söhne Richard Lange Pour le Mérite Watch. The photos are made by Edwin, who moderates the A. Lange & Söhne forum at Timezone.com.
This is the TAG Heuer Automatic Mikrograph Convertible Chronograph Watch. It is capable of measuring up to 1/100th of a second while keeping COSC accuracy. Its self-winding caliber was first seen in 2011 at Only Swiss Designer Watches Online and it features two independent escapements to make it happen. To see a Mikrograph in use is just awesome – the chrono hand flies around the dial so quickly as to become almost invisible.
In a bold move, Baume & Mercier unveils the highly complicated Clifton Perpetual Calendar. As is the brand’s style, each year it unveils a very special Swiss made complication in the Clifton collection. Last year we witnessed the unveiling of the stunning five-minute repeater pocket Swiss Designer Watches Online, and the year before that, a tourbillon. Now, the 186-year-old brand turns its attention to astronomy and to one of the most useful functions for today’s busy lifestyles: the perpetual calendar.
