Lange made a unique LANGE ZEITWERK watch for the Kidz Horizon Charity Ball held in Singapore this year. This white gold LANGE ZEITWERK with grey dial debuted in Asia for the first time.
In August 2009, Duncan Wang, a Chinese-American businessman and watch collector, died at the age of 44. As Duncan was fascinated by watches and philanthropy, his parents and friends living in Singapore came up with the most appropriate way to remember him. A year later, the first Duncan watch was auctioned in Singapore to raise money for the children’s charity The Kidz Horizon Appeal. The organization, founded by Dr. Liu Meiling in 2004, raises medical expenses for children with chronic diseases such as cancer or AIDS, so that children whose families cannot afford the medical expenses can also get the treatment they need.
The unique LANGE ZEITWERK watch, made especially for this year’s Kidz Horizon charity ball.
Both Dr. Liu and Duncan have always appreciated Lange watches, and one of Lange’s limited edition watches has naturally become the Duncan watch of the year. This year, a special LANGE ZEITWERK with a uniquely sculpted and grey dial will be auctioned at the Kidz Horizon Appeal Charity Ball held on August 27, 2011 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel Ballroom in Singapore. When Lange Chief Executive Wilhelm Schmid was invited to donate a unique Lange watch for the Kidz Horizon charity auction, he and his colleagues were excited because they knew it was the most important thing to do: care about the society in which we live. , Especially the younger generation, is the root of the history and value of the Lange brand. The main goal of the Lange Watch Factory was to help young people in poor areas solve their unemployment problems.
LANGE ZEITWERK is different from other watches in that it stands for absolute firmness. The watch’s logo is considered too large, and the dial shows the current time unambiguously. It just jumped lightly and jumped from this minute to the next in an instant. At the full hour, the three dials of the watch will jump forward at the same time. The constant power escapement system between the barrel and the balance wheel generates switching power, while ensuring that the power to the balance wheel remains stable throughout the power reserve period. This unique version of the design highlights the contrast between light and dark, with a white gold case lined with a gray dial and white numerals, a black alligator strap and a solid white gold folding buckle. The bottom of the watch is specially engraved with ‘1/1 SGP 2011’ to witness its uniqueness and its commemorative items.
