Details Of The History Of The Lange Tourbillon Movement Watch

At the Geneva International Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) held from January 20 to 24, 2014, the Saxony fine watch brand Lange, based in the German watch town Glashütte, exhibited 1815 Tourbillon watch.

   Earth’s gravity is probably the most elusive of all physical phenomena, and it has caused human curiosity since its distant history. The First Men in the Moon, published in 1901, is a masterpiece by the famous British science fiction novelist H. G. Wells. In this novel, a scientist named Cavor has developed a mysterious substance that can offset the gravity of the earth. However, fortunately or unfortunately, in real life, the gravity of the earth will neither fail nor change the offset.

   A century before the publication of H. G. Wells’s novel, watchmakers have invented a tourbillon (French) that uses the rotation of its frame to offset the errors caused by gravity in the parts of the clock escapement.

20 years 8 tourbillon movements

   Over the past 20 years, Lange has independently designed and built 49 movements, 8 of which are equipped with tourbillons.

This spirit of diligence and creativity has led to a series of innovative design solutions and a series of world first records.
