A one-of-a-kind LANGE 1 TIME ZONE was presented to US-American fashion designer Ralph Lauren by Lange-CEO Wilhelm Schmid yesterday. Lauren was the winner of this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza “Best of Show” trophy for his Bugatti 57 SC Atlantic Coupé with a coachwork from Jean Bugatti built in 1938. This is the second year for A. Lange & Söhne as a sponsor of the “Festival of Beauty” which has taken place on the shoreline of Lake Como since 1929.
The Lange 1 TIME ZONE indicates the current time in all of the world’s 24 time zones while simultaneously displaying home time. A peripheral city ring makes it possible to set the zone times with pushbutton convenience.

The caseback of the white-gold watch displays the hand-engraved coat of arms of the Concorso d’Eleganza. On the rotatable city ring, Como represents Central European Time – as homage to the venue.
