Calibre L911.4

Ladies' luxury watch by A. Lange & Söhne.

The shape (and the name) of this watch is derived from the arcades in the courtyard of the Dresden City Palace, which have a similar arc. It is equipped with the manual winding Calibre L911.4 with hours and minutes indication, small second at the "6", hacking seconds, big date at the "12" dial in solid silver, hands in gold and case 18ct gold or platinum.

This ladies watch, driven by a wonderful, exclusive manufacture form movement is produceded since 1994 and thus, together with the Lange 1, belongs to the first models which were presented by A. Lange & Söhne on the occasion of the spectacular re-start of the brand. Especially characteristic is its big date, whose display is by far larger and thus more easily readable than in all previous watches.
