A. Lange & Söhne served as a partner for the prestigious competition for classic automobiles for the sixth time. Concorso d’Eleganza is a perfect match for A. Lange & Söhne. It celebrates the automobile as a collector’s item, design icon and work of art. Each of these aspects is represented in the world of fine watchmaking. In a year in which the competition’s motto is “Around the World in 80 Days – Voyage through an Era of Records”, there could hardly be a more fitting trophy than a watch that, at the touch of a push piece, shows all of the world’s 24 time zones.
This year, the most stunning car in the competition was named as Alfa Romeo Giulietta SS Prototipo built in 1957. It won in the “Best of Show” category. Its owner, Corrado Lopresto from Italy, received the special edition of the LANGE 1 TIME ZONE “Como Edition” in white gold from Lange CEO Wihelm Schmid. The prize-giving ceremony took place as part of a gala dinner at the Grand Hotel Villa d’Este on 28 May 2017.
