一輛1958年製的法拉利335 Sport在本年度的Concorso d’Eleganze Villa d’Este古董車展上勇奪「最佳車款」的尊貴名銜。來自奧地利的車主Andreas Mohringer獲頒Lange 1 Time Zone “Como Edition”,此腕錶珍品由18K白色黃金鑄造,專為這次活動而設。在此特別版腕錶的旋轉城市圈,歐洲中時間以比賽位置科莫(Como)作標示,藉以紀念車展舉行地點。朗格總裁Wilhelm Schmid在今年5月27日假埃斯特莊園大酒店舉行盛大會,向優勝者頒發此獨一無二的臻品,其揭蓋更以手工鐫刻Concorso徽章。

朗格自2012年起成為這個著名經典車賽的合作夥伴。Schmid在致辭時分享收藏非凡汽車和精緻腕錶之間的共通點:「汽車與腕錶絕對不止於技術特性,在每項發明和設計的背後,是一個又一個充滿熱誠的人。汽車與腕錶也是個人美學的象徵,以獨特的腕錶襯托最漂亮的汽車,實在是天衣無縫。車主投放大量時間和精力保養此汽車佳作,Lange 1 Time Zone “Como Edition”正是我們對其付出的肯定。」


A Ferrari 335 Sport from 1958 received the prestigious title “Best of Show” at this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. The owner, Andreas Mohringer from Austria, received a horological rarity as a prize: a “Como Edition” of the model LANGE 1 TIME ZONE made from white gold and specially created for this occasion. To pay homage to the venue of the competition, on the rotating city ring of this special edition, Central European Time is displayed using Como, the location of the competition, instead of Berlin as it is in the classic edition. Lange CEO Wilhelm Schmid presented the beaming winner with the unique piece with the Concorso crest hand-engraved on the hinged lid at a gala event at the Grand Hotel Villa d’Este on 27 May 2018.

A. Lange & Söhne has been a partner of the renowned competition for classic cars since 2012. In his laudatory speech, Schmid referred to the similarities between collectors of extraordinary automobiles and those of timepieces: “Cars and watches have always been far more than their technical characteristics. Behind every invention and every design are passionate people. A car or a watch is also always a personal, aesthetic statement. What could be more suitable than to honour the most beautiful car with a unique watch? The LANGE 1 TIME ZONE ‘Como Edition’ is our recognition of the time and effort the owner has invested into preserving this automotive masterpiece.”
