From the 2nd of September until the 4th, the Concours of Elegance will take place at the Hampton Court Palace on the outskirts of London, where the main stars of the event will be 60 spectacular and rare automobiles.
Another special guest is the prestigious watch brand A. Lange & Söhne, which has been an official partner of the event since 2018 and will exhibit all its art through a unique version of the 1815 CHRONOGRAPH. The exclusive timepiece will be auctioned off on 6 November 2022 by Phillips in Association with Bacs & Russo at the Geneva Watch Auction XVI.
The proceeds will be donated to The Prince’s Trust charity and used to give young people better prospects in life.
The 1815 CHRONOGRAPH “Hampton Court Edition” comes in a 39.5mm white-gold case, black dial and, for the first time, sandstone-coloured numerals. Behind the hinged cuvette with the hand-engraved logo of the Concours of Elegance operates the Lange Caliber L951.5 manufactured movement, a flyback chronograph with a column-wheel control, that beats 18,000 Vph, featuring a stopped times accuracy of one-fifth of a second.
