A. Lange & Söhne tests Young Watchmakers

Postby koimaster » May 10th 2017, 3:43pm

The best watchmaking schools have sent their best students to Dresden to compete in A. Lange & Söhne’s annual young talent competition. Eight watchmakers have been selected by Lange from over 30 watchmaking schools across the world for the final part of a multi-phase competition. The finalists will now have six months to design and build a regulator, using an ETA base movement. The assignment was chosen by Anthony de Hass, Lange’s Director of Product Development, who is encouraging out-of-the box thinking.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

A lousy 10,000 euros in prize money? Stingy bastards, the kids will proly spend more than that completing their watches.

I'd wager there's going to be 8 really cool watches for the judges to have to choose from.
