As a fervent Italian I can only be happy to know that such an exclusively renowned company of the caliber of A.Lange & Sohne had chosen Florence as the city in which to celebrate the launch of its latest and refined models. The meeting and starting point is the St. Regis in Florence, whose elegance cradled us for these three days characterized by numerous experiences to emphasize the craftsmanship of which Florence is soaked and to which the extreme manufacturing peculiarity of the watchmaking brand of German origins is connected. On the first day we have been divided into groups to ease at a logistical level the visits, but the central and most important day has been the second, dedicated to the visit of the famous Cantine Antinori. The day, extremely pleasant and interesting, revealed to us the organizing structure of the Antinori family, which has been into this business for over 26 generations. We have had the chance to visit the interiors of the wine cellars to fully understand from a close point of view the vilification process of the “Chianti Classico” and others until arriving to a small room dedicated to the tasting of the above mentioned and the “Peppoli”. During the day, the “1815 Rattrappente Perpetual Calendar” model has been introduced in worldwide exclusive, produced in a limited edition of only 20 pieces whose price approximately amounts to 450.000 euro.
The day ends with a Gala dinner in a remarkable location, Palazzo Gondi, where a suave atmosphere frames a very elegant evening which stars with a breathtaking sunset with a view on Florence roofs. During the evening also other models have been introduced:
We depart on the day after, grateful for a fantastic experience, with the wish of working again with them in the future.
