Divine Time

Villa d’Este on Lake Como was once a resort for men of the cloth. These days it serves another heavenly purpose, as the host of Concorso D’Eleganza, where luxury watch specialists A. Lange & Söhne marry their mechanical mastery with the finest in automobile plumage.
A unique A. Lange & Söhne timepiece for the winner of the ‘best of show’ category at Concorso D’Eleganza, Lake Como.

There is a sense of proportion in mechanical objects that imbue a vision of beauty in the eye of the beholder — proportions that appeal and are seen as intrinsically harmonious. Concorso d’Eleganza in Italy is the aesthetic heaven you would expect it to be. Since 1929, the elegant, the sartorially resplendent, the well-wheeled and the well-heeled have converged on the shores of Lake Como at Villa d’Este to parade in spectacular surroundings. It is arguably one of the world’s premier automobile concours, and A. Lange & Söhne have been one of its main partners for the past decade.
