The resulting sale price will be donated to the Children Action Foundation.

Lange-CEO Wilhelm Schmid also announced the renaming of the competition “F.A. Lange Watchmaking Excellence Award”, now continuing under the name “Walter Lange Watchmaking Excellence Award”.
Timothé Raguin, winner of the “F. A. Lange Watchmaking Excellence Award” 2017, received the first prize worth EUR 10,000 from Schmid. The jury of the international competition was particularly impressed by the work of the young Frenchman. The regulator with its excellent quality and 24-hour display also has a jumping second – a mechanism that would have surely impressed Walter Lange as well.
