The shape and name of this watch were inspired by the arcades of the city palace in Dresden, which have similarly shaped arches.
This lady’s watch was first produced in 1994 and is one of the models that Lange & Soehne presented on the occasion of the company’s spectacular revival. Its most distinctive feature is its generous date indicator, which is considerably larger and more clearly readable than the displays commonly used until then.
