A tribute to earth and elegance. Since 2012, the ‘Como Edition’ watch has been equated with the ‘Best Car’ antique car of this competition, which was awarded to the winner by Lange President Wilhelm Schmid.

This shows that it is logical for both parties to work together.

The protagonist of this meeting was the sensational 1957 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint Speciale Prototipo antique car of the Lopresto family, which won the award at the 2017 auto show.

   In the conversation, Duccio Lopresto said that as a collector, he hopes to break the barrier between art and cars, and bring these antique cars on the circuit, so that everyone can appreciate their unique beauty.

   Wilhelm Schmid agrees with this: ‘The original intention of holding the Concorso d’Eleganza antique car show is to collect and protect these artworks, so as to stand the test of time. This is why we are committed to the antique car world Our passion for complex machinery and amazing design is deeply rooted in Lange’s corporate culture. ‘
