On 24 May 2015, Lange CEO Wilhelm Schmid handed over a special timepiece to the American David Sydorick. The owner of an Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Spider Zagato is the winner of this year’s Concorso d’Eleganza jury award “Best of Show“. His more than 80 years old car has been chosen as the most beautiful one during the traditional competition for classic automobiles and awarded with the exclusively made Lange 1 Time Zone “Como Edition“.

About 60 participants presented their classic cars in the attractive surrounding at Lake Como. A. Lange & Söhne has been supporting the celebration of automotive artistry since four years. The Lange 1 Time Zone “Como Edition” was designed to complement the competition’s most alluring automobile. The caseback of the white-gold watch displays the hand-engraved coat of arms of the Concorso d’Eleganza. In homage to the venue, Como represents Central European Time on the rotatable city ring.
