For the fifth time now, A. Lange & Söhne is taking part in the parade of automotive works of art on Lake Como. This year's motto of the prestigious competition for classic automobiles and futuristic concept cars is 'Back to the future – the journey continues'. Once again, the winner in the 'Best of show' category will be presented with a unique LANGE 1 TIME ZONE 'Como Edition'.

The elite in classic automotive engineering is reconvening on Lake Como from 20 to 22 May. Splendid vintage cars with fascinating backstories will be vying for the favour of the jury and the spectators in eight categories. A. Lange & Söhne has sponsored the elegance competition since 2012; it is considered to be one of the most traditional and significant events of its kind.

Every car recounts its own exciting story in the rambling park of the Villa d'Este. The 1952 Pegaso Cupula is one of them. Last year, it won the prize for the most stunning design. As extravagant as they are rare, Spanish-made Pegaso coupés continue to impress aficionados with their intrepid combination of colour, finesse of form and technology.

This year, in the category 'Daring to be different – designs that pushed the envelope', the show will highlight examples of particularly bold, often controversially debated and yet decidedly trailblazing innovations in the domains of design and technology.

If the LANGE 1 TIME ZONE 'Como Edition' – created especially for the Concorso – were a car, it would rank among the favourites in this category. The prominent asymmetric dial of the LANGE 1 startled the world when it had its debut in 1994, making the reborn A. Lange & Söhne brand famous overnight.

The innovative home-time and time-zone display expresses the mechanical prowess with which the manufactory continues to thrill watch enthusiasts and collectors. The hand-engraved caseback of the special-edition model in white gold features the Concorso's coat of arms.

On the city ring, Como stands for Central European Time. Lange CEO Wilhelm Schmid will personally present the winner of the 'Best of show' category with the unique timepiece on the occasion of the awards ceremony on 22 May.
