Book Launch in Japan: Tokyo Oct 13

On the occassion for the launch of my book in Tokyo, Lange hosted a Press Conference in the beautiful restaurant right in the middle of town, just a stone's throw from Nihombashi. The restaurant, San Pau is the branch of the famed 3 Star Michelin restaurant in Spain, and in Japan it too garnered two stars.





The entire restaurant dining area was removed to accomodate standing room for some 110 journalists who turned up.

The theme of the evening was to showcase the Pour le Merite watches, and of course my book on Pour le Merite. At one corner, a large bicycle chain is linked to the chain of the Pour le Merite...showing extreme difference in size:





and watchmaker in residence Master Watchmaker Wolf:





He deftly demonstrated dismantling of the Richard Lange Pour le Merite Tourbillon...shown above, removing the fusee. He is a young chap...I know his father Frank, who was Head of Assembly in early years of Lange.

Arnd Einhorn, Head of PR...





And the conference starts with the introduction by Peter Kesselman, Head of ALS in Japan:





And Lange CEO, Wilhelm Schmidt introducing my book...





and at the bar later...after a few drinks...
