This weeks Spot the Watch is camera related and was brought to our attention by a friend of Deployant. He spotted an article in Het Financieele Dagblad, a Dutch financial paper that was on the CEO of Hasselblad Cameras, Perry Oosting and his favourite items.
Hasselblad Cameras are a brand of Swedish made medium format cameras and are well known for their quality. Hasselband Cameras were used by NASA during the Apollo Missions and 3 models were with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin when they landed on the moon.
Perry Oosting, the CEO of the company has previously held positions with luxury brands Bulgari, Gucci and Prada and was previously the CEO of luxury mobile phone maker Vertu. The brand of watch he mentioned in the recent article was A Lange and Söhne.
We did some image hunting and found a couple of shots with him wearing his Lange 1.
The list of Perry Oostings favourite things in the recent article from Het Financieele Dagblad below.
From the article: Perry Oosting On Lange: ” I like the A. Lange & Söhne brand because it is only known by the connoisseurs and because they choose to have a low annual production. On top of that their watches don’t draw much attention. I wear a Lange-1″
Writers note 07/09/16: Just to note, the Dutch publication used a stock image of a white dial Lange 1 in their picture. From the photos we found, Perry Oosting wears a black dialed revision which is why we included a stock black dial Lange.
We are pretty sure the model he owns is the Grand Lange 1 in 18k White Gold.
Back in 2009, he did a similar interview for the Financial Times and mentioned his love of A Lange and Söhne.
We found a photo of him from his time as Vertu CEO and you can see the Grand Lange 1 on his wrist while he is hugging Lapo Elkann.
A thank you to Edwin Heusinkveld for giving us a heads up with the article in the Dutch financial paper.
That concludes this A Lange and Söhne themed Spot the Watch!
