A. Lange & Söhne LANGE 1 White Gold

After the successful introduction of a new version of the LANGE 1 brand icon in January 2015, A. Lange & Söhne is extending the LANGE 1 watch family with a model in white gold with luminous hands and hour markers.

A new manufacture calibre launched last year kicked off a further chapter of the 20-year success story of the LANGE 1, the company’s brand and design icon. To complement the models in pink gold, yellow gold and platinum, A. Lange & Söhne is now presenting a model with a 38.5-millimetre case in white gold. The luminous hands and hour markers on the argenté-coloured dial are crisply legible even in the dark, providing information on the precise time and remaining power reserve.

Combining a large balance wheel with eccentric poising weights and a free-sprung Lange balance spring, the manually wound calibre L121.1, newly presented in 2015, assures superior accuracy. Refinements come to the fore in details such as the instantaneously jumping outsize-date display.

The calibre features the proven twin mainspring barrel with a power reserve of three days. Lange-typical quality hallmarks include eight screwed gold chatons, a three-quarter plate made of untreated German silver and decorated with Glashütte ribbing, a precision beat-adjustment system with a whiplash spring and a set screw, as well as a manually engraved balance cock.
