The year 2018 sees the addition of three feminine versions to A. Lange & Söhne Little Lange 1 family. These three fascinating versions stand out with the interaction of exquisite colours and materials. The guilloched gold dials and alligator leather straps are sublimely colour-coordinated.
Presented at SIHH 2018, the new Little Lange 1 models are available in two white-gold versions with purple or grey dials and a pink-gold version with a brown dial. The eclectic interplay of colours and materials is the common denominator of the three new interpretations that each embody a specific style.
A purple dial in guilloched gold framed by a white-gold case makes a fabulous statement. Hands and appliques in rhodiumed gold emit dazzling reflections against the dark background. This version is limited to 100 watches and is available exclusively at A. Lange & Söhne boutiques. The grey dial, also guilloched, of the second white-gold model radiates cool elegance.
Conversely, the guilloched dial of the pink-gold version amplifies the brown-hued ensemble of the case, hands, and appliques. In all three versions, the alligator leather straps echo the colour of the respective dial to amplify its effect.
The manually wound calibre L121.1. movement, originally introduced with the LANGE 1, ticks beneath the asymmetric dial. The technical features of the watch include the powerful twin mainspring barrel that keeps it running for three days, the characteristic UP/DOWN power-reserve indicator, the instantaneously jumping outsize date and the balance with eccentric poising weights and an in-house manufactured hairspring.
Manifestations of the artisanship nurtured by A. Lange & Söhne include the three-quarter plate made of German silver and decorated with Glashütte ribbing, eight screwed gold chatons, and the whiplash spring beat adjustment device on the manually engraved balance cock.
