SIHH 2019: A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 “25th Anniversary”

DEPLOYANT - the watch magazine for collectors, by collectors

The Lange 1 was among the first watches presented as part of modern day A Lange & Söhne in 1994 and has since been the undisputed face of the brand This year, the Lange 1 turns 25 and Lange is celebrating with a “25th anniversary” edition in white gold limited to 250 pieces.

Its special features include a deep-blue printed argenté dial with a recess, blue date numerals, a hinged cuvette with an engraving of Lange’s headquarters, and a hand-engraved balanced cock with blued lines.

Lange 1 “25th Anniversary” (Press Release)

The 24th of October 1994 is the holiest day in A Lange & Söhne’s recent history It is the day on which company founder Walter Lange and his partner Günter Blümlein presented the first post-resurrection Lange wristwatches at the Dresden Palace, including the Lange 1.

The asymmetric layout of its dial triggered discussions, and its technical facets – such as the outsize date and the twin mainspring barrel – were enthusiastically received

Every style-defining design is polarising in the beginning This is because it must overcome habitual expectations to unfold its aesthetic appeal.

The Lange 1 is a prime example of this An outsize date and an asymmetric dial arrangement, paired with a lavishly finished mechanical calibre – in the mid-90’s, this was deemed a provocation by many The Lange 1’s unusual design garnered plenty of attention for the brand – just what the company needed

The historic event in 1994 put A.

Lange & Söhne back on the world map This year, the brand celebrates its 25th anniversary and it is doing so with a collection of different models in white gold that pay tribute to the key milestones of the Lange 1 watch family The hallmarks they share are argenté-coloured dials in solid silver with printed deep-blue numerals and hour markers, blue date numerals, and matching blue alligator leather straps with grey seams.

The Lange 1 (the base model) leads the series of “25th Anniversary” Lange 1 models It has remained virtually unchanged in design since 1994 What has changed, however, is its movement.

The manually wound Calibre L121.1 introduced in 2015 features a precisely jumping outsize date display and a freely oscillating Lange balance spring Paired with a large cam-poised balance, it boasts improved rate accuracy The opulently finished movement – as was the case with the first Lange 1 Calibre L9010 – is fitted with twin mainspring barrels with a power reserve of 72 hours as well as other typical Lange hallmarks of quality.

Noteworthy elements include the three-quarter plate made of untreated German silver, eight screw gold chatons, and the hand-engraved balance cock In this special edition, it showcases a very special engraving: the outsize date with a “25” that symbolises the 25th anniversary The manually executed lines of the new engraving motif are blued for the first time and thus stand out with a particularly rich contrast

The Lange 1 “25th Anniversary”, limited to 250 pieces, has another prominent feature: the engraved hinged cuvette crafted from solid white gold.
