The Lange & Sohne Lange 1 has become one of the true icons of high German watchmaking and haute horology. This watch was launched in 1994, only four years only four years after the company’s rebirth . This year marks a very special historic moment in time. The company’s founder Ferdiand Adolf Lange’s 200 birthday.
To celebrate this, A Lange & Sohne has released a NEW Lange 1 with a new movement. Its legendary design has remained unchanged, but its inner life has been technically refined. The manually wound L121.1 calibre now features a precisely jumping outsize date display. Its escapement consists of a balance wheel with eccentric poising weights and a free-sprung balance spring crafted in-house. The calibre is still endowed with a twin mainspring barrel for a power reserve of three days as well as with classic hallmarks such as the three-quarter plate, the hand-engraved balance cock and gold chatons secured with thermally blued screws. The second generation of this classic watch is available immediately.
