  • Artist Biography

    A. Lange & Söhne

    German • 1845

    Originally founded in 1845 by Ferdinand Adolph Lange in Glashütte, Dresden, Germany, the firm established an entire watchmaking culture and industry in Glashütte. The brand quickly became Germany's finest watchmaker, first creating dependable, easy-to-repair watches before going on to produce some of the world's finest complicated pocket watches, including Grande Sonnerie watches, tourbillon watches and Grande Complications.

    On the final day of World War II, their factories were destroyed by Russian bombers, and in 1948 the brand was confiscated by the Soviet Union. Following the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1990, Ferdinand's great grandson Walter Lange re-established the brand with the objective to once again produce top-quality luxury watches. Now part of the Richemont Group, its original vintage and modern creations are highly coveted by collectors. Key models from the modern era include the Lange 1, Pour Le Mérite Tourbillon and the Zeitwerk.

Ref. 191.028
Introduced in 2017, A. Lange & Söhne launched the Blue Series with four emblematic models: Lange 1 Daymatic, Saxonia, Saxonia Automatic, and like the present example, Lange 1. Crafted from solid silver galvanically coated in rich deep blue and graced with solid-gold appliques and hour markers, the series was not a novelty from the brand but actually dates back to the first blue dial Lange 1 ref. 101.027 produced in the 1990s. While the series is not a limited edition, the Blue Series is produced in only low numbers and as a one-off production, making it a rare and scarce variant of its kind. Powering the Lange 1 Blue Series is the second generation movement released in 2015, the caliber 121.1 with free-sprung balance wheel that provides up to 72 hours of power reserve. Found complete with full accessories including International Guarantee, inner and outer boxes.
