  • Catalogue Essay

    The Lange 1 model appeared first on the market in 1994, coinciding with the new-era A. Lange & Söhne brand. The patented outsized date and asymmetrical dial allowed the Lange 1 to become an instant classic and their most recognizable model. Cased in a 42mm 18K white gold case, this Grand Lange 1 is the evolution of the original 38.5mm Lange 1 model, allowing for a bolder and more masculine appearance.

    The present watch, cased in white gold displays a striking bold black dial with luminous accents, giving the time piece a very sporty, yet refined look.

  • 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.
