  • Catalogue Essay

    Arguably one of the modern classics of 20th century horology, A. Lange & Söhne’s Lange 1 enters its quarter century as sophisticated and contemporary today as when it was released in 1994. The dial is clear and legible with the patented oversized date windows, and the eccentric hour indication sets the timepiece apart from all the others brands. The caliber 901.1 three quarter plate movement provides a 72 hour power reserve, and features a stop second mechanism. The watch is the embodiment of German engineering and precision timekeeping.

    Presented in wonderful overall condition, this lovely pink gold model Lange 1 is an honest example of the core values held dear by A. Lange & Söhne. Accompanied with box and papers, it is an excellent opportunity to own a true classic, both to wear and treasure.

  • 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.
