  • Catalogue Essay

    Since the launch of A. Lange & Söhne’s Lange 1 in 1994, the signature asymmetric dial design that embodies the perfect ratio and architecture of the golden triangle had been a success and beloved by collectors. To cater a wider audience, A. Lange & Söhne released a larger variant, the Grand Lange 1 with a 42mm diameter case that has immense presence yet true comfort on the wrist.

    Presented in excellent condition and offered by its original owner, this stunning black dial Grand Lange 1 features an eccentric time display with overlapped subsidiary seconds and oversized apertures for date. Elevating the attractive to the timepiece, the hands and Roman numerals are further filled with luminescent material, giving this piece an striking black and neon green contrast.

  • 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.
