  • Catalogue Essay

    Initially released in 2005, the Lange 1 Time Zone was the first model manufactured by the firm to feature a dual time complication with a city ring. Retaining its iconic asymmetrical Lange 1 dial layout with its large date display, the Lange 1 Time Zone is simply a practical choice for jet setters around the world.

    Simple to operate and finished to the high standards of the Glashütte based manufacturer, the Lange 1 Time Zone differs slightly from your regular dual time wristwatch. Instead A. Lange & Söhne finessed the dual time wristwatch by showcasing the additional time zone in an entirely separate dial. Fitted with a city ring that is activated via a pusher at 8 o’clock, once pressed, the additional time zone adjusts itself to the city indicated by an arrow positioned on the dial of the additional time zone at 5 o’clock.

    The present example Lange 1 Time Zone Buenos Aires Limited Edition in white gold was released with 100 examples. Made specifically for the first South American A. Lange & Söhne retailer, Simonetta Orisini, the present example in white gold features Buenos Aires on the city wheel instead of Rio De Janeiro as well as featuring both Kiev and Moscow. Furthermore, it is together with the 25th anniversary edition the only white gold Lange 1 time zone to bear blued stainless steel hands. The present example numbered 3 is offered with its full set of accessories and is presented in excellent overall condition.

  • 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.
