  • Catalogue Essay

    Known for their class execution in horological masterpieces with a distinct aesthetic that has derived from the firm’s past innovations, A. Lange & Söhne has been widely recognized as one of the most successful and young brands to have made a positive impact in the community since the brand’s revitalisation in the early 1990s.

    While limited edition timepieces from the firm’s are always a treat, the Lumen series is perhaps one that ticks all boxes for lovers and enthusiasts of the brand. Characterised by a special tinted dial which allows UV light to pass through, thus charging the luminous material under the dial, it results in a fully luminous discs that alters the appeal of the timepiece by night. First introduced to the public in 2010 via the Zeitwerk, it was in 2012, where the firm released their second Lumen edition.

    The Grand Lange 1 lumen was the crowd pleaser in 2012 that was highly anticipated as the firm transformed one of their flagship models to the rare and elusive Lumen treatment. Cased in a 41mm diameter platinum case, it has all the distinctive traits of the Grand Lange 1, equipped with an oversized date display, power reserve indication and small seconds.

    Numbered 192 of a limited edition of 200 pieces, the present example Grand Lange 1 Lumen from circa 2014 is complete with its full set of accessories. Offered in excellent overall condition, collectors may now have a chance to acquire this rare and discontinued gem from A. Lange & Söhne.

  • 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.
