  • Catalogue Essay

    This large and attractive Grand Lange 1 features a black and grey dial that recalls the design codes of the famed watchmaker. Bearing a 42mm diameter case, it is more significant than its predecessors and has an immense presence on the wrist. The back of the watch reveals a beautifully decorated caliber L901.2, with the instant recognizable traditional ¾ untreated German silver decorated with Glashütte stripe and engraved swan neck micrometer regulator that has developed a warm gold patina adding on another level of desirability to the watch.

    The present lot even though was not a limited edition but was intended for sale exclusively in A.Lange & Söhne boutiques worldwide during the time of launch. Accompanied with its original guarantee card and a leather folder will impress any connoisseurs.

  • 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.
