  • Catalogue Essay

    First 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 due to its timeless style and functionality.

    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.

    Cased in yellow gold and paired exuberantly with an almost pale champagne dial, the present example is a wonderful discontinued iteration from circa 2007. Complete with its full set of accessories, this handsome timepiece preserved in excellent overall condition is the perfect travel companion.

  • 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.
