  • Catalogue Essay

    A Lange & Söhne’s Lange 1 family is a superb modern classic. First released in 1994, the collection displays a contemporary look, which a quarter of a century later, has a sophisticated appeal for its design and technical innovation. The dial is clear and legible with the now famous patented oversized date apertures inspired by the Five-Minute Clock of the Semper Opera House in Dresden. The off center hours indication further set the brand apart from all others with their incredible vision. Since its inception, the Lange 1 line has transformed from a “simple” time-only wristwatch with date to include a variety of complications from moon phase and perpetual calendar to size differences from the Little Lange 1 with a 36mm case to the present Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase with a 41mm diameter case.

    The brand released the Grand Lange 1 model in 2003 with an oversized 41.9mm diameter case. In 2012, Lange redesigned the Grande Lange 1, reducing its diameter to 40.9mm. The Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase, with the updated caliber L095.3, was released in 2014 and included a moon phase sector at 12 o’clock within the offset time display.

    A. Lange & Söhne is renowned for their high quality, masterful movements, and the present watch is a wonderful representation of their standards. In 18 karat pink gold and well-preserved in excellent condition, it is offered complete with its original accessories.

  • 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.
