A. Lange & Söhne, Anniversaries and Novelties at SIHH 2019

A few days before the SIHH 2019, A. Lange & Söhne celebrated the round jubilee -25th anniversary- of its award-winning LANGE 1, with a white gold edition limited of 250 pieces. The watch’s special features include a deep-blue printed argenté dial with a recess, blue date numerals, a hinged cuvette with an engraving of Lange’s headquarters and a hand-engraved balance cock with blued lines. As always, the outsize date is about three times larger than the date display of other watches of comparable size.

Zeitwerk Date

Marking another milestone, the 10th anniversary of the manufacture’s Zeitwerk, the manufacture endowed its first mechanical wristwatch having a precisely jumping digital display with a newly designed movement that incorporates an additional function: the ring-shaped date display, perfectly harmonized with the Zeitwerk design, circles the grey dial in a 44.2mm white gold case harboring a red date. The new manually wound calibre L043.8 stands out with its clearly organized movement architecture.

White gold found its way to more A. Lange & Söhne pieces at this year’s SIHH: the reinterpreted Datograph Perpetual Tourbillon in a unique combination of flyback chronograph, perpetual calendar with moon phase, tourbillon with stop seconds and power-reserve indicator donning a pink gold dial; and the Richard Lange Jumping Seconds with a black dial, contrasted by red accents emphasizing the scientific-technical design of the timepiece.

A honey gold 100-pieces limited edition of the Langematik Perpetual also debuted at the salon. Proprietary to the brand, this specific material is more resistant than other gold alloys. The watch prides itself on displaying the correct date every day until the year 2100 through its proven self-winding calibre with zero-reset mechanism.
