20 limited-edition sets of A. Lange & Söhne’s design icon
On the occasion of the 20th birthday of the LANGE 1, the eminent Saxon brand presents the LANGE 1 “20th Anniversary” watch set. It consists of the LANGE 1 and the LITTLE LANGE 1. The two models symbolise the significance of spending time together. The design of the two watches is gracefully balanced, like two harmonising voices in a duet.
Every big event has a magic moment. The introduction of the Lange 1 at the presentation of A. Lange & Söhne’s first wristwatch collection in Dresden on 24 October 1994 was such a moment. Those who attended the event will have noticed its historical significance. With its striking design, technical innovations such as the outsize date and the three-day movement as well as the perfection with which it was crafted, it became the face of the brand and the benchmark for many further developments.
The manufactory is commemorating the 20th anniversary with five limited-edition watch pairs consisting of the Lange 1 and the Little Lange 1, equipped with guilloched golden dials. Both models incorporate Lange’s L901.0 manufacture calibre. By coincidence, the movement has as many parts as a year has days – 365. The watches differ in diameter: 38.5 millimetres for the Lange 1 and 36.1 millimetres for the Little Lange 1. The ladies’ model features a precious bezel set with 64 brilliant-cut diamonds.
The sets are available in the following case/dial combinations: platinum/black, platinum/rhodié, white-gold/blue, pink-gold/argenté and pink-gold/black. Each of these different sets of the Lange 1 “20th Anniversary” is limited to 20 pairs as expressed by the hand-engraved “20” on the balance cock.
