EXPERIENCE THE PRECIOUSNESS OF TIME
The festive season has an abundance of special moments shared with friends and loved ones all over the world. We can look back on our joint achievements and look forward to future experiences and successes.
The artisanal perfection of A. Lange & Söhne timepieces reflect what we value most during this peaceful, celebratory season: the preciousness of time.
THE LANGE 1 – THE CELEBRATION OF WATCHMAKING ARTISTRY
The warm-hued model version of the LANGE 1 in pink gold represents the resplendence and festive spirit that is so characteristic of the holiday season. The signature off-centre dial displays of the multiple award-winning model follow the harmonious rules of the golden ratio: no display overlaps another, thus assuring superb legibility at any given time.
With traditional elements of Saxon precision watchmaking such as the three-quarter plate, screwed gold chatons and the screw balance paired with groundbreaking innovations, it became the epitome of Lange watchmaking artistry.
Since 2015, the manufacture calibre L121.1. has been at the heart of the LANGE 1. The manually wound movement assures that the instantaneously advancing outsize date display switches promptly at midnight.
The LANGE 1 is also equipped with a going train featuring a balance wheel with eccentric poising weights, and beneath the hand-engraved balance cock, a freely oscillating balance spring crafted in-house. The reliable twin mainspring barrel provides a power reserve of 72 hours.
THE 1815 ANNUAL CALENDAR – A STYLISH COMPANION THROUGHOUT THE YEAR
Surrounded by friends and loved ones, it is our wish to enjoy the holiday season with its quiet, contemplative moments, yet at some point, we will undoubtedly find ourselves back in our everyday life with commitments and a busy schedule. The 1815 ANNUAL CALENDAR is the perfect, elegant companion to take us through the year in style. The displays for the date, day of the week and month ensure that we never lose track of important appointments.
An elaborate calendar mechanism automatically recognises which months have 30 and 31 days. The display must be manually adjusted only once a year, at the transition from the last day of February to the first day of March. Accurate to 122.6 years, the moon-phase display tracks the orbit of the golden celestial body across the nocturnal star-studded sky.
Not only does the 1815 ANNUAL CALENDAR leave a lasting impression thanks to its technical complexity but also because of its lucid arrangement of the displays on the argenté-coloured dial. This also valid for the manually wound calibre L051.3: its particular highlights can be admired through the transparent sapphire-crystal caseback of the watch in resplendent pink gold.
The pursuit of artisanal perfection pertaining to even the smallest details – once Ferdinand Adolph Lange’s driving force – comes to the fore in the elaborately finished, manually crafted movement that is assembled twice; it also confers the distinctive radiance upon the contemporary masterpieces of the Saxon manufacture.
“It is our manufacture’s aspiration to never stand still. But in order to proceed in the right direction, it is sometimes necessary to briefly pause and consider,” explains Lange-CEO Wilhelm Schmid.
“During the holiday season, many people take the time to reflect and ask themselves: what are my origins and where am I heading? Both timepieces are an expression of these two concepts: whereas, in a unique way, the 1815 ANNUAL CALENDAR is emblematic of watchmaking traditions in which we are rooted, the LANGE 1 is a symbol of a new beginning that still sets our course today.”
