THE FIRST-HOUR ICON
The LANGE 1 is the icon of our Saxon manufactory. Hardly any timepiece won more awards in the past decades. When the first four watches were presented in 1994 after A. Lange & Söhne was incorporated anew, it became the focus of interest and since then has symbolised a courageous new beginning as well as the continuation of a long-standing horological tradition.
The special status of this timepiece is rooted in the combination of traditional elements of Saxon watchmaking artistry and an extraordinary dial design paired with useful innovations such as Lange’s typical outsize date. The design of the LANGE 1 follows a clear-cut principle: all displays are arranged off-centre, forming an isosceles triangle. The date is indicated in a gold frame with numerals that are about three times larger than those in watches of comparable dimensions.
