A. Lange & Söhne has marked the occasion of the Lange 1’s 25th birthday with an anniversary version of the Little Lange 1 Moon Phase.
The new product, of which a limited number of 25 watches are currently available, is distinguished by a hand-engraved lunar disc in white gold.
The notable features of the anniversary edition include a white-gold case, an argenté-coloured dial in solid silver with blue-printed elements and blued steel hands.
The blue-filled engraving of the balance cock in German silver features a reliefed depiction of the outsize date with the number “25” to match the anniversary, while the watch is worn on a dark blue alligator leather strap with a white-gold buckle.
Like all manually wound timepieces of the Lange 1 family, the Little Lange 1 Moon Phase – first introduced in 2017 – has an off-centre dial with an outsize date and an UP/DOWN power-reserve indicator.
The brand claims that the moon-phase display is so precise that it only has to be corrected by one day every 122.6 years, while this special edition also features a hand engraved lunar disc.
Six stars and numerous little dots depict the starry sky and together with the golden moons form a three-dimensional heavenly canopy.
The manufacture calibre L121.2, painstakingly finished, polished and decorated by hand, runs at a frequency of 21,600 semi-oscillations an hour and thanks to its twin mainspring barrel only needs to be wound every three days.
