Description

Since the re-birth of the brand in 1994, a new model was launched called “Lange 1” with a new feature,  the now famous outsized date window, it took inspiration from an early clock designed by Adolf Lange in 1830.
The outsized date and the asymmetric dial arrangement became one of their trademark and the ‘Lange 1’ a classic in their collection.

The other notable member of the family is the Datograph model, first introduced with a 39mm case size (platinum 403.035 and rose gold 403.032), the later version got upgraded with a power reserve indication called “Datograph Up & Down” and with 2mm larger case, available in platinum (405.035) and rose gold (405.031).  The white gold version comes with a more complex movement, they added the perpetual calendar on a grey dial (410.038).

Early 2017, the grail “Datograph Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon” (740.036) was released in a limited edition of 100 pieces only.

It has a 41,5mm case in platinum surrounding a chic black dial. Center silver hands indicates the hours & minutes while the additional hand is for the fly-back chronograph function. Activated by the side push-pieces, you can follow it with the help of the white graduated outer ring. An outsized date window is located at 12 o’clock and a discreet but beautiful moon-phases indicator is visible at 6 o’clock. The 30-minutes counter displayed at 3 o’clock includes the month counter and the leap year indicator. The small seconds counter at 9 o’clock shows also the day and the 24-hour indication.

The beautiful manual winding movement is visible through a sapphire case-back and reveals at 12 o’clock a majestic tourbillon! This entire vision is just gorgeous.

The Datograph is considered by many collectors as; one of the best chronographs in the industry.

In January 2019, the brand introduced a similar model but in white gold with a pink gold dial under reference 740.056 also limited to 100 pieces.

 

 

A.Lange & Sohne – bio

Founded in 1845 by Ferdinand Adolph Lange in Glashütte, Germany.  The company soon became the pioneers in watchmaking in their region.  After Ferdinand’s death his sons, Emil and Richard continued to produce the finest pocket watches of their time.
During World War II, they were victims of bombardments and eventually even got nationalised by the Soviet administration and ceased to exist. At the fall of the Berlin wall in 1990, the grand son of the founder, Walter Lange, revived the company with the help of Swiss watch manufacturers such as IWC & Jaeger-LeCoultre.   The brand introduced their new collection in 1994 with success and by 2000 the company got acquired by the Richemont Group.
