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.
In 2003, the “Lange 1” (38.5mm) got bigger and was then rightly renamed “Grand Lange 1” (41.9mm) which also got redesigned in 2012 with a current size of 40.9mm upgraded with a thinner movement and case.

 

*The present model reference 117.035 was released in 2013 and is a collector’s favourite, very sought after they nicknamed it the “Lumen”, with its semi-transparent sapphire crystal dial that allows the light (UV spectra) to enter and charge the lume so all the functions glow in a pleasant green reminiscent of the northern lights.
It is the 1st transparent dial version out of the two “Lange 1 Lumen” released so far, another famous model was the Zeitwerk Phantom (limited to 100 only) followed by the last and recent Datograph Lumen that ends the tetralogy.

Our time piece bears an attractive single digit number (00x) out of the 200 pieces made and is available in  mint condition with its complete original set.

 


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.
