A hand-engraved lunar disc in white gold distinguishes the LITTLE LANGE 1 MOON PHASE “25th Anniversary” – presented on the occasion of the 25th birthday of the LANGE 1 – from the standard version. It has a diameter of 36.8 millimetres and debuts in a limited edition of only 25 watches.
The LITTLE LANGE 1 MOON PHASE “25th Anniversary”
As the ninth of a total of ten special models, the LITTLE LANGE 1 MOON PHASE “25th Anniversary” recalls the spectacular presentation of the LANGE 1 on 24 October 1994. The hallmarks of the two-toned anniversary edition include a white-gold case, an argenté-coloured dial in solid silver with blue-printed elements and blued steel hands. The colour concept is echoed in a characteristic movement detail: 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. 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 moon-phase display is so precise that it only has to be corrected by one day every 122.6 years. As was already the case with the GRAND LANGE 1 MOON PHASE “25th Anniversary”, this special edition also features a handengraved 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.
Price: €42,300 including German tax
