After the successful introduction of a new version of the iconic Lange 1 last year, A. Lange & Söhne introduces a white gold model with luminous hands and hour markers to join the updated Lange 1 family.
To complement the models in pink gold, yellow gold and platinum, A. Lange & Söhne is now presenting a model with a 38.5-millimetre case in white gold. The luminous hands and hour markers on the argenté-coloured dial are crisply legible even in the dark, providing information on the precise time and remaining power reserve.
Combining a large balance wheel with eccentric poising weights and a free-sprung Lange balance spring, the manually wound calibre L121.1, newly presented in 2015, assures superior accuracy. Refinements come to the fore in details such as the instantaneously jumping outsize-date display. The calibre features the proven twin mainspring barrel with a power reserve of three days. Lange-typical quality hallmarks include eight screwed gold chatons, a three-quarter plate made of untreated German silver and decorated with Glashütte ribbing, a precision beat-adjustment system with a whiplash spring and a set screw, as well as a manually engraved balance cock.
A. Lange & Söhne is one of our favourite brands, and the updated White Gold model is very nice!
The Lange 1 in white gold will retail for €31,700 Euros
