Full Moon

Bespoke - - SHOOT -

Built on the prin­ci­ples of me­chan­i­cal pre­ci­sion, high-qual­ity fin­ish­ing, near per­fect re­li­a­bil­ity and re­strained aes­thet­ics, A. Lange & Söhne is the quin­tes­sen­tial con­nois­seur’s watch brand, and ever since it re-emerged in 1994 (af­ter hav­ing been de­stroyed in World War II), the Lange 1 with its idio­syn­crat­i­cally Ger­man di­am­e­ter of 38.5mm has been the cor­ner­stone of the brand’s mod­ern-day suc­cess. Now, fol­low­ing on from last year’s sub­tle face-lift of the Lange 1, it’s the turn of the more ex­clu­sive Lange 1 Moon Phase. The watch’s most no­table up­grade is a dis­creet day and night in­di­ca­tor on the moon phase, which starts as pale blue in the day and grad­u­ally turns darker and darker blue to­wards night, but other changes, in line with the 2016 re­design, in­clude an en­hanced three-day power re­serve and an out­size date that now jumps pre­cisely at mid­night. The new Lange 1 Moon Phase is avail­able in three guises: a plat­inum ver­sion (be­low left), priced at 56,500 USD; and a white (be­low mid­dle) or pink gold (be­low right) for 43,500 USD.
