Big things from A Lange & Söhne.

New colours and a guil­loché dial comes to the Lit­tle Lange 1 col­lec­tion this year.

When A Lange & Söhne was re-es­tab­lished back in 1994, the Lange 1 was one of the four watches it pre­sented to the world. The watch had an over­sized date, a sub dial to tell the time and a small sec­onds counter, all ar­ranged in an asym­met­ri­cal fash­ion. Over time, thanks to this de­sign lan­guage, the Lange 1 has be­come a clas­sic icon for the brand.

To­day, there are many dif­fer­ent ref­er­ences within the Lange 1 fam­ily, all of­fer­ing dif­fer­ent com­pli­ca­tions, in­clud­ing world­timers, per­pet­ual cal­en­dars and even tour­bil­lons. This year, how­ever, in­stead of adding on an­other com­pli­ca­tion, the brand de­cided to add on three new ref­er­ences to the Lit­tle Lange 1 col­lec­tion, which, as the name sug­gests, of­fers the iconic de­sign of the col­lec­tion but in a smaller case.

Not only do the watches in the Lit­tle Lange 1 col­lec­tion come with a smaller case – 36.8mm, to be ex­act – it also comes with a fan­tas­tic guil­lochéd dial, fur­ther adding to the ar­ti­sanal value of the watch. The watches are avail­able in white or pink gold cases, and in dif­fer­ent dial colours. The one that truly stands out is the ref­er­ence with the pur­ple dial, which gives it an aes­thetic far from any­thing Lange has in its cur­rent line.

The move­ment be­neath the dial is the man­u­ally wound Cal­i­bre L121.1, orig­i­nally in­tro­duced with the Lange 1, that of­fers two main­spring bar­rels, an in­stan­ta­neous jump­ing out­size date, a bal­ance with ec­cen­tric pois­ing weights and an in-house man­u­fac­tured hair­spring.
