WE CAST THE SPOT­LIGHT ON LANGE’S FIRST LUMINOUS MOON­PHASE DIS­PLAY.

THEWATCH

GRAND LANGE 1 MOON PHASE “LUMEN”

STANDOUTFEATURE

Its glow-in-the- dark moon­phase dis­play. Crafted from coated glass, the lu­nar disc fea­tures the out­line of moon and stars, cut out with a laser beam. The luminous com­pound be­neath shines through, cre­at­ing a whim­si­cal night-time tableau. Oh, and the moon­phase will only re­quire ad­just­ment in 122.6 years.

ALSONOTEWORTHY

Part of the dial is made from semi­trans­par­ent sap­phire- crys­tal glass. If you look closely, you can see parts of the two date discs through it. This glass al­lows UV light to pass through, charg­ing the luminous com­pounds be­neath so that the date discs are al­ready glow­ing when the date switches.
