BEACON IN THE NIGHT
WE CAST THE SPOTLIGHT ON LANGE’S FIRST LUMINOUS MOONPHASE DISPLAY.
GRAND LANGE 1 MOON PHASE “LUMEN”
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.
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.
