A. Lange and Söhne’s iconic timepiece, the Lange 1 now comes in a smaller size, but the Little Lange 1 stands up to its larger precursor in every way.
A playful take on colours and materials take centerstage with the Little Lange 1, a smaller, 36.8mm version of the watchmaker’s design classic. The Lange 1, launched in 1994 set A.Lange and Söhne firmly amongst the upper echelon of watchmakers across the world. Featuring the same asymmetric dial and prominently displayed outsize date, the ‘little’ update of the classic offers as much as the original timepiece in terms of technical and artisanal features.
The Little Lange 1 has three variations, each representative of a unique style. For those looking to make a statement, the watch is available with a striking purple dial in guilloched gold and set in a white-gold case. The dark background stands out against the rhodium plated gold hands and appliques.
The second variation of the Little Lange 1, features a grey guilloched dial set in white gold which gives the watch an icy cool sophistication. In direct contrast, the guilloched dial of the pink-gold third variation highlights the subtle brown of the case, hands and appliques. All three models of the Little Lange 1 come with luxurious alligator straps in colours which reflect their respective dials, amplifying the striking effect of the hues.
Art meets function
This updated classic timepiece has a manually wound calibre L121.1. movement, which was introduced by the watchmaker with Lange 1and ticks under the asymmetric dial. The watch includes a twin mainspring barrel which ensures continuous running for three days. Lange’s distinctive UP/DOWN power reserve indicator, the instantaneously jumping outsize date and a balance that has eccentric poising weights and a hairspring manufactured in-house are all featured in this elegant watch.
The iconic brand’s signature artisanship is highlighted by the three-quarter German silver plate decorated with Glashütte ribbing, eight screwed gold chatons and the whiplash-spring beat adjustment on the hand-engraved balance cock.
A thoroughly modern, elegant take on a classic piece of watchmaking mastery, the Little Lange 1 is the perfect accessory for the independent woman of today. The bold colours and chic design of the watch makes it a HOT pick for the girl who knows what she wants.
