In the spirit of celebrating the Year of the Dragon, A. Lange & Söhne has artfully curated a selection of iconic timepieces from their renowned LANGE 1 collection. The Dragon-themed watches, crafted with precision and sophistication, pay homage to both the Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day.
The LANGE 1, a cornerstone of Lange’s legacy since its debut on October 24, 1994, ingeniously merges classic stylistic elements with innovative technology. From the traditional three-quarter plates to hand-engraved balance cocks, each watch embodies indispensable elements of German watchmaking. The dedication to precision is evident in design, movement development, engraving, polishing, and twofold assembly across the collection.
Embodying the spirit of the auspicious dragon, A. Lange & Söhne presents two 18K yellow gold timepieces – the LANGE 1 and the LANGE 1 TIME ZONE. The LANGE 1 features a unique dial configuration and an outsize date, captivating the industry with its precision. Crafted with an 18K yellow gold case and a solid silver champagne-colored dial, this exclusive model is only available at A. Lange & Söhne’s global flagship boutique.
The LANGE 1 TIME ZONE, with its superb legibility and exceptional functionality, combines sophisticated craftsmanship with practicality. Featuring ring-shaped day/night displays, a daylight-saving time indication, and an adjustable city ring, it allows wearers to easily set the time for a second time zone – perfect for celebrating the New Year with friends around the globe.
The series is enhanced with the 18K pink gold GRAND LANGE 1 MOON PHASE and the diamond-set LITTLE LANGE 1 MOON PHASE. The moon phase display, which precisely tracks the lunar cycle, is a compelling feature of these clocks. The diamond-set LITTLE LANGE 1 MOON PHASE, with a bezel studded with brilliant-cut diamonds, forms a luminous frame for the intriguing dial, representing the passage of time and cherished memories.
The GRAND LANGE 1 and LITTLE LANGE 1 are made of 18K white gold and have gray dials. Their designs are subtle and minimalist. These watches, which feature Lange’s hallmark outsize date display and the unmistakable “UP/DOWN” power-reserve indication, combine simplicity and outstanding elegance. The GRAND LANGE 1’s beveled chamfers provide harmonious transitions, and the LITTLE LANGE 1’s twisted concentric circle design lends a delicate gloss to its appeal.
As A. Lange & Söhne honors the Chinese New Year, these Dragon-themed timepieces stand as a testament to the brand’s commitment to never standing still, embracing tradition while continually innovating. Just like the dragon, these watches cannot be tamed, making them a symbol of prosperity, elegance, and the timeless allure of gold.
