Introducing: The A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 '25th Anniversary'

Fast Take

It’s been 25 years since Walter Lange and Günther Blümlein declared the first flood of new fake watch prices to come out under the reorganized A. Lange & Söhne. Among those very first pieces was a plan that was to proceed to become Lange’s symbol, the fake watch prices that could be seen across a room and in a flash identified: the Lange 1. Compared with other symbols like the Calatrava or the Submariner, the Lange 1’s 25 years make it youthful. Still it’s difficult to think about a solitary fake watch prices family that has implied more to a brand than the Lange 1 has to A. Lange & Söhne.

For the 25th Anniversary of what is apparently Lange’s most popular timepiece, we have a white gold restricted release of 250 pieces featuring a white gold case, a strong silver dial, and most interestingly, a hunter case back. Open that case back and you will see a fully decorated physically twisted Lange caliber 121.1 development featuring an equilibrium chicken that has been decorated with blue accents just as with a relief engraving of the number 25 that clearly recalls the enormous date display that has come to be known as one of the fundamental plan components of the Lange 1.

With the hunter case shut, you can see that the engraved, pivoted cuvette depicts a structure that is in fact the Lange manufacture building tracing all the way back to 1873, alongside the names Gunther Blumlein and Walter Lange and the words “25 JAHRE LANGE 1.”

Lange collectors taking a gander at this anniversary fake watch prices may have a feeling that they’ve been here before. That is on the grounds that the dial appears to be a strong gesture to the Lange 1 ref. 101.027x, a clique exemplary, with its printed dial, blued steel hands, and the two-tone, recessed nature of the dial. This fake watch prices like the 101.027x, also has a white gold case. This dial is also very similar to the silver dial variation of one of the rarest Lange 1s of all, the 101.026 in hardened steel. For an in-depth take a gander at the main Lange 1 models of the most recent 25 years, look at the Reference Points article I wrote in the HODINKEE Magazine Volume 3.

The Lange 1 ref. 101.027x, produced from around 2002 to 2008 and a faction exemplary to Lange collectors, appears to have been the inspiration of this restricted version anniversary piece.

Introductory Thoughts

Aesthetically, this is a white metal Lange 1 with blue accents in general. As one would expect, the development utilized is the new 121.1. Apparently, this is the solitary Lange 1 to feature a hunter caseback, a feature that ties this fake watch prices back to Lange’s more far off history as a pocket fake watch prices maker and furthermore recalls the early days of this reference, when it was free only with a shut caseback. It was just when retailers and collectors started requesting open backs to display Lange’s beautifully finished developments that the manufacture made that feature standard across the collection.
