Lot Essay

The Lange 1A was created following the tradition of the historic and renowned "1A" quality pocket watches made by A. Lange & Söhne.
The model was made in a strictly limited edition of only 100 examples in yellow gold with engine-turned 18K gold dial to commemorate the inauguration of the second Lange manufactory building in 1998. The watches were produced between 1998 and 1999 and were immediately sold out.

The movement of the Lange 1A is fitted with a gold escape lever and gold escape wheel for which specially hardened white gold is used as it is much more wear-resistant than yellow gold. The pallet, escape wheel and balance bridges are also in gold and individually engraved by hand. The two tandem-wound mainspring barrels provide a power reserve of at least three days and allow a progressive power reserve indication.
