Lot Essay

This endangered species strap is shown for display purposes only and is not for sale. The watch will be supplied with a calf leather strap.

The present Lange 1 Moonphase model is preserved in very good overall condition and sold with the full set of accessories.

Launched in 2002, the Lange 1 Moonphase model features another technological advancement, a waxing and waning moon that never stands still as long as the watch is wound. While most moon phases click into position and don't move again until a certain segment of time has passed (typically one day), the Lange 1 Moonphase offers the most reliable depiction of moon time because it is always in motion.

The moonphase disc is connected to the continuum of the hour wheel and emulates the moon's orbit with a deviation of merely .002 percent. The new Lange 1 Moonphase errs by only 1.9 seconds per day, or 57 seconds per lunar orbit (a total of about 11 minutes per year), as compared to other moonphase watches whose inaccuracies result in approximately 44 minutes per year.

As commonly seen for the German manufacturer, the three quarter plate movement is in German silver and provides its wearer with a 72 hour power reserve. Of highest technical and mechanical precision, it stops when the crown is pulled by its wearer, enabling the upmost precision for time-setting.

The silver dial contains the patented oversized date window with two openings framed in white gold as well as a subsidiary second’s counter, all residing within a three-piece pink gold case of elegant proportions.
