Lot Essay

Accompanied by an A. Lange & Söhne Guarantee dated June 17th, 1996, A. Lange & Söhne presentation box, product literature, and additional new crocodile strap.

The Lange 1 model was introduced in 1994, and was the first watch design produced by the company with their re-launch in the early 1990's. The patented oversized date display, inspired by the digital clock in Dresden's Semper Opera, improved legibility in comparison with more conventional date displays. The overall design of the watch, with characteristic off-center hour and minute display, combined with eccentric seconds and power reserve and the oversized date display, come together to demonstrate how tradition and ingenuity can come together in style.
