With A. Lange & Söhne instruction manual, leather wallet, fitted presentation box and outer packaging.
Introduced into the market in 2005, the Lange 1 Time Zone is another example of A. Lange & Söhne's conception of exceptional watchmaking, uniting several complications, aesthetics, readability and simplicity of use.
The model features two eccentric dials each with its own independent day/night indicator. Using a system which allows easy adjustment, the wearer can select the time zone to be displayed on the larger of the two dials: home time, or the local time in a particular country, or any other time zone. The second time zone can also be easily selected using a pushbutton and a rotating city ring. With each push, the city ring and the hands of the second time zone advance simultaneously one notch and one hour. The oversized date is automatically synchronized with the larger of the two dials.
The movement is Lange’s hand-wound calibre L031.1, the three quarter plate made of untreated German silver and decorated with Glashütte ribbing. The twin mainspring barrels provide a power reserve of three days when fully wound. The watch also features a stop second mechanism or hack feature which is activated when the crown is pulled out and a patented twin-disc mechanism for the display of the oversized date.
