About the brand 

Let us take you on a luxurious journey through the history and legacy of A. Lange & Söhne. Established in 1845 by Ferdinand Adolph Lange, this German watchmaking powerhouse has a rich history of innovation and excellence in horology.

Ferdinand Adolph Lange was a trained watchmaker and mechanics graduate who returned home to Saxony after studying under master horologists for a decade. He established a whole watchmaking industry in the region, bringing prosperity to and alleviating poverty in the area. He was the first in Saxony to introduce the metric system into watchmaking and even trained his children in the business, adding the & Söhne to A. Lange & Söhne.

The Lange family continued to push watch technology further with Emil and Richard Lange patenting quarter repeaters and chronographs, developing the up-down power reserve indicator, and improving chronometer restraints. The brand's headquarters were destroyed in a Soviet air strike during World War II, marking the end of the once-great name.

However, in 1990, Walter Lange, the great-grandson of Ferdinand Adolph, re-registered A. Lange & Söhne, re-establishing the brand in Glashütte. After four years of development and experimentation, the brand launched its first range of wristwatches in 1994, drawing inspiration from its bold past.

From the Lange 1 range to the Saxonia family, the Zeitwerk range, the 1815 collection, and the Richard Lange range, each collection reflects the brand's commitment to tradition and innovation. Outsized dates, solid gold or platinum cases, and galvanized solid-silver dials are stalwarts of the company's image. The brand's iconic, customized typography adds to its luxurious appeal.

The brand's attention to detail is legendary, including hand-engraved balance cocks and a multitude of different surface decorations and techniques such as circular graining, contour grinding, mirror polishing, Glashütte ribbing, sunray finishing, and perlage. The brand still hand-finishes all of its timepieces, honoring Emil Lange's wishes.

The brand's notable inventions and patents have sprung back into existence, with disengagement mechanisms, stop-seconds for tourbillons, and triple-split chronographs taking center stage. Celebrities from Brad Pitt and Ed Sheeran to Vladimir Putin and Bill Clinton have all strapped on A. Lange & Söhne timepieces.

In conclusion, A. Lange & Söhne is a luxurious and iconic watch brand that has revolutionized horology through innovation and tradition. Each timepiece reflects the brand's commitment to excellence, attention to detail, and luxurious appeal. If you're looking for a timepiece that stands the test of time, A. Lange & Söhne is a perfect choice.

About the watch

Let us introduce you to the A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Moon Phase, a timepiece that combines the iconic Lange 1 design with a stunning moon phase and day/night indication. This luxurious watch has been the anchor of the A. Lange & Söhne collection since the brand’s re-emergence in 1994, and it is still considered one of the most elegant pieces in the collection.

In this update, A. Lange & Söhne has made some subtle but welcomed changes to the Lange 1 Moon Phase. First, the addition of the new Lange 1 movement, the Calibre L121.3, which features an entirely different architecture compared to the previous model, resulting in improved performance and precision. Second, a new day/night indication has been incorporated right into the moon phase indication, which is visually attractive and also ingenious.

The visual impact of the updates is extremely subtle but lends a bit more elegance to the overall dial. With off-centered hours and minutes at 9, power reserve at 3, a large date at 2, and a small second and moon phase at 4:30, the layout remains the same. However, the new day/night indication is a separate solid-gold moon that pursues its orbit in the foreground, while a celestial disc, also made of solid gold, performs exactly one revolution every 24 hours. The disc shows different times of day with varying blue hues, creating a stunning contrast against the moon.

The new Lange 1 Moon Phase is a perfect example of how a classic design can be subtly updated with modern features and performance-enhancing technology. The new movement features an in-house balance wheel with six eccentric poising weights, allowing for adjustments to the rate, and a new date mechanism that makes an instant jump at midnight.

In conclusion, this A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Moon Phase is a luxurious and elegant timepiece that combines classic design with modern features and technology. With its stunning moon phase and day/night indication, this watch is a perfect addition to any horology enthusiast's collection.
