2019 marks the 25th birthday of the LANGE 1, first introduced in 1994. Its smaller sibling now comes in a special edition as well.

The LITTLE LANGE 1 has been a member of the Lange collection since 1998. In a limited edition of 25 pieces, it’s now available in white gold with a blue printed argenté-colored dial.

In the anniversary year, with a collection of no fewer than ten models that stand for the key milestones of the LANGE 1 watch family, A. Lange & Söhne pays tribute to probably its most recognizable face.

Little Lange 1 "25th Anniversary"

The LITTLE LANGE 1 “25th Anniversary” in white gold features deep-blue printed numerals and markers, blue date numerals, and a hand-engraved balance cock with blue accents. Even the relief-engraved number “25” adorns the balance cock as a reminder of the anniversary.

In terms of design and functionality, the watch corresponds with the original. This includes the off-center dial with the typical Lange outsize date and the UP/DOWN power-reserve indicator. For technical reasons, a push piece was recessed in the case for correcting the outsize date.

In 2018, the LITTLE LANGE 1 was fitted with the newly designed, manually wound calibre L121.1 and this has also been chosen for the anniversary model. It features a precisely jumping outsize date display as well as a large cam-poised balance with a freely oscillating Lange balance spring. The twin mainspring barrel delivers a power reserve of 72 hours.

The watch comes on a blue hand-stitched alligator leather strap with a contrasting seam in grey.
