A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Ref. 191.028 18k
A proper German icon.
Lange & Söhne may not be as famous as Patek Philippe or Rolex, but if one thing is certain it’s the fact that Lange & Söhne’s craftsmanship and finish is by far superior to many respected Swiss watch brands. It was Ferdinand Lange who started the watch business in Glashütte in 1945 and this meant the beginning of the well-respected German watchmaking region. It was 1871 when Ferdinand’s two sons joined his company and the family company ‘A. Lange & Söhne’ was officially founded. Throughout Lange’s existence, many impressive movements and watches were crafted, this is why the brand is the most beloved and respected manufacturer which is not from Switzerland.
Lange & Söhne is known for working a lot with precious metals and crafting all of their own parts with their own classical style. This watch is the ‘Lange 1′, a true icon in the L&S collection. It’s famous for its beautiful double dial design with applique Roman numerals and the double date window on top. The white gold case has an elegant and round design with descending lugs making it a perfect fit on the wrist.
The condition of this 2005 piece is truly like new with not a single dent or scratch in the case. The deep blue dial, introduced in the early 2000s is a lust to the eye, the two subdials have a slightly more matte finish which gives the face of the watch a nice contrast. Right above the seconds’ dial you will find a power reserve indicator, which has a maximum of 72 hours in this timepiece. The crystal case back will give you a glimpse of the fine craftsmanship Lange & Söhne performs on their movements.
This beautiful and classy watch just had a full service by Lange & Söhne in Glashütte, it comes with warranty and it’s a shame it’s not being worn at the moment. Feel free to contact us of more information or stop by the shop to see this german quality piece in real life. We’re located in the Reestraat, Amsterdam.
