Introducing The A. Lange & Söhne Grand Lange 1 '25th Anniversary'

Introducing The A. Lange & Söhne Grand Lange 1 ’25th Anniversary’

Snappy Take

Today we have the seventh model in a series of 25th anniversary restricted versions created by A. Lange & Söhne to commemorate the dispatch of the original Lange 1 back in 1994. That Lange 1, presented by Günter Blümlein and Walter Lange at a press conference in Germany, proceeded to become a pretty moment symbol and the most generally recognizable plan of the relaunched A. Lange & Söhne. 

As if proof of its prosperity was required, one can highlight the several different executions, developments, and versions that the Lange 1 has generated. Today we take a gander at the Grand Lange 1, which at 41mm in diameter provides somewhat more wrist presence than your standard 38.5mm Lange 1. Similarly as with other models in this growing series of Lange 1s celebrating the assortment’s 25th anniversary, this one comes in a white metal case with a silver dial and blue accents as painted markers and blued steel hands. What’s more, similarly as with other models we’ve seen for this present year to date (with the special case the 250-piece Lange 1 LE dispatched at SIHH) this person is restricted to 25 pieces, which implies that it is probably going to be very difficult to get. 

Starting Thoughts

I like the clean simplicity of the Lange 1, which has the entirety of the characteristic equilibrium of the original 38.5mm Lange 1 gratitude to a larger development that was specifically intended to keep those proportions unblemished. In fact, that is something that I have consistently admired about Lange. While the 38.5mm size feels perfect to me, I can undoubtedly perceive how watch devotees, and in particular watch lovers with larger wrists, may need a Lange 1 that was a touch larger. With 41mm Lange 1 they get that, with no compromise regarding the carefully adjusted proportions of the dial. 

Turning this watch over, you’ll also see that the Grand Lange 1’s beautifully finished and decorated development fills out the casecback perfectly. What’s more, the obvious flourish showing that this piece has a place with the anniversary Lange 1 assortment is there as the hand-engraved offset rooster with a blue “25.”
