Introducing The A. Lange & Söhne Little Lange 1 Moon Phase ’25th Anniversary’
By now you already know it’s a major year for the Lange 1. This excellence here is the penultimate release (10th of ten) to mark the 25th Anniversary of the family. At 36.8 mm, it is the first reference to come in the smaller little Lange 1 bundle, which appeared in 2017.
Limited to 25 pieces, the two-conditioned blue steel hands, argenté dial and blue printing topic proceeds. Like Stephen has addressed previously, this treatment is wonderful. It really must be believed to be appreciated. The printed dial adds a degree of informality and the blue super flies against the silver. Looking into it back we see the blue-filled engraving of the offset chicken with the little inlayed 25 date window. On the back, the manufacture caliber L121.2, as you’d expect, carefully completed, cleaned and decorated by hand, runs at a frequency of 21,600 semi-motions an hour and, with a twin mainspring barrel, just should be twisted every three days.
I’m a fan. It’s no secret that I have a colossal measure of respect for the brand and the Lange 1 is the stud in the line-up. The star of the show here (sorry, I needed to) is without question the moonphase. Very close, the hand work on show really is a piece of art. Having seen the watch being worn on a female wrist, proportionally, similar as the dial, it’s perfectly adjusted. Traditionally this size has been squarely centered around the female market, however given the achievement of various reissue pieces in and around that size inside the most recent a year, it would also look great on smaller male wrists. That said, with a kept cutting back going on, and the rise in interest in mechanics and completing among female buyers, I have no uncertainty this little person will be gone before we know it.
