A hand-engraved lunar disc in white gold distinguishes the LITTLE LANGE 1 MOON PHASE presented on the occasion of the 25th birthday of the LANGE 1 from the standard version. It has a diameter of 36.8 millimetres and debuts in a limited edition of merely 25 watches.
As the ninth of a total of ten special models, the LITTLE LANGE 1 MOON PHASE “25th Anniversary” recalls the spectacular presentation of the LANGE 1 on 24 October 1994. The hallmarks of the systematically two-toned anniversary edition include a white-gold case, an argenté-coloured dial in solid silver with blue printed elements and blued steel hands. The colour concept is echoed by a characteristic movement detail: The blue lined engraving of the balance cock in German silver features a reliefed depiction of the outsize date with the number “25” to match the anniversary. The watch is worn on a dark blue alligator leather strap with a white-gold buckle.
As all manually wound timepieces of the LANGE 1 family, the LITTLE LANGE 1 MOON PHASE – first introduced in 2017 – has an asymmetric dial with an outsize date and an UP/DOWN power reserve display. The moon-phase indication is so precise that it only has to be corrected by one day every 122.6 years. As was already the case with the GRAND LANGE 1 MOON PHASE “25th Anniversary”, this special edition also features a hand-engraved lunar disc. Six stars and numerous little dots depict the starry sky and together with the applied golden moons form a three-dimensional heavenly canopy.
The manufacture calibre L121.2, painstakingly finished, polished, and decorated by hand, runs at a frequency of 21,600 semi-oscillations an hour and due to its twin mainspring barrel only needs to be rewound every three days.
