Hodinkee Post: Introducing The A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 20th Anniversary Set
Guess what’s coming up…it’s the Lange 1’s birthday! Normally, it would be you who would get a present for the birthday boy/girl. But, on the contrary, A. Lange & Sohne is the one that’s offering us a treat. That treat is of course the Lange 1 Special Edition 20th Anniversary, announced just minutes ago in Hong Kong at Watches & Wonders. October of 1994 was an important month in Dresden because that’s when A. Lange & Sohne unveiled the Lange 1 at the presentation of its first wristwatch collection. It was a historical moment, mainly because it was a resurgence in design – the outsize date, superior finishing – and technical innovation – the three-day movement. The Lange 1 became not only Lange’s poster child, but also the outline for future manufacture.
