A.Lange & Söhne launches ‘Little 1’ for 25th anniversary
A.Lange & Söhne has launched the Little Lange 1 as part of the Lange 1’s 25th birthday celebrations. A member of the Lange collection since 1998, this year a special edition has been released in celebration of its sibling’s anniversary. It is limited to 25 pieces and is now available in white gold with a blue printed argente-coloured dial. Like its predecessors, the anniversary piece’s dial comes in solid silver with deep-blue printed numerals and markers, blue date numerals, and a hand-engraved balance cock with blue accents. It comes with a blue hand-stitched alligator leather strap with a contrasting seam. Its case diameter is 1.7mm smaller than that of the classic Lange 1, but in terms of design and functionality, it corresponds with the original. In 2018, the Little Lange 1 was fitted with the newly designed, manually wound calibre L121.1 that also runs in the anniversary model. It features a precisely jumping outsize date display as well as a large cam-poised balance with a freely oscillating Lange balance spring. The twin mainspring barrel delivers power for 72 hours.
