At the 25th anniversary of LANGE1, Lange launched LITTLELANGE1MOONPHASE with 18K white gold and hand-engraved moon phase disk, which is very different from the standard style. The watch is 36.8 mm in diameter and is limited to 25 pieces.
LITTLELANGE1MOONPHASE ’25thAnniversary’ is the ninth work of ten LANGE 125th anniversary special edition watches, reminiscent of the glorious moment when LANGE1 appeared on October 24, 1994. This watch continues the iconic two-tone design of the anniversary series, including an 18K white gold case, a silver-white dial made of solid silver, blue printed elements and blue steel hands. A special movement detail echoes the color design: the German silver balance wheel splint is engraved with blue lines, depicting the large calendar display in relief, and decorated with the number ’25’, which fits the theme of the anniversary. This watch comes with a dark blue alligator strap and 18K white gold buckle.
Like all manual winding watches in the LANGE1 series, LITTLELANGE1MOONPHASE, first introduced in 2017, is equipped with an eccentric dial, large calendar display and UP / DOWN power reserve indicator. The moon phase display is very accurate, and the watch only needs to correct one day of errors every 122.6 years. Just like GRANDLANGE1MOONPHASE ’25thAnniversary’, this special edition watch also has a hand-engraved moon phase disk. Six stars and multiple dots form the starry sky. Against the backdrop of a golden moon, the three-dimensional sky appears instantly.
The L121.2 calibre manufactured by Lange Watch Factory is carefully polished, decorated and embellished by hand. The vibration frequency can reach 21,600 times per hour. There is also a double barrel, which is wound only every three days.
