On October 24, 1994, Walter Lange and Günter Blümein presented the first modern collections of A. Lange & Söhne at the charming Dresden Castle, with the signature Lange 1, Saxonia, Arcade and the Tourbillon Pour le Merite, getting A. Lange & Söhne back on everyone’s radar.
To mark the 22nd anniversary of the company’s revival, the German watchmaker has just released a special-edition of the classy Lange 1 Time Zone, this time finished in Honey Gold. Part of a limited series of just 100 units, this special edition keeps the iconic design elements of the Lange 1 intact, with a lovely 18k gold alloy case and details in the same precious material.
Harder than regular gold alloys and showing off a unique touch of style, Honey Gold has a soft, almost mellow, gold hue unlike any other. For this special edition, A. Lange & Söhne went for a 41.9 mm case, a blue GMT indicator and an identically blue peripheral ring of the second timezone, with the dial coming in solid silver and the various appliques matching the honey gold.
Making things tick is an in-house caliber named L031.1, which includes 417 parts and it’s backed up by 72 hours worth of power. The A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Time Zone in Honey Gold is finished off by a matching dark brown alligator strap, with a honey gold prong buckle and a pretty cool $64,300 price-tag.
