The LANGE 1 “25th Anniversary” is the prelude to a special edition on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the LANGE 1. Its dial features recesses, deep-blue numerals, markers and date numerals. The hands are made of blued steel. Further hallmarks include an engraved white-gold hinged cuvette and a balance cock, hand-engraved with the outsize date and blued lines.
After the fall of the Berlin Wall, Walter Lange, company founder Ferdinand Adolph Lange’s great-grandson, saw an opportunity to make his dream come true. Together with entrepreneur Günter Blümlein, he wanted to breathe new life into the venture that his great-grandfather had started in 1845. In Glashütte, the plan was to once again craft world-class timepieces under the A. Lange & Söhne brand.
Now, a quarter of a century has elapsed since the vision of Walter Lange and his partner Günter Blümlein became reality. On 24 October 1994, at the residential palace in Dresden, A. Lange & Söhne presented the first four wristwatches of the new era – among them the LANGE 1.
