Release Date: 2017 (Original Lange 1: 1994)
The original Lange 1 released in 1994 was designed for men, and many years later it inspired a design for women that reflects its original charm and beauty. The Little Lange 1 Moon Phase Watch is 1.7 mm smaller than the original one, which now has a perfect size of 36.8mm and a perfect pink gold polish.
- Case: 36.8mm diameter x 9.5mm height
- Case material: 18k polished rose gold with sapphire crystal on both sides
- Movement: Calibre L121.2 (in-house and hand-wound)
- Functions: Hours, minutes, small seconds, outsize date, moon-phase, and power-reserve indicator
- Dial: Silver hand-guilloche dial
- Power Reserve: 72H
- Strap: White alligator or black satin fabric
A. Lange & Sohne nailed the size, polish of rose gold, dial engraving, and galactical detailing down to the perfect combination for a feminine timepiece that would flatter any lady. It’s almost magical to see the shiny parts and pieces of the watch, even when you turn it on its back.
We know that looks are useless if the performance is mediocre. Good thing the Little Lange 1 Moon Phase Watch is equipped with a fine movement, the caliber L121.2, which has an impressive moonphase accuracy until 122.6 years. Not only that, you get 72 hours of power reserve with the same movement, too. To complete the package, the shock resistant balance wheel and lever escapement of this timepiece allows it to beat 21,600 semi-oscillations per hour. Impressive, right?
As with any self-wound watch, the Little Lange 1 Moon Phase Watch may not appeal to automatic calibre lovers. Only those with penchant for winding their own watches would understand this aspect is more of a pro than a con. On another note, the idea of having multiple straps that are easy to interchange hasn’t been entertained by the brand for this model. It can be quite good to provide more variety of design options, so that many more styles can be accented using the watch.
