Introducing: New A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Moon Phase, With A Hybrid Moonphase And Day/Night Indicator
At first look, the new Lange 1 Moon Phase looks pretty like the past form, however it’s a significantly extraordinary watch. Sitting under the dial is the new type L 121.3, another moonphase type dependent on the development controlling the 2015 update to the Lange 1 . It’s the twentieth in-house development by Lange to highlight a moonphase complication and it’s composed of 438 sections, including 47 gems and 8 screwed gold chatons. It has a 72-hour power save and is physically wound.
The enormous development here however is the new moonphase pointer. Down at five o’clock the moonphase is settled in the top portion of the running seconds register, yet it’s not only one straightforward circle. All things being equal, the strong gold moon pivots as you’d ordinarily expect a moonphase pointer to do (this present one’s precise to one day each 122.6 years) yet the sky circle in the back turns on its own once like clockwork. This implies that during the day the moon sits against a splendid blue ground and around evening time it is outlined in dim blue with differentiating laser-cut stars moving behind it.
The new Lange 1 Moon Phase is 38.5mm across and 10.2mm thick, and comes in three distinct designs – white gold with dark dial, pink gold with argenté dial, and platinum with rhodié dial. All component brilliant hour, moment, and force save hands, in addition to iridescent markers for the hours and the force hold pointers themselves. Fitting for a watch intended to be perused at night.
In both white gold and pink gold the Lange 1 Moon Phase is estimated at €39,500 (around $42,430 at season of distributing), while the platinum version is valued at €52,000 (roughly $55,860). Official costs in U.S. Dollars will be declared at SIHH in a couple weeks.
