Saxony manufacture, A. Lange & Söhne has the perfect offerings for those keen on giving a gift that can freeze their special moment into a timeless memory. The Lange 1 Moon Phase and the Little Lange 1 Moon Phase are both timepieces that are crafted to perfection and are bound to impress your ‘special someone’.
LANGE 1 MOON PHASE – A moon for days and nights
More than 50 years after the first spacecraft landed on the moon’s surface, we have still not yet unlocked all of the secrets of our planet’s companion. This mystery keeps humankind interested in our closest celestial neighbour and underpins the fascination of one of the most coveted astronomical complications: the moon-phase display. It tracks the lunar cycle – with an average duration of 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes and 3 seconds – so accurately that it takes 122.6 years for the display to deviate from the true synodic period by just one day.The asymmetric solid-silver dial sets a remarkably harmonious stage for the luminous time and power-reserve indications complemented with an outsize date, the moon-phase display, and the day/night indicator. The LANGE 1 MOON PHASE is available in white gold/black, pink gold/argenté, and platinum/rhodié case/dial combinations.
LITTLE LANGE 1 MOON PHASE – The moon in a fascinating interplay of colour and structure
The LITTLE LANGE 1 MOON PHASE provides a persuasive backdrop for the enigmatic aura of the moon. Endowed with a new movement, the elegant model features a guilloched, argenté-coloured dial accommodated in a 36.8-millimetre pink-gold case.Compared to the LANGE 1 MOON PHASE, this latest version of the classic timepiece is 1.7 millimetres smaller. The warm gloss of the polished pink-gold case contrasts with the exquisitely guilloched, argenté-coloured gold dial of the LITTLE LANGE 1 MOON PHASE. Featuring two golden moons, the lunar disc of this model is also argenté-coloured. The astronomical complication emulates the synodic orbit of the earth’s companion so accurately that it only needs to be corrected by one day every 122.6 years. Shiny pink-gold hands and appliques accentuate the asymmetric dial with its precisely jumping outsize date display. The delicately gradated colour concept is immaculately complemented with a white alligator leather strap that is secured with a pink-gold prong buckle.
