The last bit of news coming out of SIHH 2015 that I wanted to cover regarding A. Lange & Söhne is the new Lange 1. Having been the brand’s face since its presentation in 1994, the Lange 1 has now received an update that reflects the horological experience accrued during a period of more than 20 years. Aside from the brand new caliber L121.1 (the 50th caliber in Lange’s portfolio of in-house movements), the remaining changes are subtle. Largely unchanged as regards its iconic design, the second generation is endowed with a slightly narrower bezel and a new manually wound calibre. Another upgrade is the instantaneous jumping outsize date which advances precisely at midnight. Below is a concise run-down on the new Lange 1, by Lange’s Head of Research & Development, Tino Bobe.
