More about Grosse Lange 1 Luminous
A. Lange & Söhne is the earliest and one of the greatest precision German watchmakers since 1845. Walter Lange, the fourth generation of Lange horologists, brought the family company back to life in 1990, after the reunification of Germany. He introduced four lines, including the Lange 1, the very first Lange watch of the new era. Made in 18K yellow, white, or pink gold, and platinum, it has been upgraded since and a more recent version is this distinctive Grande Lange 1 luminous, reference 115029. This is a rare and fine, manually winding, 18K white gold Grande Lange 1 luminous wristwatch with a D. matte-black off-set hour dial, luminous Roman numerals and minute indexes and alpha hands, and a power reserve sub-dial. The over-sized double date windows are clever because each digit has its own gear wheel. What's fascinating about the dial is how it's designed, with none of the components overlapping, somewhat like the dashboard of a sports car. The three-piece body has a solid, rounded, polished bezel and a push button on the band to correct the date. The case back is a transparent sapphire crystal with 6 screws for watching the caliber L901.2 movement beat at 21,600 vibrations per hour. The double mainspring barrel delivers a 72-hour power reserve rather than just 48. It has 53 jewels of which nine are set in gold chatons fastened by blued screws, which hold the jewels in more securely. The movement is built of the traditional components found in the renowned Lange pocket watches, including the 3/4 plate made of untreated German silver, a hand-engraved fan-designed balance cock, and the horseshoe-shaped precision whiplash index adjuster. The whiplash spring allows for micrometer-screw adjustment with a swan-neck regulator, and the mechanism can be started without taking apart the balance and changing previous adjustments. There is a straight-line lever escapement with a monometallic balance adjusted to 5 positions, a flat, self-adjusting balance spring, a shock absorber, a hack mechanism, and an engraved balance bridge. The crocodile leather strap has an 18K white gold buckle and the movement, dial, and case are all signed.
