SIHH 2015: Introducing the New A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1. Live Pictures and Pricing.

This year at the SIHH 2015, A. Lange & Söhne presented a new iteration of the Lange 1. This new Lange 1 includes a slimmer bezel, a bigger balance wheel and some minor typography changes that are really hard to even notice. Here's our review of the A. Lange & Söhne Grand Lange 1 to see if you can spot the differences. Some of the main differences have to do with the thickness of the ALS font, the size of the letter 'I' after Glashütte and even the font on the 'Doppelfederhaus' writing at 6 o'clock. Ever since the first collection of the new era was presented in 1994, the Lange 1 has been the face of A. Lange & Söhne. Largely unchanged as regards its design, the second generation is endowed with a new manually wound calibre and a precisely jumping outsize date. It advances by one day exactly at midnight and therefore always delivers a doubt-free reading. Fitted with a very traditional case size measuring 38.5 mm in diameter and 9.8 mm in thickness, the Lange 1 is a watch that reflects Lange's DNA flawlessly.
