Part of the A. Lange & Söhne family since 2005, the 41.9mm variant – which provides both the time at home and in a second zone at a glance – boasts a newly developed movement and a subtly modified dial.
Visually, the timepiece differs from its predecessor mainly with the day/night indicators for the home and zone times that are positioned in the centre of each of the two time circles. Other design modifications on the dial include the new finer inscription font, and the grey dots between the cities on the city ring.
The indication of daylight-saving time is also a new key feature technically implemented with coding on the underside of the city ring. Located in a small aperture within the gold arrow appliqué at 5 o’clock, the selected city has a daylight-saving time arrangement if the segment is red, while a white background will be displayed if standard time applies to the city year-round.
The entire movement was redesigned as the axes had to be repositioned to accommodate the new day/night indicators and the daylight-saving time indication. This resulted in the 65th movement to be developed in the maison’s manufactory – the calibre L141.1 with a 72-hour power reserve.
The Lange 1 Time Zone comes in three case/dial combinations: white gold with a black dial, pink gold with an argenté dial (main picture), as well as yellow gold with a champagne dial in a limited-edition of 100 pieces.
