A gentleman's heavy Glashuette wristwatch with Lange oversize date, zone time with city ring, separate day/night indicators for home and zone time, auxiliary seconds and power reserve indicator in mint condition - with original box Case: 18k pink gold, sapphire glass screw on back, 18k "Lange" pink gold buckle. Dial: solid silver. Movm.: 4/5 plate movement, hack feature, Glucydur screw balance.
The LANGE 1 TIME ZONE indicates the current time in all of the world’s 24 time zones while simultaneously displaying home time. A peripheral city ring makes it possible to set the zone times with pushbutton convenience. Thus, both times are readable at a glance. The small dial indicates the time in a second time zone. A solid-gold applied arrow points at the city that represents the time zone to which the watch is momentarily set. When the time-zone pusher in the left-hand case flank is pressed, this causes the city ring and the hour hand of the smaller dial as well as its day/night indicator to advance step by step until the current time in the respective time zone is displayed. This function is handled by a complicated 67-part correction mechanism. The city ring with the 24 time zones is slanted by 10 degrees toward the outside to minimise the shadow effect and make the city names easier to read.
