An extremely rare Glashuette wristwatch with power reserve indicator, oversize date, twin barrel, 72 hours power reserve and 18K GOLD DIAL WITH INTRICATE ENGINE-TURNED PATTERN - produced in a SPECIAL SERIES LIMITED TO ONLY 100 PIECES - THIS IS NO. 1 ! - with original box and A. Lange & Söhne Proof of Origin

Case: 18k gold, sapphire glass screwed on back, "Lange" 18k gold buckle. Dial: 18k gold, engine-turned, applied Roman gold numerals, gold leaf hands.

Its name alone emphases that the LANGE 1A is a timepiece of extraordinary quality. The historic pocket watches made by "A. Lange & Söhne" were designated "1A" to indicate that they embody the ultimate in craftsmanship and incorporate the finest and most precious materials available.
The unusual going train of the LANGE 1A merits a closer look: True to the tradition of the 1A quality hallmark and as compelling evidence of superb workmanship down to the very last detail, this watch is fitted with a gold escape lever and escape wheel. For both of these components, A. Lange & Söhne uses specially hardened white gold because it is much more wear-resistant than yellow gold. The pallet cock, the escape wheel cock, and the balance cock are also made of gold and individually engraved by hand.
The LANGE 1A was available in a limited edition of 100 pieces in yellow gold, with oversized date, twin barrel and power reserve indication, the 18k gold dial with intricate engine-turned pattern. The timepiece was regarded as predecessor of the limited "Handwerkskunst” edition which came out later. It was introduced to commemorate the inauguration of the second Lange manufactory building in 1998 and was produced until 1999.
Case: very good
Dial: as new
Movm.: as new, capable of running
