A Glashuette wristwatch in practically new condition, with Lange oversize date, zone time with city ring, separate day/night indicators for home and zone time, auxiliary seconds and power reserve indicator. This is one of the earliest LANGE 1 ZEITZONE models of the first collection, which was presented in 2005 - with operating instructions, original certificate, Lange-booklet, Lange-guarantee seal dated July 8, 2005 and additional original certificate of the so called "Timezone Launch Event"

Case: 18k pink gold, sapphire glass screwed on back, "Lange" 18k pink gold buckle. Dial: solid silver, argenté.

When the LANGE 1 ZEITZONE was launched on July 8, 2005, Lange & Söhne hosted one of the biggest media events ever – the so-called Timezone Launch Event. Lange employees travelled all over the world to simultaneously present the new timepieces during live broadcasts. Certificates were presented, reading: "This A. Lange & Söhne masterpiece belongs to the debut series of 150 watches made available to participating jewellers on the occasion of the global launch event of the LANGE 1 TIME ZONE on 8 July 2005. The timepiece was personally delivered by an A. Lange & Söhne watchmaker. Is is one af an exclusive three-watch set consisting of a platinum, a yellow-gold, and a pink-gold model. - "May the LANGE 1 TIME ZONE be a dependable companion on all of your journeys around the world"."

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.
Case: very good
Dial: as new
Movm.: as new, capable of running, cleaning recommended
