A heavy and rare Glashuette platinum wristwatch with Lange oversize date and 72h power reserve indicator with A. Lange & Söhne Proof of Origin. This is one of the earliest LANGE 1 models of the first collection, which was presented in 1994. The specially developed manual wind calibre L901.0 set a benchmark in terms of quality. In 1994, only a few examples left the manufactory with the originally planned solid back, until it was replaced by the transparent sapphire crystal case back requested by retailers and customers.

Product Description

Ever since the first collection of the new era was presented in 1994, the LANGE 1 has been the face of A. Lange & Söhne. Reference 101.005 features a platinum case with solid caseback, hiding the manually wound calibre L901.0 movement from view. It also features a jumping outsize date. It advances instantaneously by one day at midnight and therefore always delivers a doubt-free reading.

When it launched in 1994, the LANGE 1 certainly broke the mould with the design of its dial. All indications are in peripheral positions, which gives the watch its distinctive appearance and at the same time ensures perfect readability, because none of the displays overlap.
The design of the LANGE 1 follows a coherent principle: the centres of the subsidiary seconds dial, the main dial and the outsize-date display are at the corners of an isosceles triangle. The proportions of the outsize-date display are harmonious as well: they respect the rule of the golden ratio.
