The new Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase from A. Lange & Söhne will get its public debut at SIHH 2014 in Geneva next month. Keeping consistency in the design language of Lange 1 collection, Grand Lange 1 has stayed close to home with its two sub-dials and the moon phase. The main highlight lies with the oversized moon phase that resides within the hour and minute dial.
The case of the watch measures 40mm in width and 9.5mm in thickness, which is more than enough room to hold the 4.7mm thin movement. The L095.3 caliber manual wind movement features a power reserve of 72 hours and a frequency of 21,600 vph. Visible through the sapphire crystal case back, movement’s lavish decorations are done in the classic Lange style.
The dial features the off-centered main dial with moon phase, subsidiary seconds dial at five o’clock and the power reserve indicator between two o’clock and four o’clock. The outsize date display is at one o’clock. The aesthetically pleasing moon phase consists of a blue-coated gold disk adorned with 382 stars. According to Lange, moon phase produces an accuracy rate of 99.998% due to its in-house developed balance spring.
The Glashutte-based watchmaker plans to unveil three variants of the Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase next month. The cases are made in yellow gold, pink gold and in platinum with matching hands and numerals. All three are fitted with a hand-stitched alligator leather strap. Pricing is published as €38,900 for gold watches and €50,900 for the platinum.
