Lange 1 - 20th Anniversary Lange 1

In 1994, the world was introduced to one of the most iconic timepieces - The Lange One. In 2014, the good people at A. Lange & Söhne unveiled a series commemorating the occasion.

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Lange 1, A. Lange & Söhne presented five exclusive watch sets with the name Lange 1 “20th Anniversary”, consisting of the Lange 1 and the ladies’ watch Little Lange 1.

First, the platinum black dial version of the Anniversary piece. Seen here the pair - the lady's version comes with diamond bezel of course.

The dial is made of solid-gold and is guilloché. Well decorated dial worthy of the 20th Anniversary tag.

And of course the lady's version comes with diamond bezel. These are sold as a pair - limited to 20 watches of each type.

This is the platinum case with a gold rhodium guilloché dial. I love the blue markers on the dial.

Another much sought after combination is the rose gold black dial version. Gorgeous!

They are all gorgeous iterations - whichever combination you choose, it is a winner! The Lange 1 comes with the recognisable large date and 72 hours of power reserve. The Lange 1 is 38.5mm while the Little Lange 1 is 36.1mm.

I know this comes almost a year after the launch and all the timepieces are probably sold out by now, but I thought it was important to feature this important iconic sets. So which is your favourite combo?
