We Never Go Out of Style!

I was watching the Taylor Swift music video Style and the image of the Lange One came to mind. How appropriate!

Even though the timepiece was first unveiled in 1994, the Lange One is still so stylish. For the longest time, the Lange One was my dream watch (and still is) and it means a lot to me to own one of these beauties.

The iconic timepiece with the off-centre dial and large date is unmistakably the Lange One.

The class and finesse of the dial is so pure.

The off centre dial - the hands and the applied markers are very well finished.

And the large date window...

And Lange is always about looking at the movement side too. The Glashutte ribbing and the three quarter (German silver) plate with all the rubies and blued screws add to the beauty of the movement.

And the close up of the engraved balance cock - another hallmark of Lange.

The Lange One has been updated but the essential DNA stays intact. After all these years, why change something when it is still relevant and attractive. We never go out of style!
