A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Time Zone

Is fifteen years a long time between changes?

There is no actual answer to this question, but in thinking about it, there’s also another thing that might be (re) considered – the perceived ‘need’ to create or present new pieces every year/ half year because of ever decreasing (horological or otherwise) attention spans.

Brands often decide to bring back old pieces in a new form, or to make changes that encompass everything from cosmetic design differences to case tweaks, to more substantive upgrades, usually of the movement. Today is about a watch that has been given a number of amendments along this continuum.

The Lange 1 Time Zone of 2005 has been updated not just with a new in-house calibre but also with some design changes that may seem small, but which actually lend themselves to a cleaner look. It does not make the 2005 look ‘outdated’ in any sense, just different enough to be noticeable. The photo below shows the original model.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
