Of all the definitive hits produced by A Lange & Sohne, the Lange 1 remains the most definitive. Introduced at the brand’s re-launch in 1994, the enigmatic appeal of its off-centred displays was rapidly embraced and has not subsided over the years.
The brand celebrates the Lange 1 through a project with media artist and choreographer Christian ‘Mio’ Loclair. Loclair is the creative director of the Waltz Binaire design studio, and his work typically involves the fusion of technology and art.
The short video features Loclair himself and examines the design elements of the Lange 1 – asymmetry, balance and proportion – through dance. It also ponders other watchmaking philosophical motifs such as the fusion of organic and mechanical, and of movement and mathematics.

The LANGE 1 TIME ZONE indicates the time at home and in another time zone at a single glance. Each time the corrector button at 8 o’clock is pressed, the city ring jumps from west to east by one time zone, while the hour hand advances the zone time by one hour. First launched in 2005, this timepiece for global citizens now features a new manufacture calibre while retaining the same dimensions as the previous version: 41.9 mm in diameter and a height of 10.9 mm. It comes in three case/dial combinations: white gold/black, pink gold/argenté, and yellow gold/champagne – the latter limited to 100 pieces and only available in our boutiques. #alangesoehne #lange1timezone #watchesandwonders #hautehorlogerie #timepieceperfection #1connectedwiththeworld
