Celebrating 20 Years of Lange 1

Turning 20 is a big deal, especially when you’ve been representing the identity and core values of a brand like A. Lange & Söhne for all that time. On October 24 of this year, the iconic Lange 1 will have been in production for 20 years, and will continue to be tasked with upholding the brand values of the Saxon watchmaking company. To commemorate this event, Lange is releasing five different limited-edition watch pairs, consisting of a 38.5mm Lange 1 (for men) and a 36.1mm Lange 1 (for ladies). Both watches are just 10mm thick and each set is limited to a mere 20 pairs.

Omega Speedmaster Apollo 11 45th Anniversary touches down in Dubai

On July 20, 1969, at 20:18 UTC, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin ‘Buzz’ Aldrin made history when they touched down on the lunar surface in the Apollo 11 lunar module, named ‘Eagle’. Six hours later, at 02:56 UTC, Armstrong and Aldrin then became the first humans to set foot on the surface of the moon. Strapped to Aldrin’s wrist, on the outside of his space suit, was Omega’s manual winding Speedmaster Professional chronograph.

We have touch down, just in time for the actual 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission.

MB&F introduces the 40mm Legacy Machine 101

Full admission: this is the MB&F timepiece that we have been waiting for. The new Legacy Machine 101 (LM101) is every bit a MB&F, with that beautiful domed crystal and enormous flying balance wheel but the LM101 also features a brand new in-house designed movement, and perhaps more importantly, a traditional 40mm case. It looks incredible.

Finally! An MB&F that won't dwarf our wrist.
