A. Lange & Söhne launches honey-gold limited edition Lange 1 Time Zone

Within the Lange 1 collection, the Lange 1 Time Zone has proved to be one of the most popular references. We attribute it to the beautiful dial, functionality, ease-of-use and, relatively speaking, good value for money. Today A. Lange & Söhne took the wraps of the latest Lange 1 Time Zone, a 100-piece limited edition sporting a delicious honey-gold case.

The Lange 1 Time Zone is a stunner in honey-gold.

A. Lange & Söhne introduces Richard Lange ‘Pour le Mérite’ with white gold case and black dial

Rejoice A. Lange & Söhne aficionados! The Saxon brand has just revived the Richard Lange ‘Pour le Mérite’ in a limited edition of 218 watches. Each will boast a white-gold case, black dial and a black alligator strap. The watch was announced at the brand’s dealer conference in Dresden, though we have a suspicion that this watch was originally intended to be unveiled at the formerly annual Watches & Wonders (now biennial).

If you missed getting the pink-gold and platinum references, this is quite possibly your last chance at this timepiece.

Review: A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Moon Phase, A Watch With Serious Heart

The Saxonia collection has been a part of A. Lange & Söhne’s history since the brand had its rebirth in 1994. Today the collection serves multiple purposes – the most inexpensive Lange can be found in this collection (still mechanical) but you can also turn to this collection if you want seriously complicated watches. The Saxonia Moon Phase that we’re reviewing today was unveiled at SIHH 2016 – we thought it was brilliant back then and now, after spending some more time with it, we’re completely taken with it.

This is one of the best looking moonphase watches of 2016 in our book.

Celebrating Earth Hour with the Grand Lange 1 Moonphase ‘Lumen’

Time flies when you have a great watch on your wrist – we’re now just a few hours away from Earth Hour 2016. For us in the Middle East, and more specifically the UAE, you can participate in the initiative between precisely 8.30pm to 9.30pm. In honor of this important climate change initiative, we thought we’d introduce you to what we think is the perfect watch to keep track of time during this hour, the A. Lange & Söhne Grand Lange 1 Moonphase ‘Lumen’.

The Grand Lange 1 gets the lumens treatment, and it looks the business.

The A. Lange & Söhne Handwerkskunst watches

‘Handwerkskunst’ is the German word for artisanship, and A. Lange & Söhne first introduced watches with this distinction back in 2011. Handwerkskunst watches have dials and movements that are finished with rare and complicated engraving techniques, and are some of the Saxon watchmaker’s most desirable timepieces.

Ever since its rebirth, Lange has taken the watch world by storm. Pictured here is the brand's new manufactory.
