Grand Lange 1117.028Lange 1 Family
The characteristic face of the Lange 1 with the off-centre, non-overlapping displays was transposed to the dimensions of the Grand Lange 1 down to the very last detail. The outsize date was enlarged as well and now has the biggest format of all Lange watches to date. The outsize-date mechanism, a stop-seconds mechanism and a power-reserve display mechanism are incorporated in the manually wound movement of the Grand Lange 1.

Detailed features & specifications
This model was introduced in 2013. The dial is crafted from solid silver and graced with solid-gold appliques and hour markers. The hands are made of rhodiumed gold. The hour, minute, and power-reserve hands as well as the hour and power-reserve markers are luminous.
During the development of the GRAND LANGE 1 presented in 2012, the objective was to transpose the face and the harmonious proportions of the LANGE 1 to this model which is 2.5 millimetres larger. In this undertaking, the engineers chose an uncommonly complex path: they first designed the optimised arrangement of the displays and then developed a custom movement that accommodated the architecture of the dial down to the very last detail.
The GRAND LANGE 1 owes its elegance not only to the harmonious dial layout but also to its slender silhouette. With a diameter of 41.0 millimetres, the case is only 8.8 millimetres high – a well-balanced ratio of diameter to height. To assure the maximum rate accuracy of the manually wound L095.1 calibre, it is endowed with a balance spring developed and manufactured in-house.
