The new Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase gives the moon-phase display, which, by the way, is designed to remain accurate for 122.6 years, distinctive prominence on the dial. A patented coating process for the lunar disc endows this astronomical complication with a remarkably lifelike appearance.
Combining an off-centre dial, the outsize date and a lavishly finished manufacture calibre, the Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase features all of the iconic hallmarks of A. Lange & Söhne's most famous timepiece family. The considerable 72-hour power reserve was achieved with only one mainspring barrel. This is why the height of the movement is a scant 4.7mm.
Endowed with a classic screw balance, a balance spring developed and manufactured in-house, a three-quarter plate made of untreated German silver, and lavishly hand-decorated movement parts, the Lange manufacture calibre L095.3 unites all of the classic features that prompt connoisseurs around the world to associate A. Lange & Söhne timepieces with Saxon watchmaking artistry and superior precision.
