A. Lange & Söhne - Blue, pink, gray and blue again

A. Lange & Söhne Blue, pink, gray and blue again

Lange's 2021 novelties are a mix of new versions, new interpretations and colour variations. Be it for ladies', complicated, or extremely complex timepieces

It first came out in the  Lange 1 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar. The perpetual calendar that doesn't look like one becomes self-reliant with the Lange 1 Perpetual Calendar. In a 41.9 mm pink gold or gray gold case, this timepiece uses the Lange 1's layout only to reverse it. The hours are now near the crown and a retrograde day sits at 9 o'clock. The month is on an inconspicuous peripheral ring and the leap year is nestled in an even more low-profile window. Without really mentioning it, Lange have used an automatic movement, which is both clever and practical for a QP, which needs to keep running to keep up with the date.

The gray dial (made of silver) with rose gold indices is very chic, but the other one, pink with silver markers, is plain gorgeous, for good reason : it's made of solid, plain, rose gold.

Lange call the Triple Split « the ultimate chronograph ». One cannot deny there is something truly un paralleled about this timepiece. All the split-seconds chronographs on earth do the bare minimum and stick to their definition : they split the seconds, and don't care about the minutes and further up the time scale. The Double Split (launched in 2004) was the only one to go the extra mile and measure two simultaneous events on a 30-minute scale. The Triple Split tops it all with its three rattrapante hands, one on each chronograph subdial. Which takes it to a maximum of 12 hours. Initially launched in 2018 in a gray gold case, it was a very limited series. It's now back with an extra 100 pieces, in a 43.2 mm rose gold case coupled with a deep blue dial. The chronograph hands' colours are reversed : the main hands are in gray gold and the ones doing the catching up (which is what rattrapante means) are in rose gold.

After ornate, guilloché dials, the Little Lange 1 is following in the footsteps of the Saxonia Thin and puts on an aventurine glass dial. The 36.8 mm white gold case is still circled by a ring or 56 diamonds, whose light add to the metal particles trapped in the blue glass. Their shimmer extends to the alligator strap, which is glittering blue.
