German language offers a term that describes this piece in a fitting way

 
 By: COUNT DE MONET : January 10th, 2019-06:07
The term is: mondän, and means lavish, pompous or swank.
If I use the nearly same looking word mundane from English, then I am left unimpressed by this piece.
Maybe in real live it is convincing but on pictures not really.
Ans I think I know why Lange held back.

Thank you for the news!

It might be just a start!

Good looking but not a “must have”
For a 25 years, there might be more to come!

I just read this small text on the Lange website

 
 By: Maltie : January 10th, 2019-06:17
An additional limited-edition model from this historic family of watches will be unveiled each month until 24.10.2019, the date of LANGE 1’s anniversary.

Each month ??? [nt]

Seems like there will be 10 models this year! OMG!

Here is the text from Lange website :
"In its anniversary year 2019, the manufactory salutes this exceptional timepiece with the white-gold “25th Anniversary” edition – limited to 250 watches. The collection of ten different models, which will be launched consecutively in the course of the year, is dedicated to the key milestones of the LANGE 1 timepiece family. The hallmarks that all models of the edition share are an argenté-coloured dial in solid silver with printed deep-blue numerals and hour markers, blue date numerals, and a colour-coordinated blue alligator leather strap with a grey seam. The engraved hinged cuvette in solid white gold is another characteristic feature. Its engraving depicts the Lange Headquarters that date back to 1873, the names of Walter Lange and Günter Blümlein, and a relief engraving of the inscription “25 YEARS LANGE 1”.

Very intriguing

10 models released.. this being the first. All within the Lange 1 family.
Let me be the first to prognosticate.
1. Standard Lange 1
2. Moonphase
3. Little Lange 1
4. Timezone
5. Daymatic
6. Tourbillon (exposed)
7. Grand Lange 1
8. Grand Moonphase
9. Tourbillon Perpetual
10. *new* Lange 1 Minute Repeater or Sonnerie?
Keenly interested to see how the treatment works on each of the references..

Your forgetting the Zeitwerk. There will be one I'm sure. [nt]

Agreed - but not in this series?

 
 By: colton_d : January 10th, 2019-08:53
The zeitwerk will be getting something for its 10th anniversary, however the press release from Lange said it would be 10 editions of the Lange one to celebrate 25 years. I may be misinterpreting the wording, but it seemed like they would be giving the argente dial/blue hands to only Lange 1 references.
I would be excited to see this given to the zeitwerk though! Here's hoping I am wrong.

A bit boring

on the other hand, if you are looking for something special but still 'under the radar' this could be it. Do like the hunter caseback tho.

+1 on caseback + mentioning of Guenter Bluemlein [nt]

I like it. A lot.

Boring and under the radar is 100% me. OK, maybe not boring when it comes to visits.

Boring my friend

 
 By: Arie - Mr Orange : January 10th, 2019-12:38
you are not.

Indeed boring, for a company that has as motto “Never stand still”. This is another showcase of a stand still if you ask me. [nt]

Apart from the hunter case. That is a nice gimmick.

What were you expecting? Some groundbreaking new tech?

 
 By: zabreg1 Mr White : January 11th, 2019-09:12
For a relatively young company, they have achieved a tremendous amount of technological advancement. Not just with their ground breaking opening salvo back in '94 and the designs they showcased. But Dato chrono movement, PLM line, Triple Split last year, just to name a few. Not every single thing needs to be some major showcase. Plus, you can't time technological advancements for an occasion. When they do happen, it is a big deal unto itself. Every brand does this.
For a LE celebrating some milestone, I like this. It is simple, different from their usual stuff and has the hunter caseback. I have always wanted to add a Lange 1 to the collection, and (even though I absolutely love the moonphase in WG) I believe I like this.

First off

 
 By: Arie - Mr Orange : January 11th, 2019-09:46
I didn’t know they were doing 10 new editions this year. So that is quite an effort. So I’ll retract the meh until the end of the year.

If it would have been just this version i would have thought: meh & boring. Obviously (or perhaps not obviously) not implying that the watch isn’t beautiful as almost everything Lange produces is top notch.

And yes I would have expected ore fireworks (design wise).


So now we know that 9 watches are to follow I’m very curious what will be introduced next! Especially if we will see some badass Zeitwerk 😎

Yes, I think the Zeitwerk will be interesting as well.

 
 By: zabreg1 Mr White : January 11th, 2019-10:38
As for the looks of this (or really any) model, that's subjective anyways. But I trust Lange will have something absolutely WOW this year. No idea what, can only dream of either something in steel or an MR.

If steel....

 
 By: Arie - Mr Orange : January 11th, 2019-10:56
that would be a huge bombshell. And if Lange wants to get to fish in Patek waters they do need an extra push. If done right only a steel (hard to get) sports model will get you there.

On the other hand....maybe Lange should simply stay on this path and let time do the work. Quality wise they are up and beyond.

What in the world do you mean?

 
 By: zabreg1 Mr White : January 11th, 2019-01:32
Aside from my beautiful eyes, I mean.

That is what I mean.

Not saying it was a welcome event, but boring it was not 😂😬🤦🏻‍♂️

Hey, if it was boring, you wouldn't have gone back there recently... [nt]

I wonder if the building on the outer caseback is hand-engraved...

 
 By: CR : January 10th, 2019-06:58
Engraving 250 of those by hand seems like it'd be a lot of work!!

Also, a huge "+1" echoing the explicit recognition of Günter Blümlein!
