One of the first 1s.

.. The sun was the excuse to pick a few photos of the reference 101.001 from A. Lange & Söhne.

Amazing, this one is truly special. The solid caseback

Is the worst and the best thing you could have in an ALS at the same time, given rarity and finish of the movement.

Thank you very much for posting!

I agree...

The solid caseback is both tempting and restrained in a sort of rebel way. Metally more pleasing than visual.
Thank you for respond!

The same

Is this in yellow gold?

To my knowlegde the refrences with solid yellow gold caseback are: 101.001, 101.002, 101.011 and the 151.001.
Last reference comes with an integrated solid gold bracelet.

This first picture is just awesome. [nt]

A watch I wish to have at some point. Beautiful. And now a classic. [nt]

Yes, the Lange 1 has become the brands' classic. Though....

I think that the more general opinion is
that you should be able to see the movement in an A. Lange & Söhne watch.

Very nice! That looks like an older Lange strap, too. Is it actually original to the watch, or perhaps a replacement from many years ago? [nt]

The strap is not worn too much, but seem dry. Maybe some leather/alligator treatment would do it good.

Perhaps! Looks good to me. I was referring to the grain of the alligator on your strap...

Lange used that smaller grain on its older straps, and the larger, more rectangular "bamboo tile" grain on later straps.
