SIHH 2016: A. Lange & Söhne: SIHH 2016 is happening as we speak and novelties from all manufactures are puring into my mailbox. A. Lange & Söhne launched a couple of goodies that I want to share with you. Above you can see the new version of a cult classic, the Lange 1 “Lumen”, now with moon phase. A new tourbillon Datograph with a black dial is also very exciting news.

A. Lange & Söhne named their new black beauty Datograph Perpetual Tourbillon. They spent a lot of time and resources on combining several complex mechanisms in a movement with the established A. Lange & Söhne feel. I believe it is a smart move to launch this watch with the black dial. The aesthetics of the Datograph is kept and the black plays well with the 41,5 mm platinum case. Inside you will find a L952.2 movement. The watch is limited to only 100 pieces. See a video of the watch at A. Lange & Söhne.
Saxonia Moon Phase comes in both white gold and pink gold. It is a clear cultivation of the Saxonia line. The balance in the dial design with the date at 12 o’clock and the moon phase at 6 o’clock gives this watch an elegant and classic look. The case is 40 mm. One other special thing about this watch is that it will run continuously without the need to reset for 122,6 years. It has a power reserve of 72h, but wind it and it will last two lifetimes. That is impressive for a relatively inexpensive watch.
The classic Lange 1 now comes in a 38,5 mm white gold case. After the relaunch last year of the new and improved L121.1 movement, this edition is a welcomed addition to the pink gold, yellow gold and platinum.
A new Richard Lange watch is nothing but spectacular. The fact that A. Lange & Söhne have wanted to do a jumping seconds is not that unexpected, but when it turns out to be as good as the new Richard Lange Jumping Seconds, then I am all in. The platinum case measures 39,9 mm, and the dial is a beautiful Regulator style dial. A constant-force mechanism keeps perfect time throughout the entire deload of the spring. Power reserve is 42 h, and at 10 h remaining there will be a red indicator at 4 o’clock. The watch comes limited to 100 pieces.
Finally there will be a new edition to the 2013 cult classic “Lumen”. Grand Lange 1 Moon Phase “Lumen” discloses that it is a moon phase, but the production of this luminous moon is quite special. The moon dial is cut in glass and there have been 1164 stars embossed in the glass by a special laser technique. The luminous material have been placed on the back of this glass. The main dial is made of a special black glass that only permits the UV spectrum that charge the lumen to come through. 72 h power reserve and a 41 mm platinum case.
