A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Blue dial - Ref. 191.028


The Watch

Manufactured in 2017 as part of the esteemed A. Lange & Söhne's 'Blue series,' which also includes the Lange 1 Daymatic, the Saxonia, and the Saxonia Automatic, the A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1, ref 191.028, epitomises the trend towards blue dial aesthetics within the horological realm. Despite the rarity of blue dials in the A. Lange & Söhne collection, this timepiece stands out as a remarkable exception.

The lineage of blue dials within the A. Lange & Söhne catalog traces back to 1997 when the brand introduced the iconic Lange 1, reference 101.027, featuring a striking blue dial. Two decades later, the tradition was revived with the creation of the renewed Lange 1 model, boasting a refined design with a thinner bezel and fonts, alongside an enhanced movement. This edition boasted a captivating deep-blue dial, adhering to the brand's penchant for exceptional craftsmanship and attention to detail. 

The exquisite blue dial of the Lange 1 is meticulously handcrafted from solid silver and adorned with solid-gold appliqués and hour markers, complemented by rhodiumed gold hands. Housed within a classic 18k white gold 38.5mm case, the timepiece features a distinctive decentralised and asymmetrical dial layout. It includes a sub-dial for hours and minutes with appliqué Roman numerals, a smaller seconds sub-dial positioned at 5 o'clock, an oversized double window date display with a quick-change feature, and a power reserve indicator, showcasing the intricate mechanical prowess of A. Lange & Söhne.

The Movement

The A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 191.028 houses the L121.1 caliber, as opposed to the L901.0 caliber from the 1997 101.027-edition. This hand-wound movement has a double-barrel with 72-hour power reserve and a free sprung balance with 6 eccentric poising weights.

How It Wears

The Lange 1 Ref. 191.028 exudes exceptional uniqueness when worn on the wrist. Its moderately sized case, coupled with its distinctive lug design, ensures a superb fit across various wrist sizes, accommodating even those accustomed to larger timepieces exceeding 40mm. The versatile blue hue effortlessly complements a spectrum of outfit colors and styles, effortlessly transitioning from formal to casual settings based on personal preference. Moreover, the timeless elegance of the Lange 1 dial design adds a touch of sophistication to every glance towards the wrist, evoking a sense of occasion that remains timeless.


This A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 is in impeccable condition, showing minimal signs of wear and boasting flawless mechanical performance. It is accompanied by its complete set, comprising the original box and paperwork.


"The ultimate aim of a watchmaker should always be the perfection of each individual timepiece." These resolute words were articulated by Ferdinand Adolph Lange, the visionary behind A. Lange & Söhne in 1845, and they continue to resonate within the ethos of the renowned German watchmaker. Since its inception, this esteemed brand from Glashütte has steadfastly adhered to this principle, consistently challenging the supremacy of its Swiss counterparts.

However, the trajectory of the German watchmaker has not been devoid of challenges. The company's primary facility was obliterated during a bombing raid on the final night of World War II in 1945. Subsequently, in 1948, the brand vanished amidst the Soviet occupation. Nonetheless, the indomitable spirit of the legendary watchmaker endured. Four decades later, coinciding with the fall of the Berlin Wall, Walter Lange, the great-grandson of the founder, resurrected the brand with an unwavering passion for horology.

Lange & Söhne timepieces are renowned for their intricate mechanical movements, distinguished functionality, and cutting-edge precision – all meticulously developed, crafted, and assembled in-house. Typically encased in gold or platinum, these watches epitomize elegance and sophistication, ranging from sleek time-only dress watches to sophisticated complications such as chronographs and perpetual calendars.

Among the myriad achievements following the revival of A. Lange & Söhne, one timepiece stands out: the Lange 1 model, a modern design icon adorned with the brand's signature outside date display. Revered by collectors and industry experts alike, this exceptional model has garnered over forty prestigious awards, cementing its status as a coveted collector's item.
