This Lange 1 is a limited edition of 25 pieces and features a dark blue “Soirée” mother-of-pearl dial that is reminiscent of a stormy sky. Created exclusively for the Dubail watch store in Paris, it’s one of the lesser-known Lange 1 models.
Made for the Dubail watch store in Paris, this Lange 1 reference 110.049 is a variation of the “Soirée” collection and is limited to just 25 pieces. The watch possesses a plain mother-of-pearl dial with a blueish tint, invoking the image of a cloudy sky just before a storm. A distinctive example, the watch is an artistic take on the typical Lange 1 aesthetic.
As you might expect, mother of pearl is extremely delicate, and therefore remarkably difficult to work with. The shells need to be carefully selected, polished, and cut, before they go through the brand’s meticulous finishing and assembly process. The iridescent quality of the dial allows it to evolve beneath different types of lighting, creating interesting effects. Because of the natural material used, no two shells will display exactly the same pattern.
Otherwise, the watch features all the characteristic design cues and excellent finishing that can be found on a typical Lange 1 piece, such as the asymmetrical dial, oversized date window, and beautifully decorated movement. Its movement, the L901.4, differs very slightly from the usual calibre used, in order to accommodate the increased thickness of the dial. The diameter however still remains 38.5mm. Ultimately, the watch is a testament to A. Lange & Söhne’s versatility, while showcasing yet another aspect of the Lange 1 – an excellent choice for the collector looking for a modern classic that has something special.

The name Lange has been tied to watchmaking and the Saxony area of Germany for centuries. In the 1800s, Ferdinand Aldoph Lange – which is where the “A” in A. Lange & Söhne comes from – began his watchmaking journey under the tutelage of master watchmaker, Johann Christian Friedrich Gutkaes. Passed from father to son, the Lange name flourished, before encountering considerable obstacles during 20th century.
In 1990, the brand was resuscitated by Walter, the great-grandson of Ferdinand Adolph Lange, and watch industry veteran Günter Blümlein. A Nuremberg native, Blümlein grew up in post-war Germany, and had previously overseen the resurgence of IWC and Jaeger-LeCoultre. This started the four-year journey that Lange and Blümlein would go on with their small team to bring the company back from the ashes, with the release of their first four models on 25th October 1994.
