This is an early example of the Lange 1 Tourbillon reference 704.032* in rose gold. It features a silvered dial with rose gold details and hands that tie the aesthetic together. The tourbillon carriage brings to mind the one that featured in the brand’s legendary reference 41000 Jahrhunderttourbillon. In fact, the Lange 1 Tourbillon was issued to celebrate 100 years of that pocket watch. It features the manual wind calibre L961.1 typical of early examples of this reference. The watch has recently been serviced by the brand. 


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 the 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.
