On October 25, 2016, as early as October 24, 1994, the Saxony precision watch brand Lange launched a series of watches, including the well-known LANGE 1 series. It is no accident that Lange chose to release new works today. This day is reminiscent of 22 years ago when the first Lange series was displayed at the Dresden Palace. This limited edition of 100 watches also shows a vague detail: in the rotating city circle, Central European time is represented by Dresden.
The event was located in the Shanghai Museum of Glass. Nearly a hundred media from all over the country participated in this event. The words ‘NEVER STAND STILL’ outside the main venue of the conference came from Mr. Walter Lange.
The bar is also ingeniously designed into the shape of a world time dial and marked with different time zones.

Differences in the new LANGE 1 TIME ZONE
The special edition of LANGE 1 TIME ZONE, which was grandly released this time, is made of 18K honey-colored gold, a special material developed by the Lange brand. This precious material is stronger than other gold alloys. Since 2005, LANGE 1 TIME ZONE has become one of the most popular models in the LANGE 1 series. The well-organized dial structure makes the home time and the second time clear at a glance. The wearer can set the time zone through the button on the side of the case, and the city circle with 24 place names will rotate clockwise. In this special edition, Central European time on the city circle is marked by Dresden, rather than Berlin in the standard model. In addition, every time the button is pressed, the hour hand on the sub-dial also moves clockwise. The wearer can also transfer the regional time on the sub dial to the main dial through a subtle synchronization device.
Another difference from the standard style is the subtle color shift in the urban area. The dot between the city name and Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) changed from red to blue; the outer circle of the second time zone also changed from black to blue.
The new case is made of 18K honey-colored gold and has a diameter of 41.9 mm. This precious material is stronger than other gold alloys. The beautifully decorated watch factory-made L031.1 movement is double-assembled and provides a power reserve of up to three days. LANGE 1 TIME ZONE Special Edition is limited to 100 pieces and is only available at 17 Lange stores.
Explore on travel, create on inspiration
Adolf Lange’s travel map.
This time Langete invited the National Tourism Administration of Germany to recommend travel destinations in Germany: including 25 places of classical inspiration and 25 places of modern inspiration, showing Germany’s achievements in classical culture and arts science and modern industrial arts .
15-year-old Ferdinando Adolf Lange learned from the then-famous watchmaker Gut Cases, and after seven years of professional training, he became a brilliant student and completed his studies with excellent grades. Encouraged by the master Gut Case, Adolf Lange left Dresden in 1837 to explore the world of watchmaking through travel. His first trip was to Paris, France. There he worked as a foreman at the watchmaker’s watch factory, where he studied advanced watchmaking skills with several Parisian watchmakers and studied astronomy and physics at Sorbonne University. Three years later, Adolf Lange went to Switzerland to continue his studies, eventually returning to his hometown of Dresden in 1841. The wealth of knowledge, experience, craftsmanship and creative inspiration learned and gained over the years helped Adolf Lange set up a watchmaking factory in 1845, laying the foundation stone for the watchmaking industry in Saxony. From this, Lange is convinced that ‘the world is to be explored through travel, to constantly learn and comprehend, to be created by inspiration, to contribute and shape a beautiful world’, which is the value of travel.
