Last year, on February 23, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the opening of the Shop in the district of Ginza a Tokyo, the Sassone brand presents a limited edition of 20 pieces of its historic Lange 1 Daymatic.
Mirror image of the iconic Lange 1, the most representative model of the collection, it too was created in 1994 and was part of the 4 watches launched when the brand returned to light after a long period. The Lange 1 Daymatic is not only the visual opposite of the Lange 1, it also has features and technical differences. It mounts an automatic caliber (and not a manual one like the traditional Lange 1) which is rather complex considering its 426 components which is obviously visible through the caseback, decorated in the traditional Saxon manner. As already mentioned, in terms of design, the Lange 1 Daymatic is a mirror image of the Lange 1, the indications, in fact, are quite close together, but positioned in the opposite way. The off-center hours and minutes are located on the right side of the dial (at 3 o'clock). The large patented date, an obligatory feature of this collection, is positioned at 11 o'clock and the normal power reserve found on the Lange 1 is here replaced by a practical indication of the day of the week, with retrograde operation.
The "birthday" version of A. LANGE & SÖHNE LANGE 1 DAYMATIC TOKYO celebrates the 39,5th anniversary of the Japanese boutique in an elegant and refined way. Also crafted on a 20mm white gold case, this limited edition of XNUMX pieces has, however, a different dial. The silver-plated solid gold plate has a complex guilloché pattern with a concentric wave pattern, and is perfectly coordinated with the blued steel hands and the various white gold applications. To remain consistent with this silver / blue combination, the large date numbers and lettering on the dial are always blue, a constant concept, which continues with a dark blue alligator leather strap with solid white gold pin buckle.
Presented in a limited series of 20 pieces, this anniversary edition by A. LANGE & SÖHNE LANGE 1 DAYMATIC TOKYO was only available at the boutique in the Japanese capital.
