Who says bigger watches are going out of style? At SIHH 2008 A.Lange & Sohne announced a new watch, the Grand Lange 1. Which is a 42mm version of the Lange 1, originally in a 38mm case. This is a move towards larger watches by the high-end German watch manufacturer, which has traditionally made watches in the 38-40mm category.


The watch movement is the A.Lange L901.2, which is slightly modifed from the L901.0 in the original Lange 1, in what way, I’m not sure, but enough to warrant a decimal place 🙂

The is manually wound, with power reserve a hearty 3 Days or 72 hours – 53 Jewels, and adjusted to 5 positions. The case is white or rose gold and platinum. Watch complications include a power reserve indication, big date display, and sub seconds. as well as off-center hour and minute hands.
