More about Grande 115.029 Lange 1 Luminous

A. Lange & Söhne is the earliest and one of the greatest precision German watchmakers since 1845. Walter Lange, the fourth generation of Lange horologists, brought the family company back to life in 1990, after the reunification of Germany. He introduced four lines, including the Lange 1, the very first Lange watch of the new era. Made in 18K yellow, white, or pink gold, and platinum, it has been upgraded since and a more recent version is this distinctive Grande Lange 1 luminous, reference 115029. This is a rare and fine, manually winding, 18K white gold Grande Lange 1 luminous wristwatch with a D. matte-black off-set hour dial, luminous Roman numerals and minute indexes and alpha hands, and a power reserve sub-dial. The over-sized double date windows are clever because each digit has its own gear wheel. What's fascinating about the dial is how it's designed, with none of the components overlapping, somewhat like the dashboard of a sports car. The three-piece body has a solid, rounded, polished bezel and a push button on the band to correct the date. The case back is a transparent sapphire crystal with 6 screws for watching the caliber L901.2 movement beat at 21,600 vibrations per hour. The double mainspring barrel delivers a 72-hour power reserve rather than just 48. It has 53 jewels of which nine are set in gold chatons fastened by blued screws, which hold the jewels in more securely. The movement is built of the traditional components found in the renowned Lange pocket watches, including the 3/4 plate made of untreated German silver, a hand-engraved fan-designed balance cock, and the horseshoe-shaped precision whiplash index adjuster. The whiplash spring allows for micrometer-screw adjustment with a swan-neck regulator, and the mechanism can be started without taking apart the balance and changing previous adjustments. There is a straight-line lever escapement with a monometallic balance adjusted to 5 positions, a flat, self-adjusting balance spring, a shock absorber, a hack mechanism, and an engraved balance bridge. The crocodile leather strap has an 18K white gold buckle and the movement, dial, and case are all signed.

I have been dealing with European Watch Company for over ten years, and have purchased several wrist watches, including IWC, Patek Philippe, Rolex, and Jaeger-LeCoultre. They were not only fairly priced but arrived in like-new condition, fully warranted by European Watch Company. This company has an attentive, knowledgeable staff, a large inventory, and is a genuine pleasure to deal with.

Just completed my 7th transaction with EWC and for the 7th time the transaction was smooth, flawless and quick. Joshua is quick to respond to any e-mails and answer any questions. Ashley knows how to complete the necessary paperwork to avoid any delays at Customs as I am located in Canada and all paperwork needs to be completed perfectly which she is an expert at. You only want to deal with the best and the team at EWC is the best. There is a Yiddish word to describe the people at EWC and that word is mensches which translates to people of integrity and honour.

After a lengthy search I located the Patek Philippe I desired at EWC, but the decision to make a high dollar purchase over the internet was a difficult one. Through numerous emails with Justin and looking at reviews of EWC I made the decision to proceed and I am now ECSTATIC. The watch is exactly as described and pictured. It was perfectly packaged and shipped FedEx overnight. My watch collection now includes the watch I have been seeking for over a year.In summary, you can deal with the EWC staff with confidence. They are professional, honest and you will receive a quality watch which will put a smile on your face.

I live in San Francisco but the EWC website is the first place I check once I get an impulse for a particular watch. EWC's website is cozy and feels like home. I enjoy the photos, presentation, description and historical notes of each item and really like their next day delivery, so I stay loyal to them. Sometimes I must wait awhile for a watch to become available but can usually find anything I want. Then there are the watches you never knew you wanted until you see them here.

Dear EWC, I have just completed my very first purchase with your company: a mint Lange Datograph. Robert was extremely help throughout the process with the item delivered nicely packed to my Hong Kong address within days. The condition of the watch was absolutely mint as described and has exceeded my expectations, even under a loupe! I will be a return customer in no time. Well done!
