The world of rare Lange watches is a heady one, and that only gets more intense when the watches are in stainless steel. Past results have been strong, and have only been getting stronger. Today seems to cement that. For some context, Christie’s has sold two stainless steel Lange 1s, in 2013 and 2014, with both achieving prices over CHF 100,000. And, in 2016, the auction house sold an even rarer steel Lange 1 with a black dial for $233,000. The only other Lange with a black enamel dial is the 2014 Lange 1 Tourbillon Handwerkskunst, which was limited to just 20 pieces and was priced at $221,700 upon release. Since then, the watch has held its value, with one selling for a few thousand dollars more than that at Phillips Hong Kong in November 2017.
