Lange collectors looking at this anniversary watch may have a sense that they’ve been here before. That’s because the dial appears to be a strong nod to the Lange 1 ref. 101.027x, a cult classic, with its printed dial, blued steel hands, and the two-tone, recessed nature of the dial. This watch, like the 101.027x, also has a white gold case. This dial is also very similar to the silver dial variation of one of the rarest Lange 1s of all, the 101.026 in stainless steel. For an in-depth look at the most important Lange 1 models of the last 25 years, check out the Reference Points article I wrote in the HODINKEE Magazine Volume 3.
