There’s something inherently poetic about the moon-phase complication, but this latest Little Lange 1 Moon Phase takes that idea to a whole other level. This latest iteration of Lange’s small-but-mighty classic is all about the new dial treatment, which is a dark blue “gold flux” material that sparkles like the night sky.
It’s a very similar material to what most brands call “aventurine” or “aventurine glass,” with tiny particles suspended in a glassy medium, giving it a ton of visual depth and a bit of shine. To continue the astronomical theme, the hour markers are tiny white gold stars (between the classic Roman numerals at 12-3-6-9), and the moon-phase disc has an applied white gold moon and 628 additional stars.
If all of that sparkle isn’t enough for you, there’s a version of this watch with 56 brilliant-cut diamonds adorning the bezel (1.2 total carats) for a little extra oomph. You might not need it, but it certainly doesn’t hurt.
