A. Lange & Söhne - Lange 1 Time Zone 2020

Fifteen years after its launch, in 2020 the Lange 1 Time Zone by A. Lange & Söhne introduces a new manufacture calibre and a slight facelift.

Based on the Lange 1 with its asymmetric dial and outsize date, the new version of the Lange 1 Time Zone further enhances the legibility of its 24 time zones display while delivering the superb craftsmanship that you expect from the Saxon watchmaker.

In contrast to most world time watches, the Lange 1 Time Zone provides the time at home and the time in a second zone at a glance.

The larger time circle shows home time, the smaller of the two time circles can be set to a second time zone by adjusting the city ring. When the time is adjusted with the crown, both displayed times are corrected simultaneously.

The most evident change is that the day/night indicators for home time and zone time, originally displayed with rotating arrow hands, have been shifted to the centres of the two time circles.

In combination with the hour hand, these ring-shaped day/night indicators inform the user whether the time indication applies to the first or second half of the day.  Featuring blue printed semicircles, the discs rotate once about their axes in 24 hours while the hour hand performs two revolutions in the same period. When it is located in the dial-colour segment, the display spans the period from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on the blue background from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Another new feature can be found in the small aperture of the golden arrow applique at 5 o’clock that indicates the reference location for the zone time that has been set. If the aperture is red, the respective city has a daylight saving time regime. In this case, one hour has to be added to the zone time from the spring to the autumn in the northern hemisphere and from late summer to the spring in the southern hemisphere. If standard time applies to the city all year round, the display appears on a bright background. This feature is technically implemented with coding on the underside of the city ring.


The adjustment of the second time zone is based on a switchable city ring with the 24 time zones defined in 1884 and represented by 24 locations. When the corrector button at 8 o’clock is pressed, the city ring jumps from west to east by one time zone. At the same time, the hour hand in the small subsidiary dial advances by one hour thus indicating the zone time of the city beneath the golden arrow applique that stands for that particular time zone.

The hands on the large numerals circle can be set to display the time at home or the time in another freely selectable time zone. To simplify the distinction, zone time is indicated with printed Arabic numerals while home time is displayed with gold Roman numeral appliques.

The new model also retains the synchronisation mechanism that makes it possible to transfer zone time from the smaller to the larger dial. This is a very useful feature, especially when the user wishes to swap zone time and main time after a long trip, for example. If the crown is pulled out to the second position, the times of both zones can be adjusted synchronously. But in the process, if the button for setting the second time zone is pressed and held, the hour hand for zone time will stay in its position. Now, the defined new main time can be set independently of the zone time.

Finally, using the pusher at 10 o’clock it is possible to correct the outsize date which is connected with main time, if needed.

With the new manufacture calibre L141.1, all models of the Lange 1 watch family that were originally based on the calibre L901 are now equipped with new movements. In comparison with the predecessor model, the 72-hour power reserve is achieved with only one spring barrel. Further technical details include a classic screw balance and a freely oscillating balance spring crafted in-house and calibrated for a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour.

With its typical three-quarter plate made of untreated German silver, the L141.1 is embellished by screwed gold chatons, blued screws, an elaborate whiplash precision index adjuster as well as hand-engraved balance and intermediate-wheel cocks.

    1. I choose the dial because they did a great job in terms of design.
