No, the blue versions of these aren’t exactly completely new. As a matter of fact, they were previously created by the great Gunter Blumlein and produced for a brief few years before they got taken off the market.
Whatever the reason may have stopped their production, can we all agree that we’re all glad they’ve made a comeback. Because the dark blue does seem to serve the Lange aesthetics very well.
Four watches will be produced with the new blue dial: The Lange 1, Lange 1 Daymatic, Saxonia and Saxonia Automatic. All of them will come with a white gold case. These, of course, come hot after the earlier news of the 1815 Rattrapante Perpetual Calendar Handwerkskunst, earlier.
Save for the Lange 1 Daymatic, the other three watches do already exist in white gold, but with a different colored dial. Which means that for the Lange 1 Daymatic, it will be the first time it has had a white gold case.
If looking that the watches is making you wonder why would they have ever run the blue dials only for a short few years and then do away with them, prepare yourself for the next bit of information.
According to A. Lange & Söhne, these four blue dialed watches will not be produced in a limited run per se, rather as many as can be made within the year will be delivered to retailers and boutiques worldwide. Thereafter, the blue dials will again be taken off the catalogues.
But hey, if they made a comeback once surely, they could another time.
