I think that 2013 will be a great year for the  “world”  of  horology!

For A. Lange & Söhne watches  it will start with this great looking and high-end Grand Lange 1 Lumen.

This timepiece is a very typically A. Lange & Söhne design.

It is a great watch, but it does not give  me a sense that it is a new model, after all, it is like “all” other of their models.

The new version of the Grand Lange 1 is about 41 mm wide and is one of A. Lange & Sohne’s best pieces yet to come out from the German manufactory.

With this Platinum case and limited edition  of only 100 pieces, it features an in-house made A. Lange & Sohne the Caliber L095.2 movement.
