25 years, a big anniversary, better, a Jubilée for the brand re birth and the Lange One which quickly became an iconic watch. 

So, no wonder why this reference has been chosen for a series of commemorative pieces.

Lange is working from the " basic " Lange One to issue, each month till October a new " Anniversary " watch.

So, this Lange One 25th anniversary has a 38, 5 mm case, 10, 7 mm high, in white gold. 

The dial is made of solid silver, with blue printed indices, hour markers and date.

The movement is the Cal 121-1, manual winding,72 hours power reserve, made in german silver, 368 parts, 8 screwed gold chatons, with a hand engraved balance cock. Credit picture: Lange & Sohne:

Till there, even if it is, as always, beautifully made, nothing really special. 

The special touches are:

- A hunter case back, engraved,

- Some parts of the hand engraved balance cock in blue, with a 25 in blue, too, to high light the 25th anniversary in question.

Nice, elegant, yes, without doubt, but for the 25th anniversary, I would have seen something else in addition to the hunter case back and the blue hand engraved balance cock,  to reinforce the commemoration of such a special event, something like an enamel dial, and why not, a 25 at 5 o clock instead of the 5, in Red, or Blue. 

Maybe we'll have something more " special " for the later Anniversary watches coming from February to October? 

What do  you think? 

Best,

Nicolas

Nice write-up i feel the general consensus on this one is that its not "special enough" as much as i like the 25 on the balance cock i would have much preferred the usual floral pattern and perhaps like you said an enamel dial with some red marking!

Thanks, Moe. Maybe they will do something more special for the " Anniversary " watches to come till October?

they will. but this is not a very promising start- tbh I've been going back and forth on this one for a while, it does look much nicer in person but when i look at it side by side with my RS Lange 1 i just feel like they've missed the mark somehow. Also, a new anniv...

I have the same question regarding the other LE's. Probably each of them will play in a different category of price...

Disclaimer: This article does not intend to promote or to undermine any aspects of the watch, and is purely a study of the movement out of interest by a non-professional hobbyist. Credit where its due that FP Journe made a new split-second watch for Only Watch 2017, and (unlikely) might see the possibility that this may appear as a regular production piece! With the recent announcement of Only Watch 2017, it comes as no surprise to expect a feast of interesting timepieces up for viewing. Typically, most brands ... .
