In 2017, after 15 years of its launch, the iconic LANGE 1 MOON PHASE timepiece from A. Lange & Söhne will be endowed with a new movement. This new upgraded model will be unveiled at the upcoming SIHH exhibition in Geneva. The new version takes a new and particularly realistic approach by combining the moon-phase display with a day/night indicator. The moon-phase display of this watch tracks the lunar cycle – with an average duration of 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes and 3 seconds – so accurately that it takes 122.6 years for the display to deviate from the true synodic period by just one day.
