“Thousands of tiny stars seem to sparkle on the dark-blue dial …” (ALS press text)

It´s true, but not all the time and this is good news. Imagine that glamour 24h/7d on your wrist, it may be too much – even overwhelming, won´t it?

Depending on the light situation you may see all of them “sparkling”, just a few or none of them. The latter is when you can enjoy only a dark blue dial featuring the classic Lange 1 design.

If you are familiar with the collection from A. Lange & Söhne you will know that there are/have been quite a few different versions of (little) Lange 1´s with a moon phase indication:

It´s only a few examples to share for now, to get the idea. The one we feature today is probably the most subtle yet sophisticated one – on the first view and in detail.

Some facts:

In recent years it got more and more common that our ladies took over parts of our watch collections, because they liked the “bigger ones” on their wrist as well. Almost nothing was safe anymore, but honestly most of us men liked it anyway as it looks ´sexy` quite often – male watches on female wrists.

One the wrist (mine, if you don´t mind ? )

It´s a winner, but … Ladies this time you must share!

This lovely Little (not so little!) Lange 1 Moon Phase looks nice on all genders, with appropriate lifestyle. Except of sporty occasions, it´s an excellent (and eclectic) choice to spice up your dress code – may its jeans or black-tie events. Me would only recommend playing with different straps, because the one delivered with the watch is slightly female – at least in my book.

Ladies & gents, sharing is a great excuse to invest in your pleasure … ´unisex` is getting more and more attractive – even for the budget ?

Yours truly,
